The same great AMSOIL Synthetic Multi-Purpose
Grease in a convenient spray formulation. Ideal for greasing hard-to-reach
equipment such as hinges, springs and other common applications.
AMSOIL GLC multi-purpose, EP grease is qualified
against the highest grease standards, NLGI GC (wheel bearing)
and LB (chassis), and is designed for multiple use applications.
This grease is composed of synthetic base oils and lithium complex
thickeners that provide the film strength, shear resistance and
mechanical stability required for good grease lubrication. This
combination excels in high and low operating temperature ranges
by providing excellent oxidation stability, high temperature dropping
points, good low temperature torque values and good low temperature
pumping capabilities. GLC Grease is compounded with an effective
oil soluble extreme-pressure additive for heavy loads, plus oxidation
and corrosion inhibitors that impart good oxidation stability
and rust protection.
AMSOILs top performing lithium complex
thickener system provides excellent adhesion properties and water
resistance as identified by ASTM D-1264 water washout test. This
resistance to water means a protective film of lubricant remains
present to protect equipment against wear while the corrosion
inhibitors prevent rust. AMSOIL GLC Grease adheres to metal in
all types of environments and resists squeeze out during operation.
These qualities ensure maximum lubricant protection during harsh
AMSOIL GLC multi-purpose greases is recommended
for many different applications. Its diversity simplifies lubricant
inventories and prevents greasing errors while providing problem-free
operation. AMSOIL GLC Grease reduces repair and maintenance costs.

NLGI #2 (GLC) is the preferred choice for medium
to high ambient temperatures, sleeve type bushings, high shock
loading environments, wet environments. and is the primary choice
for wheel bearings.
The correct consistency grade of AMSOIL GL multi-purpose
greases are recommended for use in heavy and light duty applications
found in manufacturing plants, automotive applications, agricultural
equipment and construction equipment. These include, but are not
limited to, roller bearings, plain bearings, thrust bearings,
gears, electric motors, presses, winches, bushings, wheel bearings.
chassis lubrication, universal joints, ball joints, tie-rod ends,
and steering knuckles. AMSOIL GL greases are suitable for use
up to 350° F. When operating at elevated temperatures, frequent
regreasing may be required.
AMSOIL GL Lithium Complex Greases are compatible
with many other types of greases. However, it is recommended that
when changing greases, the equipment be cleaned of the old grease
when possible or flushed with a liberal amount of the GL grease
while the mechanism is in operation. Closely monitor the system
for any inconsistencies. Grease compatibility questions should
be referred to your AMSOIL representative or AMSOIL Inc.
Maintaining a clean work environment is
important when equipment greasing is performed. Wipe grease fitting
clean prior to injecting grease to prevent contaminant ingestion.
Maintain bearing housings one-third to one-half full of grease.
Do not over-grease, as excessive heat buildup can result. Supplement
standard grease maintenance by periodically cleaning and packing
housings with fresh grease on an established maintenance schedule.
