AVSpare provides greases in order to cover a variety of applications and extreme temperature conditions. Consult your AVSpare dealer for part numbers and for available sizes of containers.

Note: Some greases may not be used with other greases. When a commercial grease is used, ensure that the grease is compatible with the grease that is currently used in the system. If the commercial grease is not compatible, the system must be purged. If any questions arise concerning the compatibility of a grease, consult the supplier.

Multipurpose Greases

Multipurpose Lithium Complex Grease (MPGL)

Multipurpose Lithium Complex Grease (MPGL) is a general purpose lithium complex grease for medium-duty applications. This product has good characteristics at high temperatures such as a dropping point of 260 °C (500 °F). MPGL contains unleaded extreme pressure additives, antiwear inhibitors, and corrosion inhibitors that provide extra protection in the following applications:

  • Construction

  • Agricultural

  • Automotive

MPGL meets the requirements for extended service intervals of automotive chassis points. MPGL also meets the requirements for extended service intervals of wheel bearings with disc brakes in automobiles, in vans and in light trucks. This product meets the NLGI certification of "GC-LB". MPGL is also available in a NLGI No. 2 grade. Normal operating temperatures for this product are −28 to 149 °C (−18 to 300 °F). This product is also available as a white lithium complex grease.

Multipurpose Lithium Complex Grease with Molybdenum (MPGM)

Multipurpose Lithium Complex Grease with Molybdenum (MPGM) is a general purpose lithium complex grease that is used for light-duty applications and for medium-duty applications. The MPGM is available in the following grades: NLGI No. 2 grade and NLGI No. 0 grade. The MPGM is strengthened with a molybdenum disulfide and a polymer for extra lubrication and protection. MPGM contains unleaded additives. MPGM also contains antiwear inhibitors, rust inhibitors, and corrosion inhibitors that are for protection and lubrication in many environments. The MPGM is formulated with a base fluid that has high viscosity.

The MPGM has the following features:

  • Increased protection against water washout

  • Increased retention

  • Resistance to heavy loads

This product is recommended for heavily loaded pin joints and for journal bearings. This product meets the certification of "GC-LB". Normal operating temperatures for this product are −28 to 149 °C (−18 to 300 °F) for the NLGI No. 0 grade. Normal operating temperatures for this product are −18 to 149 °C (0 to 300 °F) for the NLGI No. 2 grade.

Note: If MPGM is not available, use a multipurpose type grease which contains three to five percent molybdenum.

Special Purpose Grease (SPG)

Bearing Lubricant (SPG)

Bearing Lubricant (SPG) is available in a NLGI No. 2 grade with a polyurea thickener. This grease is recommended for high temperature antifriction bearings in the following applications: electric starting motors, alternators, fan drives and generators. The Bearing Lubricant (SPG) has an effective operating range of −29 to 177 °C (−20 to 350 °F).

Water and Temperature Resistant Grease (WTR)

The Water and Temperature Resistant Grease is designed for use whenever the following conditions are a concern: water washout, severe corrosion and high operating temperatures. The Water and Temperature Resistant Grease provides extreme pressure protection, antiwear protection, rust protection and corrosion protection. The Water and Temperature Resistant Grease is an environmentally friendly grease which does not contain the following materials: antimony, sulfur, barium, zinc, lead and phosphorous materials. The Water and Temperature Resistant Grease has excellent shear stability. Water and Temperature Resistant Grease can also resist breakdown in the presence of water. The Water and Temperature Resistant Grease works well in the following applications:

  • Construction

  • Agricultural

  • Automotive

  • Industrial

  • Marine

This product meets the NLGI certification of "GC-LB". Normal operating temperatures for this product are −40 to 204°C (−40 to 400°F).

AVSpare Premium Grease (CPG)

Desert Gold (CPG)

Desert Gold is a heavy-duty, premium synthetic grease that is developed for the most extreme operating environments. This grease is formulated with the following characteristics: high viscosity synthetic base fluid, polymers, molybdenum disulfide, high viscosity index and high dropping point.

Desert Gold will protect equipment against heavy shock loads. Desert Gold protects against corrosion in extreme heat, in moist conditions, or in dusty conditions. This product has excellent characteristics of adhesion and of stability. Desert Gold provides longer protection than other greases. Desert Gold is an environmentally friendly grease which does not contain the following materials: antimony, sulfur, barium, zinc, lead and phosphorous materials. Normal operating temperatures are −6 to 230 °C (21 to 450 °F). Desert Gold can operate at higher temperatures for short time periods. Desert Gold has additional extreme pressure protection for highly loaded pin joints.

Arctic Platinum (CPG)

Arctic Platinum is a super-premium extreme pressure lubricating grease that is developed for lubrication in temperatures that are below zero to moderate operating temperatures. Arctic Platinum is available in grades 000, 00, 0, 1, and 2. These grades ensure pumpability in central lube systems in a variety of ambient temperatures from −60 to 18 °C (−76 to 65 °F). Arctic Platinum has a high dropping point. Arctic Platinum contains a five percent concentrate of molybdenum disulfide for protection against extra heavy loads. Arctic Platinum provides excellent corrosion protection and rust protection. Arctic Platinum is an environmentally friendly grease which does not contain the following materials: antimony, sulfur, barium, zinc and phosphorous.

Arctic Platinum is designed for long life lubrication of the following components: horizontal pivot bearings, lower link bearings, steering cylinders, kingbolt bearings, upper hitch link bearings and ejector carrier roller bearings. This grease is extra tacky for retention on excavator carbody bearings. Arctic Platinum has additional extreme pressure protection for highly loaded pin joints.
