Shell Rotella grease

Shell Rotella is bringing a portfolio of greases to Canada, in the form of HD, SD, MP and ET formulations.

The HD is a premium heavy-duty grease for wheel bearings and general chassis lubrication for on- and off-road vehicles and general equipment. It is mechanically stable over long periods of severe vibration, and offers enhanced extreme-pressure properties as well as lasting protection in the face of water contamination. It also offers shear stability in high-speed wheel bearings.

A special-duty moly grease, known as the SD, supports applications such as power take-off linkages, trailers and hitches. It’s fomulated with a moly solid lubricant, offering a high viscosity, and mechanical stability even in the face of cold weather.

The ET is an extreme-temperature tacky grease for lubricating industrial, farm, construction and yard equipment. The lithium complex formula offers better retention on exposed surfaces like fifth-wheel plate pivots, wheel bearings, springs, open pivot joints, and equipment exposed to weather.

Rounding out the portfolio is a multi-purpose lithium grease known as MP. It’s for general chassis, springs, pivot points, low-speed bearings, and equipment like mowers, trailers, lifts, and loader buckets. The extreme-pressure grease includes some special additives to help it withstand heavy shock loads. The consistency also won’t change in storage and the grease can withstand high operating temperatures without hardening or forming deposits.
