Equipment corrosion from exposure to high humidity and salt spray can be fought with grease featuring enhanced corrosion protection.
CorrLube VpCI Lithium EP Grease, powered by Nano-VpCI, is a solution in many cases where NLGI grade 2 grease is needed. It is specifically formulated with superior corrosion inhibiting properties against saltwater, brine, H2S, HCl and other corrosive agents.
Typical applications include lubricating sleeves, ball and roller bearings; bushings; fans; pulley bearings; sliding high-friction areas; and generator end bearings.
CorrLube VpCI Lithium EP Grease is suitable for operating, layup, or intermittently operating conditions. There is no need to switch from one grease to another when transitioning equipment from operation to layup and vice versa.
For applications that require thicker grease, EcoLine Biobased Grease, powered by NANO VpCI, is a multi-purpose NLGI grade 3 grease with superior corrosion protection properties. A side benefit for users and the environment is that it contains 86% USDA certified biobased content.
It is an excellent alternative to traditional petroleum-based greases where extra corrosion protection is needed.
In addition to protecting metals through direct contact, EcoLine Biobased Grease also protects metals in surrounding hard-to-reach cavities through vapor-phase corrosion inhibiting action.
EcoLine Biobased Grease is compatible with yellow metals and can be used to protect lubricating sleeves; ball and roller bearings; vehicle/equipment chassis; and enclosed hard-to-reach cavities.
