Valvoline announced it is introducing an innovative new grease designed with a breakthrough viscosity delivery system trademarked Valvoline Cobalt Grease with Pressure Activated Technology.
Valvoline said its Cobalt Grease reduces friction and can handle heat in extreme environments. The Pressure Activated Technology allows Valvoline Cobalt Grease to deliver ISO 1000 lubricating fluid, ensuring EP protection and sufficient film thickness.
"When compared to common competitive products, Cobalt has tested phenomenally, both in the field and the lab," said Fran Lockwood, Valvoline's senior vice president of research and development. "This new formulation has proven to be unique in its ability to provide excellent film strength under tremendous loads."
Valvoline Cobalt Grease contains a lithium sulfonate complex thickening system that provides metal with inherent corrosion protection in harsh environments, even salt water. According to the company, the grease also offers pumpability and extended oxidation protection to help promote longer service life.
“We expect Valvoline Cobalt Grease to improve our customers' asset reliability and uptime by reducing grease related failures and optimizing maintenance intervals," said David Young, vice president, channel partner sales.
Valvoline Cobalt Grease with Pressure Activated Technology is suitable for applications in mining, quarry, construction, trucking, refuse, ready-mix fleets, industrial, agriculture and more.
