Irving’s premium grease was developed to meet the growing demands or higher quality multipurpose grease. Its complex thickener gives a wide range of performance benefits over a variety of applications.


Grease can be considered as a suspension of oil in a matrix. The matrix can be formed in oil by the reaction of an acid and a base, producing what is called soap. “Complex” grease is made when several different ingredients are used. Some grease use other means such as clay or polymer gels to thicken the oil and are called non-soap greases. Greases offer advantages over oils as lubricants. They are used where oils cannot be held in place, for example rolling bearings on a vertical shaft, or pin-bushings. The ability of a grease to act as a seal also simplifies bearing housing design. On the other hand, the presence of the thickener presents limitations to the use of any grease since the matrix can dissolve if water is present, or melt at high temperatures do break down under mechanical stress.


Irving LUBEX EP is remarkable in its ability to overcome most of the traditional weaknesses of greases. It has excellent mechanical stability under repeated stress and shows little tendency to separate. It has good resistance to water, making it a good choice where water contamination is unavoidable. The grease is able to give top-level protection from extreme pressure (EP) load wear and damage, as well as protection from corrosion and rust. It has a very high dropping point and excellent resistance to oxidation, making LUBEX EP a good choice for high temperature (up to 200C/392F continuous) applications.


LUBEX EP is available in standard NLGI grades. Grades are primarily used to indicate the pump-ability of the grease. Grade 0 is suitable for winter conditions and instances when the grease has to be pumped through long supply lines or to the spray nozzles of a centralized lubrication system. Grade 1 should be used for hand application in winter outdoor conditions. Grade 2 is used for all general indoor and summer outdoor needs. Grade 3 is best suited for applications where the grease also acts as a seal, such as bushings and sleeves, rolling bearings and vertical shafts.

 

 

Features:

  • Available in 4 NLGI grades
  • High Drop Point
  • Dyed green for easy identification

 

Benefits:

  • Multipurpose – reduces need for multiple greases
  • Extreme pressure protection
  • Good water resistance
  • Superior load and wear protection

commercial users where a typical EP grease is not enough. The

LUBEX EP SPECIAL is a high performance grease developed
to meet the needs of today’s demanding industrial and heavy
commercial users where a typical EP grease is not enough. The
Lithium complex thickener gives a wider range of performance
benefits over a wider range of applications. Irving LUBEX EP
SPECIAL is remarkable in its ability to overcome most of the
traditional weaknesses of other grease.

LUBEX EP SPECIAL has excellent mechanical stability under
repeated mechanical stress with low separation tendency. The
high dropping point makes it ideal where heat can excessively
thin other greases. Extreme pressure additives offers
outstanding wear protection under the most severe shock
loading. A unique rust and corrosion inhibitors ensure longevity
of equipment life.

The high quality base oil and Lithium complex thickener is
enhanced with a polymer to improve adhesion tendency and
water washout resistance, making it the ideal choice where
water contamination is unavoidable.

LUBEX SPECIAL EP is available in NLGI* Grade 2. It is ideal
for mobile applications such as forestry, mining, and
construction as well as industrial applications including saw mills
and paper manufacturing.

Lubex MP - General Purpose Grease

 LUBEX MP grease was developed to be a high quality general
purpose grease for bearing applications in commercial and consumer
applications. The high quality lithium thickener provides a wide range

 LUBEX MP grease was developed to be a high quality general
purpose grease for bearing applications in commercial and consumer
applications. The high quality lithium thickener provides a wide range
of performance benefits over a variety of non-disc brake wheel bearing
applications.

Irving LUBEX MP is versatile making it ideal for applications in
forestry, construction, agricultural, trucking, and automotive
applications including:

• Plain & Antifriction Bearings
• Chasis Lubrication
• General Machinery Lubrication
• Crushers, Shakers, & Screens
• Non-disc Brake Wheel Bearings
• Conveyers, Winches, & Presses

LUBEX MP is enhanced with a unique additive package to enhance
its’ extreme pressure (EP) protection in high load conditions. The rust
and oxidation inhibitors also reduce the corrosion damage caused by
repeated moisture and water contamination. With an effective
operating range of -5°C to 145°C, the high quality base oil is able to
maintain consistency day in and day out throughout the year.


LUBEX MP meets and exceeds several industry requirements
including NLGI LB, Mack GC-G, Chrysler MS-3701, and Cincinnati
Machine P-64 specifications

LUBEX MP is available in 2 standard NLGI* grades. Grades are
primarily used to indicate the pumpability of the grease. Grade 1
should be used for hand application in winter-outdoor conditions.
Grade 2 is used for all general indoor and summer-outdoor needs.
