Shell Lubricants has introduced Shell Retinax Fifth Wheel Grease, a heavy-duty calcium grease formulated with a high level of solid additives for enhanced load carrying capability. With its high solids content and heavy base oil formula, the grease provides an effective lubricant film even under the heavy stress and constant sliding contact experienced in fifth wheels, the company says.
Shell Retinax Fifth Wheel Grease is suitable for the lubrication of all fifth-wheel top plates, as it offers additional adhesive properties while remaining resistant to water. The grease also is designed to hold up to the washout and spray-off encountered during long hauls of wet highway driving, and to resist flaking.
The fifth-wheel grease is available in a one-time, easy-to-use squeeze tube that facilitates quick use and the proper amount. Simply apply the grease properly, then dispose of the “used” squeeze tube in accordance with all applicable regulations.
