Mobil Aviation Grease SHC 100 was developed with key OEMs over a decade ago to ensure exceptional performance and help improve equipment reliability. Today, it’s approved by all major aircraft wheel manufacturers as it helps protect against wear, rust, corrosion and high-temperature degradation; provides excellent resistance to oxidation; and remains stable in adverse weather and other water-exposure conditions.
Features and Benefits
A key factor in the development of Mobil Aviation Grease SHC 100 was the close contact between ExxonMobil engineers and key OEMs to ensure the lubricant would provide exceptional performance in aircraft wheel bearings. This work confirms the results from the ExxonMobil laboratory showing the exceptional performance of Grease SHC 100 including long grease life, enhanced bearing protection and bearing life in aircraft wheels, and wide temperature range of application.
To combat high thermal exposure of the oil, ExxonMobil formulators chose synthetic hydrocarbon base oils for Mobil Aviation Grease SHC 100 because of their exceptional thermal/oxidative resistance potential. A state-of-the-art lithium complex thickener technology was developed and used specific additives to enhance performance.
Mobil Aviation Grease SHC 100 is recommended for aviation applications requiring a lubricant that can perform normal functions, yet go far beyond in terms of high and low temperatures and long-life performance. It is a NLGI Grade 2/ISO VG 100 grease having the cold-temperature pumping resistance of most mineral-oil NLGI Grade 0 greases. It provides outstanding protection at operating temperatures from –54 ºC (-65 ºF) to 177 ºC (350 ºF).
Mobil Aviation grease SHC 100 is recommended for high speed, heavy load applications such as wheel bearings, as well as for slower speed, high load applications such as landing gear bearings, slides, and joints.
Mobil Aviation Grease SHC 100 is approved as a wheel bearing grease by all major aircraft wheel manufacturers.
