Amsoil Synthetic Polymeric Truck, Chassis and Equipment Grease is formulated to deliver wear protection and extreme-pressure performance in medium- and heavy-duty applications. Combining select base oils, proprietary synthetic polymeric chemistry and an advanced additive package with lithium-complex thickener, the grease is said to have excellent impact resistance and exceptional adhesion and cohesion properties to keep the grease in place, sealing out water and contaminants.

The company says the grease offers superior rust and corrosion protection from road salt and other deicing chemicals. It clings to surfaces to keep rain, snow and other corrosive elements from penetrating components so they last longer, reducing maintenance costs. In addition, its exclusive formulation is said to provide superior performance in extreme-pressure environments and is highly resistant to grease poundout, providing long-lasting protection.

It is recommended for heavy-duty over-the-road tractors and trailers, delivery fleets, dump trucks, refuse haulers, utility fleets, emergency service vehicles, sewer and septic trucks, snow removal vehicles, wreckers, municipal service vehicles, equipment haulers, cement mixer trucks, airport support vehicles and more.

According to the company, the grease provides critical protection for heavily loaded chassis grease points, wheel bearings, axle assemblies, universal joints, pivot pins, fifth-wheel hitch plates, steering linkages, spring pins, kingpins, ball joints, water pump bearings and other greased heavy-duty components.
