AeroShell Grease 5 is a high temperature grease composed of a mineral oil thickened with Microgel®, possessing good load-carrying ability. It is inhibited against oxidation and corrosion and has excellent resistance to water.
The useful operating temperature range is –23°C to +177°C.
AeroShell Grease 5 is particularly effective for use as a wheel bearing grease, especially when landing speeds are high, and is suitable for the lubrication of aircraft and engine accessories operating at high speeds and at relatively high temperatures, e.g. magnetos, generators and starters. For the lubrication of rolling bearings which are required to start at temperatures aslow as –23°C an adequate period should be allowed for the grease to channel.
