Castrol® Fifth Wheel Grease
|Castrol® Fifth Wheel Grease is designed to provide protection and extend the life of fifth wheel plates. Fifth wheels, which typically experience extreme fretting or the removal of finely divided metal particles from rubbing surfaces, require a grease that stays in place under all weather and operating conditions. Castrol Fifth Wheel Grease meets this challenge head on.||
Bottom–line SavingsCastrol Fifth Wheel Grease not only adheres to metal surfaces better than typical greases, it is more economical to use. It takes approximately 8 ounces or a half of a pound of grease to properly lubricate a fifth wheel. Many fifth wheels are consistently over–greased which leads to product waste and environmental repercussions. Castrol Fifth Wheel Grease, in the convenient 8–ounce squeeze tube, allows maintenance personnel to apply just the right amount of grease to the fifth wheel. Over time, users find they are spending less on grease because there is little wasted product. Combine these savings with its excellent stay–in–place properties, which can reduce the frequency of lubrication required, and Castrol Fifth Wheel Grease can significantly reduce the cost to grease an operating unit. Increased wear protection and longer component life also contribute savings to a fleet's bottom line.
Castrol Fifth Wheel Grease is formulated with lubricating solids—such as graphite/moly—and has a high percentage of tackifiers, which help it adhere to metal surfaces and create a protective barrier against wear. In the rigorous ASTM D–4049 Water Sprayoff test, over 99 percent of Castrol Fifth Wheel Grease remained in place by the end of the test versus 50 percent with a typical NLGI #2 lithium complex grease. Castrol Fifth Wheel Grease has up to 50 times greater adhesive properties than products typically used to lubricate fifth wheel plates. Castrol Fifth Wheel Grease's exceptional adhesion guards against fretting and other types of metal–to–metal wear, ultimately extending the life of the fifth wheel.
