K48 Moly Grease
Lithium Moly Black Grease is manufactured from a Lithium soap base and highly refined mineral oil, with added Molybdenum Disulphide to provide protection against seizure in conditions when ordinary greases would fail. Also included in this grease are additives to stop corrosion, rust and oxidation. Additionally this grease shows excellent resistance to severe mechanical working.
K48 is a premium quality multi-purpose grease for use in all anti-friction and plain bearings subjected to high load conditions. The incorporation of Molybdenum Disulphide imparts a high degree of wear protection against load, shock loading and dusty environments. Used extensively for applications throughout industry and the automotive sector.
K48 is specially formulated for use in industrial equipment, cars, vans, trucks and construction plant such as bulldozers, scrapers, loading shovels and dump trucks where it will give superior performance, in all industrial plain and rolling element bearings. It is particularly recommended for constant velocity joints and fifth wheel lubrication. It is particularly effective where movements are small or intermittent and where fretting corrosion is a problem.
As with all greases used for the first time, check compatibility with the grease applied previously and if necessary purge bearings prior to application. Likewise, as a general rule, take care not to over-lubricate and apply the quantity of grease recommended by the bearing manufacturer.
