Protech Red Grease Lithium Complex EP2

Protech Red Grease is a premium, high melting point, lithium complex NLGI 2 grease.

It is a high temperature and high EP (Extreme Pressure) grease designed to meet the demands of the most hostile grease applications and conditions.

Protech Red Grease formulation features include components that provide extreme pressure (EP) and anti-wear (AW) protection, tackiness and adhesiveness agents that allow the grease to stay-put under high water pressure conditions.

In addition to the EP, AW and exceptional water resistance properties Protech Red Grease also provides a high level of oxidation, rust and corrosion protection Protech Red Grease is a hi-tech grease with advanced component technology that will ensure outstanding service in the most demanding applications particularly for expensive and key equipment.

The state-of-the-art equipment and procedures employed to manufacture Protech Red Grease provides this grease with a high degree of mechanical and storage stability. It will not break down under high mechanical stress In storage it will not alter consistency or release oil.

 

Applications

Protech Red Grease is recommended for use in most types of automotive and industrial applications including heavy duty service where high temperatures, high loads and water spray or ingress are encountered. It is suitable for rolling element bearings, plain bearings, chassis parts, gears and couplings.  Because of it’s outstanding corrosion and water resistant properties.

it is particularly suitable where water is present such as steel mills, underground tunneling or mining and ore crushing plants.

The recommended operating temperature range is from –10 degrees C to 200 degreesC.

Protech Red Grease can endure higher temperatures for short periods or if the lubrication frequency is increased.
