Choosing the right grease
The correct choice of grease is a critical feature in cost effective lubrication.
Here is a set of useful recommendations for common grease applications to
guide your choice.
It is preferable to grease more frequently rather than rely on so-called factory-
filled long or extended life greases. Use a No. 2 lithium or lithium complex
grease such a CASTROL EPL2, APX T, LMM
or SBX 2 GREASE.
permit extended service intervals should they be required.
The wide use of disc brakes calls for greases with greater resistance to bleed,
particularly in heavier vehicles and under racing conditions. For such
applications we recommend CASTROL HTB GREASE GREASE
based) or CASTROL APX T GREASE
(Lithium complex) which can be used
at working temperatures above 1750C.
For frequency of repacking wheel bearings, refer to the motor manufacturer's
recommendations. Note that the style of driving, wheel balance and different
road surfaces can have a significant effect on the life of the grease. Do not
mix greases (see page 2).
The design of these vary, as does the lubricant and method of application.
We recommend CASTROL EPL2
or APX T GREASE
(Lithium Complex) for

is generally applicable to all types, EXCEPT those
with rubber bushes and those which do not require lubrication. Where
shackles are subjected to severe vibration such as rough roads, use CASTROL SBX2
Follow manufacturer recommendations. If the steering box is grease
lubricated use CASTROL EPL0
or SL HEAVY GREASE.
Starters, Generators and Distributors
Follow manufacturer recommendations as bearings are often packed for life with
a specialty grease. If repacking is required we recommend CASTROL EPL2
or APX T GREASE.
Brakes and Clutch Hydraulic Mechanisms
These systems generally employ rubber washers and o-rings. As even small
quantities of mineral oil on rubber can cause deterioration, do not use a
conventional mineral oil based grease. If metal components periodically in
contact with fluid require a lubricant, use only a grease specially designed for
these components, such as CASTROL GRR (B) GREASE.
We recommend CASTROL MARINE GREASE
or CASTROL AP3 GREASE
boat trailer bearings. Owners must recognise that the entry of water into
bearings causes rust and wear. We recommend cleaning and packing of
bearings at least every 6 months.
NO GREASE CAN COMPENSATE FOR INADEQUATE MAINTENANCE.
High Impact Surfaces
The pivot pins used, for example on the bucket control arms of front end loaders
are subject to high shock load conditions. To prevent excessive wear we
recommend CASTROL SBX2
or BMX2 GREASE.
Constant Velocity Joints
Constant velocity joints are usually used on front wheel drive cars, some 4 wheel
drives and rear wheel drive cars with independent rear suspension. Our prime
recommendation for constant velocity joints is CASTROL SBX2, CASTROL
BMX2, CASTROL LMM
and AGRI BORTAX
may also be used. Virtually all
manufacturers recommend grease containing solid lubricants CASTROL SBX 2
offers the best combination of adhesiveness, base oil viscosity, melting point,
extreme pressure and antiwear additives.
When repacking bearings, completely remove all old grease and wash the bearings in solvent and air dry before applying a new grease. NEVER mix grease of different types as they can react physically, lose their structure and not lubricate effectively.
