Water Resistant Grease: RPL-Trident88

Product Description:

RPL-Trident88 is a long-lasting water resistant grease manufactured using a 100% synthetic base oil and thickened with aluminum complex. It has a low coefficient of friction, a high viscosity index and a high dropping point. It provides a high level of performance and will typically outlast conventional grease by a factor of at least three times depending on the application.

RPL-Trident88 has very low pour points and superior thermal and oxidation stability. It has a very wide operating temperature range and maintains viscosity at changing operating speeds and temperatures. It does not contain components found in mineral oils that have a tendency to carbonize at high temperatures or thicken and gel at low temperatures. It is pumpable, even to temperatures as low as -40C.

RPL-Trident-88 is waterproof. It repels water and acts as seal for bearings exposed to wet conditions. A good measure of its waterproof ability is the Water Washout Test (ASTM D-1264). When tested using this method, RPL-Trident88 exhibits less than 1.0% weight loss. The aluminum complex thickener contains fibers which contribute to the unusually stable structure. The product does not soften or run-out in the presence of water and other liquids, even when subjected to prolonged and severe working conditions. As it approaches the top end of its operating temperature range, it will soften but does not separate and will reconstitute to its original consistency once it cools down.

This particular grease is ideally suited for a wide range of applications requiring a superior water resistant grease including bearings, cams, slides, gears, pumps, freezers, chillers, refrigeration units, and outdoor equipment operating under difficult and often-changing environmental conditions.

Did you know?

Most greases will offer at least some basic degree of water protection.

However, it takes a careful combination of base fluids and additives to formulate a product that not only will protect an application, but also provide continuous and effective lubrication under constant  exposure without breaking down.
