Understanding Aluminium Complex grease

Aluminum complex grease is widely used in food and beverage processing plants, a food grade grease made with food grade white mineral oil or synthetic hydrocarbon. Aluminum complex greases are applicable in steel mills and mining applications because of their superior water resistance properties and higher temperature thickener.

what is a grease

Grease is a solid or semisolid lubricant formed as a dispersion of thickening agents in a liquid lubricant. Grease generally consists of a soap emulsified with mineral or vegetable oil. The lubricating fluid is usually the majority component in the grease formulation. The additives are typically present in relatively low concentrations, and are added to the grease to provide enhancement in one of multiple performance areas. The thickener is what sets grease apart from liquid lubricants. This component gives the grease the property of consistency, making the product semi-solid rather than liquid. Many different chemical compounds can be used to thicken grease. 

Benefits and Value of Aluminium complex grease

  • High maximum operating temperature
  • Very good water resistance
  • Good corrosion protection
  • H1 food grade
  • Fair low-temperature pumpability
  • Age hardening
