Aviation grease is a type of lubricating grease designed for aircraft use. It is made up of a thickener, base oil, and additives. The thickener helps to keep the grease from becoming too thin at high temperatures, while the base oil provides lubrication and protection against wear. Additives can include anti-rust agents, anti-foaming agents, and extreme pressure additives. Aviation grease is available in several grades, depending on the intended application.
Some typical applications for aviation grease include lubricating aircraft bearings, gears, and other moving parts. It can also be used to protect against corrosion and to seal out moisture.
The Importance of Quality Aviation Grease
As with any lubricating grease, the quality of aviation grease is essential. Poor quality grease can cause excessive wear on aircraft components, and it can also lead to corrosion. Choosing a high-quality aviation grease designed for the specific application is essential.
AwSUM’s Aviation Greases
With a reputation for high-quality products and outstanding customer service, AwSUM’s line of aviation greases is renowned in the industry. The company offers two main types of aviation grease: Aeriol ThixO#2 and Aeriol ThixOSyn. Both produce superior performance and durability, making them ideal choices for aircraft applications requiring friction reduction and corrosion prevention.
Aeriol ThixO#2 Aviation Grease
Aeriol ThixO#2 Aviation Grease uses an advanced thickening agent and superior additive technology, exhibiting high water washout resistance. It has excellent thermal and oxidation stability, resulting in longer component life and increased productivity.
An expert lubricant called Aeriol ThixO#2 Aviation Grease is intended to provide:
- Exceptional outcomes under the most difficult circumstances
- A broad range of aircraft applications, flexibility in performance
- Absolute stability
- A broad range of temperatures from -35 to > 250°C (based on application)
- Preventing rust and seizing
ThixO#2 can increase the performance of your simple nuts, bolts, drives, hub sets, and splines. In regions designated by the OEM, it is permitted for use on helicopters and aviation equipment. From the Civil Aviation Authority in New Zealand, Transport Canada, and other nations across the world, Aeriol ThixO#2 Aviation Grease has obtained numerous regional approvals for particular models. For particular uses, especially as a CPC, Aeriol ThixO#2 Aviation Grease is certified and advised for use in a variety of Bell Helicopter types.
Aeriol ThixOSyn Aviation Grease
Aeriol ThixOSyn Aviation Grease is a specialty lubricant that reduces starting and running torque. It can also handle high load and pressure protection over 1.4 GPa without using solid lubricants such as molybdenum compounds.
This high-performance, totally synthetic grease combines the special qualities of an over-based calcium sulfonate thickener with the special qualities of a PAO synthetic base oil and superior EP/AW chemistry. Excellent performance in all aviation applications and durable protection for aircraft parts are provided by this unique composition.
Improve the efficiency of your: tail rotor trunnion pitch assemblies, horn bearing assemblies, swashplate bearing, and helicopter rotor hub trunnion pitch assemblies for the Bell 206A/B, L, L1, L3, L4, and TH-67 series.
In contrast to conventional grease formulations, Aeriol ThixOSyn Aviation Grease’s low oil separation rate enables the use of a high index, low viscosity base oil. complies with or exceeds the following: Bell, MIL-PRF-24139 BELL Specification 299-947-554, Consumable Material Reference C-172.
