Castrol SHL 00 is a synthetic, semi–fluid NLGI 00 grease that combines the stay–put power of a grease with the consistency of a gear lubricant. As a result, Castrol SHL 00 virtually eliminates fluid leakage from wheel seals, hubs and axles, which can be a serious environmental and safety hazard for over–the–road fleets and can increase maintenance costs. Castrol SHL 00's synthetic base stock gives it excellent low temperature mobility and high temperature stability. NLGI 00 lubricants are recommended by The Maintenance Council in their Recommended Procedures for Wheel End Lubrication (RP 631). Castrol SHL 00 can also be used in quarry, industrial, mining and construction applications where a semi–fluid grease is recommended
Because of Castrol SHL 00's incredible staying power, maintenance managers can safely extend lubricant life and service intervals. Its high and low temperature performance characteristics work to keep the lubricant in service longer, protecting equipment during extreme temperature conditions.
Castrol SHL 00 employs an additive package that promotes long bearing life and guards against wear, rust and corrosion. It is fortified with anti–wear and extreme pressure agents that contribute to extended bearing life.
