Spheerol AP 2 and AP 3 are lithium soap thickened greases.


Spheerol AP 2 and AP 3 are lithium-based greases incorporating solvent-refined base oils. They contain oxidation and corrosion inhibitors, which help to ensure long service life and a high level of protection for metal surfaces. The greases are water-resistant.

Spheerol AP 2 and AP 3 are mainly intended for use in plain and roller bearings of all types and in all kinds of machinery under normal load conditions and within an operating temperature range of -20 °C to +120 °C.
