White Lithium Grease + PTFE H-2 reaction to H2O2

I understand that lithium grease is comprised of lithium soap and oil. With it's hydrophobic properties, what would be the reaction to hydrogen peroxide above 50% concentration? From what I gather, there's isn't much within Lithium Grease that could be a catalyst for H2O2 to oxidize, other than oil products. In this case, with PTFE based oil the reaction should be inert. 


To understand my predicament, I work with stainless steel fasteners. They have a tendency to gall, and have a single use typically. I want to apply lubrication to these fasteners but they happen to be around H2O2. They may never make contact with it, but in the event they did - I'd need to know what would happen.
