For reliable lubrication of components: Lubricating greases are formulated for the long-term lubrication of roller, sliding, and linear bearings, as well as sliding surfaces, gear wheels, and gear teeth. Greasing provides outstanding protection against corrosion and prevents age-related material fatigue. Greases must remain soft and supple, even at extremely low temperatures. At the same time, they may not become runny or drip at high temperatures.
Lubricating greases are made from a base oil to which thickeners are added. Thickeners, in turn, are special soaps which are, for example, manufactured on the basis of the metals lithium, calcium, aluminium, barium, or sodium. Lubricating greases are also treated with additives that protect mechanical components against wear and corrosion.
