What we mean by aviation greases

Aviation greases are lubricants, with a thickening agent dispersed within them. They’re used on various aircraft components to improve performance.
Different greases can be used in particular aircraft and scenarios. For example, aviation greases can be used for such purposes as corrosion inhibition, lubricating load carrying components and lubricating components operating under extreme temperatures. The AeroShell range contains a variety of aviation greases that are multi-functional.

  • AeroShell Grease 22

    AeroShell Grease 22

    Versatile Multipurpose Grease

    Corrosion inhibited and fortified against oxidation, it has excellent anti-wear properties, load-carrying capacity and water resistance, plus a wide useful temperature range of -54°C to +177°C. Recommended for aircraft wheel bearings, engine accessories and airframe lubrication and for anti-friction bearings operating at high speeds and at high or low temperatures.

  • AeroShell Grease 33

    AeroShell Grease 33

    Universal Airframe Grease

    Developed with the purpose of satisfying almost all airframe lubrication requirements with a single grease. Its enhanced corrosion resistance and load-carrying capacity reduces wear and tear and can lead to extension of re-greasing intervals and reduction in maintenance costs. Replacing several greases with a single grease avoids the risk of misapplication and, also, reduces stock inventory, again providing cost savings. Useful temperature range is -73°C to +121°C.

  • AeroShell Grease 58

    AeroShell Grease 58

    Advanced Wheel Bearing Grease

    AeroShell Grease 58 (ASG58) is an advanced wheel bearing grease. It follows the industry drive for lithium complex thickened grease. ASG58 is built on proven AeroShell Grease 33 technology, exceeding the demanding specification of SAE AMS 3058. It has superior mechanical stability, water washout resistance and corrosion protection. ASG58 performs well in the EMCOR test against salt water and modern day runway de-icing fluid.

  • AeroShell Grease 64

    AeroShell Grease 64

    Extreme Pressure Airframe Grease

    AeroShell Grease 64 (formerly AeroShell 33MS) is an EP airframe grease based on the proven lithium thickener technology of AeroShell Grease 33. It can help to extend component life through its exceptional load-carrying and EP properties from fortification using 5% molybdenum disulphide and its excellent wear and corrosion protection. It also helps to reduce the risk of product misapplication by being fully compatible with AeroShell Grease 33. Together, these greases are perfect partners, thereby helping to reduce costs by protecting over 98% of the grease application points on a typical airliner. AeroShell Grease 64 is fully approved to MIL-G-21164D.
