Almamoly HD Grease contains Almasol®, LE’s proprietary solid additive, as well as 5 percent molybdenum disulfide (also known as molydisulfide or moly). Compared to other solid lubricant-containing greases that rely on moly or graphite alone, Almamoly HD Grease’s synergistic combination of moly and Almasol helps ensure reliable wear-resistant lubrication, staying in place even when the lubricant is squeezed out of the contact zone due to extreme pressure or heavy shock loading.

The calcium sulfonate thickener - an increasingly popular choice in the marketplace - provides additional performance features that make this grease desirable for extreme conditions. In contrast to other thickeners, calcium sulfonate inherently prevents rust and corrosion. It has a very high dropping point and exhibits excellent mechanical stability and extreme pressure properties.

“Purchasing a high-quality heavy-duty grease is much less expensive than repairing or replacing parts and equipment and losing valuable production time,” said Darren Booth, LE’s vice president of operations. “By using a calcium sulfonate thickener with the synergistic combination of molydisulfide and Almasol solids, we have come up with a robust grease formulation that will protect heavy equipment from extreme wear and tough operating conditions. Our customers expect performance from LE greases; they will not be disappointed with this new product.”

Almamoly HD Grease can be used for equipment that requires or specifies greases containing solid lubricants, including heavy-duty mobile equipment requiring 5 percent moly grease. It meets the requirements of major OEMs. Typical applications include articulated trucks, backhoes, bulldozers, conveyors, crushers, excavators, loaders and shovels. It is especially useful for swiveling and pivoting parts including articulated joints, bucket pins, sleeve bearings, pivot bearings, hinge pins, latches, locks, spindles, threaded parts, cams and slides.

An NLGI 1 grease, Almamoly HD Grease (1488) comes in 14-oz grease tubes, 35-lb pails and drum-sized bulk containers. It can be used in automatic lubricators and centralized lubrication systems.

Proprietary Additive
Available exclusively in LE lubricants, Almasol® solid wear-reducing additive is able to withstand extremely heavy loads, chemical attack and temperatures up to 1,900°F (1,038°C). It is attracted to metal surfaces, forming a microscopic layer but not building on itself or affecting clearances. Almasol minimizes metal-to-metal contact and the resulting friction, heat and wear.
