Shell Naturelle Grease and Wire Rope Lubricant

Lubricants with poor resistance to water wash-off may fail to protect your equipment, which means there is an increased likelihood of additional costs through unplanned maintenance or equipment downtime.

Shell Naturelle S2 Wire Rope Lubricant A is designed for wire ropes, open gears and other deck equipment. It has excellent adhesion properties and is formulated with a selected blend of additives to offer superior extreme-pressure and anticorrosion protection in the most challenging of environments.

Low-cost lubricants can be poor value if they fail to stay where you need them. Shell Naturelle S2 Wire Rope Lubricant A offers high resistance to water wash-off owing to its outstanding adhesion properties. This can help to cut product consumption and labour costs, thereby reducing the cost of keeping your mooring and crane wires protected and working efficiently.

Extreme Pressure and

Specially selected solid lubricants and additives protect components from excessive wear, even under heavy loads.

Excellent Corrosion Protection

Shell Naturelle S2 Wire Rope Lubricant A is formulated to include special anti-corrosion additives to offer enhanced protection from corrosion, even under the influence of seawater. In an SKF EMCOR test for a period of one week, there was no sign of corrosion.

Readily Biodegradable

Shell Naturelle S2 Wire Rope Lubricant A achieves the OECD 301 F requirement of >60% degradation within 28 days and is made from >60% renewable raw materials classed as minimally toxic and non bioaccumulative.

Shell Naturelle S5 Grease

Shell Naturelle S5 Grease V120P 2 is a biodegradable grease for use in rudder bearings; applications such as slow speed plain bearings (slower than 500 rpm) and high-speed ball and roller bearings (up to 2,000 rpm) that require an extreme-pressure grease; and in routine greasing of deck equipment. The grease is based on a lithium hydroxystearate soap thickener and is fortified with extreme-pressure, anti-oxidant, anti-wear and anti-rust additives.

1 Fully biodegradable to the latest CEC-L-33-A-93 standard

2 Provides resistance to the formation of deposits caused by oxidation at high operating temperatures and maintains consistency, thereby reducing leakage

3 Offers good corrosion resistance characteristics to offer effective protection in challenging environments.
