Shield Greases are top quality Lithium-based soap greases manufactured using premium quality virgin base oil with anti-oxidant and anti-rust additives.
Shield produces the following type of Lithium greases:
- Multi-purpose Greases – regular and high-temperature complex
- Extreme Pressure Greases – regular and high-temperature complex
- Wire Rope Greases
Greases based on lithium soap possess many improved properties compared to the other alkali metal soaps. They have better water resistance properties compared to sodium soap greases, better high-temperature properties compared to calcium soap greases, and excellent mechanical properties (both resistance to shearing and good ability to be pumped).
Lithium Complex Greases have many of the properties of regular lithium soap greases and have higher dropping points, allowing the greases to be used at higher temperatures.
