Lubricating Grease


Moly-Plex EP 2 is a lubricating grease formulated to meet the extreme conditions encountered on off-highway construction equipment as well as heavy duty applications. Moly-Plex EP 2 meets Caterpillar 1E1487 lubricating grease specification. This product is a lithium complex thickened grease blended with high viscosity base fluids for exceptional film strength and is fortified with molybdenum disulfide for additional load carrying capacity and anti-wear performance.

In addition, Moly-Plex EP 2 contains a unique blend of extreme pressure, anti-wear and rust and oxidation inhibitors as well as functional polymers for better adhesion in wet environments and better performance at higher temperatures. Because it is a lithium complex thickened grease, Moly-Plex EP 2 has a high dropping point which also provides excellent protection in high temperature environments.
