CASTROL SPHEEROL SX 2
Calcium complex grease
Spheerol SX2 is a complex calcium sulphonate grease providing superior performance benefits in the
highly aggressive conditions experienced in the marine environment.
Spheerol SX 2 is a true multipurpose ships machinery lubricantspecifically developed to provide enhanced
lubrication and protectionfor bearings, wire ropes and open gears found usuallyin marine environments.
Spheerol SX 2 is suitable for most journal bearings, wire ropes andopen gears used in marine deck equipment
and can be consideredfor roller, ball and needle bearings, generally used in engine roomequipment.
In addition to the excellent protection provided for wire ropes andopen gears, Spheerol SX 2 is also suitable
for use on a wide rangeof deck equipment where it will protect and lubricate hinges, turnbuckles, screws,
fair leads etc.For multipurpose applications, a grease gun may be used withSpheerol SX 2. Alternatively,
traditional application methods canbe used for wire ropes and open gears. (Please see also“Additional Information”).
Spheerol SX2 is proven to offer:•High drop point.•Excellent protection against corrosion.•High resistance to
sea water wash off.•Strong adhesion to surfaces.•A lubricant which is solvent free containing no heavy metals
or harmful constituents.
Extensive evaluation in adverse climatic conditions has confirmedthe outstanding qualities of Spheerol SX 2
as a true multipurposeships machinery lubricant. Service intervals between re-lubricationare extended, reducing
the time spent on preventative maintenance.
CARE AND HANDLING
Avoid prolonged or repeated contact with skin. Wash thoroughlyafter handling.
Care should be taken to ensure that only a thin film of grease isapplied to the external surfaces of the wire
ropes as excessivegreasing could potentially lead to contamination of surrounding areas.
PACKAGING AND STORAGE
All packages should be stored under cover. Where outside storageis unavoidable drums should be laid horizontally
to avoid the possible ingress of water and the obliteration of drum markings.
Products should not be stored above 60°C, exposed to hot sun orfreezing conditions.
