ALVANIA* EP
MULTI-PURPOSE GREASES FOR HEAVY AUTOMOTIVE AND INDUSTRIAL APPLICATION (1) "New and improved"
PRODUCT LINE Alvania EP Greases are premium quality, non-lead multi-purpose products based on lithium soap. They were originally conceived and patented by Shell and have continuously been improved over the years. Their multi-purpose nature allows for use in both heavy duty automotive and industrial applications, thus reducing the need for specialty greases in specific applications. Alvania EP Greases are offered in three NLGI grades (O, 1 and 2). APPLICATIONS Alvania EP can be used to lubricate plain, sleeve and rolling bearings in most industrial and marine applications operating in the -50C to 130C temperature range. Heavy duty automotive, farm and resource industry applications include chassis points, universal joints, water pumps, track rollers, clutches and wheel bearings. Alvania EP Artic Moly is specially designed for low temperature central system use down to -50C. Alvania EP MS (Multi-Season) can be used for low temperature grease gun applications. Where application and operating temperatures are expected to exceed 130C, greases such as Darina XL or Albida EP are recommended. For applications where intermittent sliding forces are encountered, such as steering gears, king pins, front suspensions, fifth wheels, guide ways and telescoping booms, an Alvania EP Moly grade is recommended. PERFORMANCE BENEFITS Excellent Load Carrying Ability - Alvania EP contains an extreme pressure additive which imparts excellent load carrying properties -- translating into longer equipment life. Anti-Rust Capability - The anti-rust additives promote excellent rust and corrosion protection in wet conditions. Oxidation Stability - Longer lubricant life due to the oxidation inhibitors in Alvania EP -- which means longer lubrication intervals and less grease usage. Resistance to Water Washout - Providing "stay-in" performance and extended relubrication intervals. Wide Application Temperature Range - There is a grade available for applications from -50C to 135C. APPROVALS Approved by CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency) for industrial food plant use. Avoid food contamination during application and storage.
