A new 5th wheel trailer grease from Plews & Edelmann offers protection against friction and corrosion, even in extreme weather and heavy-duty operating conditions, the company said.
The UltraLube 5th Wheel Trailer Grease is offered in a 2-ounce “smash pack” to provide better control over the amount of grease applied to the fifth wheel. Users simply place the appropriate number of packs on the plate and drop the trailer, bursting the packs and spreading the grease across the plate, the company said.
“Performance and convenience are critical for drivers who spend their lives on the road,” said Dave Babics, senior product manager. “That is why we developed UltraLube 5th Wheel Trailer Grease to be applied easily and remain effective over the long haul.”
The company also announced that its UltraLube bio-based greases, oils, and spray lubricants & penetrants have received the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture’s BioPreferred designation.
The designation indicates the products are composed in whole or in significant part of biological products, forestry materials, or renewable domestic agricultural materials. Products with the BioPreferred designation can help federal agencies and contractors meet green procurement mandates that require purchases of bio-based products within identified categories, such as hydraulic fluids and lubricants.
According to Plews & Edelmann, its bio-based oil has four times the natural lubricity of petroleum-based oils, allowing UltraLube to instantly penetrate into areas where lubrication is needed and creating a long-lasting bond to metal and plastic surfaces.
