AMSOIL Synthetic Polymeric Off-Road Grease NLGI #2 (GPOR2)September 14, 2015
AMSOIL Synthetic Water Resistant Grease
Reformulated with calcium sulfonate complex thickeners to provide even better protection and performance. The new thickener allows AMSOIL Synthetic Water Resistant Grease to provide improved extreme-pressure properties, corrosion resistance, oxidation resistance, high-temperature stability and water resistance at the same price as the previous formulations. AMSOIL Synthetic Water Resistant Grease is an extreme-pressure grease formulated specially for wet-duty performance. Composed of premium-quality synthetic base oils and calcium sulfonate complex thickeners, AMSOIL Water Resistant Grease provides exceptional film strength, shear resistance, adhesion properties and mechanical stability. Its water washout and sprayoff resistance are outstanding for applications frequently exposed to water, mud, snow or ice, including ATVs, UTVs, snowmobiles and boat trailers. NLGI #2.
Synthetic Water Resistant Grease
Superior Lubrication and Protection in Automotive and Industrial Applications
Resists water washout and degradation. Unparalleled protection for boat trailer wheel bearings and other components frequently exposed to water. Stays in place, lubricates and protects against rust.
Package sizes include:
- 3-oz. Cartridges (not sold individually, comes in a pack of 3)
- 14-oz. Cartridge
- 35-lb. Lug
- 120-lb. Keg
AMSOIL Synthetic Water-Resistant Grease is an extreme-pressure grease formulated specially for wet-duty performance. Composed of premium-quality synthetic base oils and calcium-sulfonate complex thickeners, Water-Resistant Grease provides exceptional film strength, shear resistance, adhesion properties and mechanical stability. Its water-washout and sprayoff resistance are outstanding for applications frequently exposed to water, mud, snow or ice, including ATVs, UTVs, snowmobiles and boat trailers.
Water-Washout and Sprayoff Protection
The superior wet-duty performance of AMSOIL Synthetic Water-Resistant Grease is formulated with extra durable cohesive and adhesive chemistry. It holds together when exposed to water and clings tenaciously to metal surfaces when wet, protecting components during prolonged exposure to standing or pressurized water.
Frequent or prolonged water contact can increase corrosion, resulting in damage to metal surfaces and compromised components. Water-Resistant Grease seals metal surfaces and chemically fights corrosion, making it ideal for applications with extensive exposure to water, mud, snow or ice.
Load-Carrying and Extreme-Pressure Performance
AMSOIL Synthetic Water-Resistant Grease protects components from metal-to-metal contact even under heavy loads. Its extreme-pressure additives protect against sustained or sudden extreme loads for dependable protection against wear.
AMSOIL Synthetic Water-Resistant Grease meets the highest performance standards set by the National Lubrication Grease Institute (NLGI) for wheel bearing applications (GC) and chassis applications (LB). It may be used in automotive wheel bearings, chassis or other applications for which an NLGI #2 GC or LB grease is recommended.
Maintaining a clean work environment is important when equipment greasing is performed. Wipe grease fittings clean prior to injecting grease to prevent contaminant ingestion. Maintain bearing housings one-third to one-half full of grease. Do not over-grease, as excessive heat buildup can result. Supplement standard grease maintenance by cleaning and packing housings with fresh grease on an established maintenance schedule.
AMSOIL PRODUCT AVAILABILITY
AMSOIL Synthetic Water-Resistant Grease is available in 3-oz. cartridges, 14-oz. cartridges, 35-lb. lugs and 120-lb. kegs.
AMSOIL Synthetic Water-Resistant Grease is compatible with many other types of greases. However, it is recommended that, when changing greases, the equipment be cleaned of the old grease when possible or flushed with a liberal amount of Water-Resistant Grease while the mechanism is in operation. Closely monitor the system for any inconsistencies. Grease compatibility questions should be referred to your AMSOIL representative or AMSOIL INC.
