General Qualities & Characteristics
Gulf Chassis Greases are high adhesive, fibrous, dark-brown, calcium soap greases for general purpose chassis and slow-speed plain bearing lubrication. The use of these greases provides good lubrication at moderate cost in equipment that requires frequent re-lubrication. It also protects against rust.
Recommended as a general chassis lubricant for passenger cars, trucks, buses, farm and construction equipment where a tough, durable film is required. In such applications, the NLGI 0/1 grades are suitable for ambient temperatures ranging from 00 C to 300 C, and the NLGI 2 grade for temperatures above 100 C. In hot and tropical areas, the NLGI 2 grade can be used for chassis lubrication.
The NLGI 1 and 3 grades are recommended for plain bearings under slow-speed operation. The NLGI 2/3 grades are also suitable as a seal grease for slow-speed bearings.
Not recommended for wheel bearings or other rolling element bearings. Gulf Wheel Bearing Grease or Gulfcrown grease is recommended for these applications . Not recommended for constant-velocity joints on front-wheel-drive vehicles.
