Silver Max EP Grease by housework


									Silver Max EP Grease

Nemco Silver Max LCM EP Grease is a premium quality, lithium complex grease
containing 3% molybdenum disulfide. The addition of extreme pressure and other additives
significantly enhances its performance properties. Silver Max LCM EP Grease is available
in NLGI grade No. 1 and 2. It has a high dropping point (260° C) and excellent mechanical
stability as indicated by its resistance to change in consistency. It is non-corrosive and has a
high resistance to water washout and oxidation.

The technical fine grade of molybdenum disulfide used in the manufacture of this grease
has an extremely low particle size (96% of the particles of this grade are under 2 microns in
size), which eliminates the abrasiveness associated with lower quality grades of moly


Nemco Silver Max LCM EP Grease is recommended for equipment subjected to heavy
shock loading, particularly on slow oscillating or reciprocating bearings, and for applications
designed for extended intervals between lubrication. Many on- and off-highway equipment
manufacturers recommend grease fortified with molybdenum disulfide. Such grease must
be non-abrasive and non-corrosive, and should have a high resistance to oxidation and the
washing action of water. Ideal grease for such applications should have an inherently high
mechanical stability, in order to retain its lubricating ability over long periods of heavy use.


Nemco Silver Max LCM EP Grease is especially recommended for automotive and
industrial applications involving heavy shock load conditions.

Nemco Silver Max LCM EP Grease applications include:

  - Automotive chassis lubrication including shackle pins and ball joints
  - Construction and mining equipment
  - Tractor-truck fifth wheel assemblies
  - Anti-friction wheel bearings
  - Automotive universal joints
  - General industrial applications
  - Farm and off-highway equipment
