MOLY
Heavy duty Industrial EP grease

Description

The MOLY heavy duty grease with ANTIFRICTION TREATMENT outperforms all other heavy duty greases on the market.

Characteristics and Benefits

The MOLY grease unique formulation includes such elements as:

  • 5% Molybdenum disulphide compound;
  • Overbased calcium sulfonate complex;
  • Superior quality mineral base oil;
  • PROLAB's ANTIFRICTION TREATMENT.
  • Its exclusive PROLAB formula brings the MOLY grease to an exceptional level of performance: it is super adherent and reduces friction, protects against rust, corrosion and oxidation, provides exceptional load, shock, impact and washout resistance as well an excellent mechanical stability.

The exceptional properties of the MOLY grease bring notable benefits from regular use including less frequent lubricating jobs and substantial savings on maintenance costs.

Available in NLGI grades 0, 1 and 2, PROLAB's MOLY heavy-duty grease is safe to use as it contains no contaminants harmful to the environment and can be used all year-round.

Types of Application

The MOLY heavy-duty grease is a must for every type of business, no matter what the size or the nature of the operations. It is very sticky and is recommended for all applications where load and washout resistance are of utmost importance. It is particularly efficient for the greasing of joints, pins and slide tracks.

Directions for Use

Always use the MOLY heavy-duty grease in reference to the equipment manufacturer's manual.

Warning

The MOLY heavy-duty grease is not recommended for equipment with a rotational speed exceeding 1200 rpm.

Whenever performing a grease change, make sure to validate the compatibility of the various greases used (refer to ).PROLAB's grease compatibility chart
