Heavy-Duty Grease Performs in Extreme Conditions
Almaplex Ultra-Syn Lubricant has the power to increase equipment uptime and
enhance bottom line profitability by offering exceptional quality, versatility and
reliability. A heavy-duty synthetic grease containing LE’s proprietary additives
Almasol® and Quinplex®, Almaplex Ultra-Syn provides optimum performance
under extreme operating conditions. It is an aluminum complex thickened grease
made with an ISO 460 viscosity synthetic base fluid, a combination that provides
superior high-temperature functionality, low-temperature pumpability and
excellent performance in the presence of water
Almaplex 1299 & 1298 (NLGI grades 2 & 1, respectively) provide 73 percent higher
extreme pressure performance than competitive grease, as indicated by the
results of the Four Ball EP Test. In the Water Spray-Off Test, competitive greases
lost almost six times more grease. This performance offers the potential for
energy savings and reduced operating temps in applications such as construction,
agriculture, mining, steel mills and paper mills; hammer mills; extruders and ball
mills. Almaplex 1299 can be used in couplings where AGMA CG-1, CG-2 and CG-3
lubricants are recommended.
Almaplex 1297 & 1295 (NLGI grades 0 & 000, respectively) are semifluid greases
with superior film strength. They are excellent for use in heavily loaded bearings in
cold temperature applications. They also perform well in any gearbox that requires
a semifluid grease, particularly enclosed gearboxes where housings and seals have
lost their ability to retain conventional gear oils.
LE’s proprietary additives are used exclusively
in LE lubricants. Almaplex Ultra-Syn Lubricant
contains Almasol and Quinplex.
solid wear-reducing additive is able
to withstand extremely heavy loads, chemical

minimizes metal-to-metal contact and the
resulting friction, heat and wear.
