Greases/Open Gear Lubricants
Molytex® EP 2

Molytex® EP 2 is a high performance extreme pressure multi-purpose lithium grease, formulated with a sheer stable lithium- 12-hydroxy-stearate soap. Molytex EP 2 contains solid lubricant MoS₂ to contribute to good lubricity, high load carrying capability and assist seizure prevention under high load conditions. It is also formulated to help protect against corrosion, oxidation, softening in service, and offer robust assistance to water washout. Molytex EP 2 increases the life of propeller shafts by up to 30%, when compared with a standard lithium EP grease and is especially developed for use in constant-velocity joints. Molytex EP 2 has been successfully used in constant velocity joints (CV-joints) in front wheel drive automobiles, universal joints (U-joints) and for chassis lubrication. The presence of Moly helps provide added shock protection. It is formulated to perform well in high load conditions and temperature extremes and help provide resistance to rust and water washout.

Recommended Uses

Molytex EP 2 is a multi-purpose grease suitable for wide range of applications. It can be applied to lubrication points found on dozers, scrapers, earthmovers, cranes, shovels, rollers, combines and cotton pickers. These lubrication points include most types of antifriction bearing arrangements from plain sleeve-types, to rolling element bearings, as well as bushings and other sliding surface or pivot points. Working Temperature: –25°C up to 120°C with re-lubrication up to 140°C.

Molytex® EP 2 Is Recommended For Use In:

DIN 51502 KPF2K-20

ISO 6743-9 L-XCCEB 2

Performance Benefits

1. Protects Metal Surfaces

Effective EP additive and molybdenum disulfide solid film lubricant protect against component wear under high load conditions and/or shock loading. Rust and corrosion inhibitors protect metal surfaces in wet operating conditions. Even if insufficient grease is used, some molybdenum disulfide tends to stay in place and protect metal surfaces.

2. Enhances Service Life

Excellent oxidation resistance ensures enhanced grease service life.

3. Ease of Application

NLGI 2 grade provide suitable flow properties for grease pump application systems.

4. Reduces Complexity

Multipurpose capability allows use in a wide range of heavy-duty automotive and industrial applications, reducing the number of different greases required and eliminating product misapplication.
