For best results on Z axis screws make sure that surfaces are clean before applying (If heavily contaminated clean with isopropyl alcohol and dry).
Remove foil seal under cap, twist nozzle to open, squeeze tube to prime the nozzle.
For Z axis apply directly to the threads of the lead screw, a thin line running up the thread will work well. Move Z axis up and down repeatedly to ensure even coating.
Do not "overgrease" - a thin, even covering is all that is required - remove any excess to prevent fling and contamination.
Reapply as needed.
Please note that for plastic on plastic or metal on plastic applications silicone based lubricants are preferable.
