High load, extreme pressure, wide temperature range grease

SKF High Load, Extreme Pressure, Wide Temperature Range Bearing Grease LGWA 2
SKF LGWA 2 is a premium quality mineral oil based, lithium complex grease with extreme pressure (EP) performance. LGWA 2 is recommended for general industrial and automotive applications, when loads or temperatures exceed the range of general purpose greases.
  • Excellent lubrication at peak temperatures up to 220 °C (430 °F) for short periods
  • Protection of wheel bearings operating under severe conditions
  • Effective lubrication in wet conditions
  • Good water and corrosion resistance
  • Excellent lubrication under high loads and low speeds

Typical applications:

  • Wheel bearings in cars, trailers and trucks
  • Washing machines
  • Fan and electric motors
