Lubricating greases are used in a variety of applications to reduce friction and wear between moving parts. Some examples of the use of different types of greases are: 

  • Mineral oil based greases: these are used in a wide range of applications including automotive, general engineering, electric motors, bearings, gearboxes, pumps and valves..
  • Synthetic greases: Due to their improved performance characteristics, synthetic greases are often used in demanding applications such as high-speed bearings, high-temperature applications, extreme cold conditions or under high pressure. They are used in the aerospace and automotive industries, in high-performance engines, precision equipment and high-performance machinery.   
  • Lithium-based greases: These are versatile and are used in a wide range of applications including automotive, general engineering, bearings, joints, agricultural machinery, electrical equipment and domestic appliances.
  • Aluminum complex greases: Due to their improved water resistance, they are often used in applications where water contact is unavoidable, such as in the food industry, paper manufacturing, offshore equipment, agricultural and construction machinery, marine applications and in water and moisture environments.  


Here are some important aspects:

  • Application conditions: Consider the specific conditions under which the grease will be used. This includes factors such as temperature, pressure, speed, load and environment (e.g. humid, corrosive). The selected grease should be able to withstand the operating conditions. 
  • Lubrication performance: Ensure that the grease provides the required lubrication performance to reduce friction and wear. It should provide sufficient lubrication to ensure component protection.
  • Compatibility: Check the compatibility of the grease with the materials it comes into contact with. For example, some greases can attack rubber or certain plastics. It is important to ensure that the selected grease is compatible with the materials used. 
  • Service life and maintenance intervals: Consider the desired service life of the grease and the required maintenance intervals. Some greases offer a longer service life and require less frequent replacement, while others require regular relubrication or more frequent grease replacement.
  • Manufacturer's specifications: Always follow the recommendations and specifications of the machine manufacturer or lubricant supplier. Manufacturers may have specific grease requirements to ensure optimum performance of their machines or components. 
  • Additives and properties: Different greases contain different additives that can provide specific properties, such as improved oxidation resistance, EP (extreme pressure) properties, corrosion protection or water resistance. Make sure that the selected grease has the desired properties for the application. 
  • Standards and certifications: Standards and certifications may play a role in certain applications or industries. Check whether the selected grease complies with the required standards.
