Fifth Wheel Grease can prevent fretting
May 1, 2003 12:00 PM
Castrol's Fifth Wheel Grease is designed for fifthwheel applications where stay-in-place performance is critical under all weather and application conditions.
Truckers and maintenance personnel can use these convenient tubes for one-time application or as needed between scheduled maintenance services. This packaging also prevents messy and wasteful greasing.
Fifthwheels typically experience extreme fretting, which is the removal of finely divided metal particles from rubbing surfaces due to oscillation, sliding, or vibration. Fifth Wheel Grease's graphite/moly formulation and high percent of tackifiers give it an affinity for metal surfaces. It also provides protection for extended fifthwheel life.
Fifth Wheel Grease has 10 times better adhesive properties than greases typically used for these applications. Proof of this is its performance in the ASTM D 4049 Wash Spray Off Test where it achieves a less than 1% spray-off rating.
This grease comes in kegs, pails, and eight-ounce squeeze tubes sold in cases of 25. For complete details, contact Castrol, 9300 Pulaski Hwy, Baltimore MD 21220.
