Graphite grease: composition and applications

Broadly speaking, graphite grease is a lubricant with a high percentage of graphite that makes it the ideal solution for lubricating mechanisms or equipment where greasing is not required so frequently, with a high level of friction or where there is difficulty in accessing grease fittings.

Graphite grease: composition and applications

Broadly speaking, graphite grease is a lubricant with a high percentage of graphite that makes it the ideal solution for lubricating mechanisms or equipment where greasing is not required so frequently, with a high level of friction or where there is difficulty in accessing grease fittings.

It is generally made from a calcium base and highly refined mineral oils. It is most often formulated in calcium 12-hydroxystearate soap and although it can be made on other soaps, the cost is high.

Adding graphite to this grease transfers the amazing properties of graphite to reduce friction and wear of the machine or equipment it is applied to, as well as oxidation.

What are its main properties?

  • Antifriction: This lubricating grease reduces friction and wear of the part, machinery or equipment, giving it a longer life time and avoiding the need to replace it in a very short time.
  • It is ideal to withstand high speed operations without the graphite grease slipping out of place due to its adhesive properties.
  • High temperature resistance Does not change its consistency even at high temperatures, or at very high or low speeds.
  • Sealant Graphite grease prevents external contaminants such as dust and moisture from entering the system.
  • Regulates temperature Prevents overheating Lubrication for any area Lubrication for any area
  • Lubrication for any area Ideal for parts where access to lubrication is difficult.
  • Easy application. This grease can be applied by hand, with a grease cup, grease gun or with centralized automatic greasing devices.

This graphite grease is widely used for maintenance of water pumps or motors that are exposed to humidity or water. It is also used for forklift or elevator guides, bearing lubrication and other industrial applications.

On a closer level, graphitized grease is used by plumbers, locksmiths or gas fitters.

It is applied in all kinds of bearings, safety bolts, general or flexible joints, suspension torsion bars and automotive, agricultural and industrial applications in general.

Graphite solutions for equipment lubrication

At ESGRAF we handle excellent products and our graphite greases always meet the highest quality standards. We always have a product to provide an effective and efficient solution with the security of years of experience behind us.

We have graphite grease but also other types of graphite-based lubricant products such as lubricants for agricultural machinery in dry for iron to iron contact, lubricants for dry transport without contamination for rail cars, tractor trucks, etc., as well as lubricants for grain hoppers in a water-based paint that is applied on the walls of the hoppers.

We also offer graphite lubricant paints that are easily applied on all weather components with a self-lubricating and environmentally friendly surface coating and powders that are widely used as dry or active lubricants in various industrial applications.
