The Advantages of Using AMSOIL Synthetic Grease



Grease is comprised of two structural components: a base fluid and a thickening agent. Different types and combinations of base fluids and thickeners, along with supplemental structure modifiers and performance additives, combine to give the final product its special lubricating properties.

Many different types of base oil may be used in the manufacture of a grease, including petroleum (naphthenic, paraffinic) and synthetic (PAOs, esters, silicones, glycols). Just as with motor oils and transmission fluids, the viscosity of the base oil is the most significant property. A lighter, lower-viscosity base oil is used to formulate low-temperature greases, while a heavier, higher-viscosity base oil is used to formulate high-temperature greases.

To enhance the grease's performance characteristics (including dropping point and load-carrying ability), a complexing agent may be added to the soap thickener to convert it to a soap-salt complex thickener. Greases formulated with soap-salt complex thickeners are referred to as "complexes" and include lithium complex and calcium-sulfonate complex greases.

Additives such as extreme-pressure, anti-wear and friction-reducing agents are added to the grease to enhance performance, much like the additives in lubricating oils. Performance requirements, compatibility, environmental considerations, color and cost all factor into additive selection.

Greases are classified into nine consistency grades (000, 00, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6) established by the National Lubrication and Grease Institute (NLGI). NLGI #000 greases are nearly fluid, while NLGI #6 greases are nearly solid. The most commonly used grease is NLGI #2. Softer grades are often used for improved pumpability or low-temperature service, while harder grades are used where leakage or sealing are particular concerns.

DOMINATOR® Synthetic Racing Grease



Anti-Wear Performance

DOMINATOR Racing Grease is engineered with extreme-pressure additives to deliver excellent wear protection in heavily loaded, high-speed racing applications. Its high-performance anti-wear additive package helps ensure long component life.

All-Temperature Protection

DOMINATOR Racing Grease pairs a high-viscosity-index synthetic base oil with a top-quality lithium complex thickener known for its extraordinary performance in temperature extremes. It offers excellent low-temperature pumpability and high-temperature consistency for dependable protection in all temperatures.

Resists Oxidation, Corrosion & Washout

DOMINATOR Racing Grease contains a robust package of oxidation inhibitors, helping prevent grease breakdown and component surface damage. Its excellent adhesion and cohesion properties allow it to resist water washout during operation in wet conditions. A premium blend of corrosion inhibitors further protects against rust and corrosion formation.
AMSOIL synthetic greases are designed to outperform competing products by providing extended service intervals, excellent pound-out and washout resistance, low-temperature fluidity and more.
