HOUSTON, Tex. — Shell Lubricants has introduced Shell Retinax Fifth Wheel Grease in a one-time, easy-to-use squeeze tube, to facilitate quick use and the proper amount.
The new heavy-duty calcium grease is formulated with a high level of solid additives for enhanced load carrying capability. With its high solids content and heavy base oil formula, the new Shell Retinax Fifth Wheel Grease provides an effective lubricant film even under the heavy stress and constant sliding contact experienced in fifth wheels.
Even after facing the elements experienced by long stretches of highway driving, Shell Retinax Fifth Wheel Grease retains an effective lubricant film, which provides outstanding load carrying capability, said Dan Arcy, technical marketing manager, for Shell Lubricants.
Shell Retinax Fifth Wheel Grease is suitable for the lubrication of all fifth wheel top plates as it offers excellent adhesive properties while remaining very resistant to water. This new grease holds up to the washout and spray-off encountered during long hauls of wet highway driving. In addition, the durable Shell Retinax Fifth Wheel Grease also resists flaking.
