Delo® Starplex® EP is a premium, multi-purpose EP automotive wheel bearing and chassis grease containing an ISO 220 mineral base oil, a lithium complex thickener, EP additives, rust and oxidation inhibitors and tackiness additives. It is dark red in colour. Delo Starplex EP has a very high dropping point, which enables effective lubrication at temperatures beyond those possible for conventional lithium soap greases.
Extended service life at elevated temperatures required frequent lubrication to prevent oxidative degradation of the mineral base occurring. Delo Starplex EP is not recommended for constant-velocity joints of front wheel drive vehicles. Operating temperature : –35°C to 140°C, with temperature peaks up to 180°C.

Highway and off-highway applications
General industrial greasing
1. Saves Maintenance Costs
The effective EP additive helps protect against bearing wear under severe conditions and shock loading. Rust and corrosion inhibitors help protect metal surfaces, even in conditions of severe water exposure.
2. Minimizes Downtime
High dropping point minimizes leakage from bearings at elevated temperatures and oxidation resistance ensures long grease life. Natural water resistance of the lithium complex thickener, combined with the additional tackiness additive, prevents water washout.
3. Minimizes Inventory Costs
Multi-purpose capability allows use in a wide range of automotive and industrial applications, reducing the number of different greases required and eliminating product misapplication.
