Shell Rotella® HD Grease Premium Heavy-Duty Grease

March, 2019

Rotella® HD Grease is a premium multi-purpose grease for on and off-road vehicle applications with the versatility for industrial equipment use. It contains our latest performance additives to provide excellent high temperature oxidation performance, corrosion resistance and extreme pressure and anti-wear protection. Shell Rotella HD Grease is especially suitable for bearings operating at high temperature and under load such as disk brake equipped wheel bearings.

Performance, Features & Benefits 

•Excellent mechanical stability over long periods of severe vibration

•Enhanced extreme-pressure properties

•Excellent load-carrying performance

•Provides lasting protection even in the presence of water contamination

•Provides shear stability in high speed wheel bearings

•Long operational life at high temperatures

•Helps prevent rust and corrosion

Applications:

•Wheel bearing and general chassis lubrication in on and off-road vehicles and general equipment 

•All around lubrication for bearings and pivot points on equipment

•General farm, construction, and lawn equipment 

•Automotive wheel bearings

Specifications, Approvals:

•ASTM D4950 GC-LB

Shell Rotella® SD Grease

Special Duty Moly Grease

Shell Rotella® SD Grease is a high-performance, high temperature grease for vehicle and equipment lubrication. Formulated with moly solid lubricant (molybdenum disulfide), Shell Rotella SD Grease is designed for lubrication of demanding applications in vehicles and equipment that are subjected to high shock loads where rapid starts and stops may occur, impacting such things as chassis points, sliding pins, trailer hitches, and axle splines.

Performance, Features & Benefits

•High base oil viscosity to provide excellent load carrying performance

•Excellent mechanical stability even when continuously exposed to weather

•Performance consistency is retained over long periods, even in conditions of severe vibration

•Excellent load-carrying performance enhanced by the presence of solids

Applications:

•Tractors and tractor attachments

•Construction equipment

•Industrial equipment

•Power take-off linkages

•Trailers and hitches

Specifications, Approvals

•NLGI No. 2

Shell Rotella® MP Grease

Multi-Purpose Lithium Grease

Shell Rotella® MP Grease is designed for multipurpose grease lubrication of on and off-road vehicles and equipment for general chassis, springs, pivot points, low speed bearings (not disk brake wheel bearings), and equipment such as mowers, trailers, lifts, and loader buckets.

Shell Rotella MP Grease is a high quality, multipurpose, extreme-pressure grease based on a blend of high viscosity index mineral oils and a lithium hydroxystreate soap thickener that contains extreme-pressure and other additives to enhance performance in a wide range of applications.

Performance, Features & Benefits

•Shell Rotella MP Grease contains special extreme pressure additives that enable it to withstand heavy shock loads without failure of the lubricant film

•Improved mechanical stability in vibrating environments where poor mechanical stability can lead to grease softening with subsequent loss of lubrication performance and leakage

•Oxidation stability - specially selected base oil components have excellent oxidation resistance the consistency will not alter in storage and can withstand high operating temperatures without hardening or forming deposits

•Reliably protects bearing surfaces against corrosion, even when a high amount of water is present

•Resistance to water wash-out

Applications:

•Vehicle chassis and general equipment lubrication including garage and workshop equipment, trailers, hitches, and other moving parts

Specifications, Approvals:

•NLGI LB, No. 2

Shell Rotella® ET Grease

Extreme Temperature, Tacky Grease

Shell Rotella® ET Grease is designed for the lubrication of most on and off-road vehicles and equipment. It is a lithium complex grease based on high viscosity mineral oils and polymers for improved adhesion and retention on exposed surfaces such as fifth-wheel plate pivots, wheel bearings, springs, trailers, open pivot joints and weather exposed equipment. The grease is extremely tacky, water resistant, and suitable for high temperatures. Shell Rotella ET Grease contains antioxidants, extreme pressure and wear preventive additives, and rust inhibitors for long service life and corrosion protection. 

Performance, Features & Benefits:

•Wear protection in high temperature and exposed conditions

•Corrosion protection

•Resistance to water wash out and wash off

•Bearing lubrication including wheel bearings

•General chassis lubrication of vehicles

•Use in industrial, farm, construction, and yard equipment 

Applications

•Shell Rotella ET Grease is designed for the lubrication of most on and off-road vehicles and equipment

•General chassis lubrication of vehicles

•Industrial, farm, construction, and yard equipment

Specifications, Approvals:

•NLGI No. 1.5
