Shell is at the forefront of grease innovation and has a strong record of pioneering and rigorously testing new grease technologies for aviation applications. To protect components, a grease needs to maintain its mechanical stability to stay where it is needed. To lubricate effectively, a greases base oil needs to be released from the thickener in a slow, controlled manner. If the oil separation is too fast, the grease may become too hard to provide adequate protection.
If the separation is too slow, the grease may fail to lubricate efficiently and allow excessive component wear. AeroShell Grease 6 is a general-purpose airframe grease that can be used with anti-friction bearings, gear boxes and plain bearings. ASG6 has good water resistance and low noise capability.
Use in anti-friction bearings, gearboxes and plain bearings
