Just like all engine oils, not all mechanical greases were created equal. In fact, with the varying requirements of each different engine type, a range of greases exist to provide targeted performance. This article will provide information on different types of grease and which is the best suited to your engine needs.

What Are the Different Types of Grease and Which Uses Are They Best Suited For

When it comes to lubricating your engine, there is no denying that a synthetic oil change using a high-quality synthetic engine fluid provides the best protection. However, there is also no denying that putting synthetic engine oil on your bearings and chassis components isn’t going to provide the same type of performance. When it comes to these items, lubricating grease is the product for you. If you don’t know much about grease or aren’t sure which is the one for your needs, Progressive Products has a post which can help.

Trucks and Equipment

If you own and operate a truck or working equipment, then you know that downtime means money lost. While engine maintenance is necessary, owners often do all that they can to get the most out of their engine assistant products to stretch out the time before the next lot of scheduled maintenance is required. Synthetic Polymeric Truck grease is designed with increased adhesion and cohesion properties which work to ensure the lubrication stays where it is needed the most while also providing a seal to protect against water and contaminants getting in. The benefit to operators is a grease which provides outstanding performance during heavy duty applications over extended service intervals. The right truck grease depends on the type of truck you’re operating. The best place to start is with Progressive Products’ website where you can read more information about each of the truck greases available. Alternatively, don’t be afraid to call Progressive Product at (425) 483-2582 to find out which grease is best suited to your operating needs. Their experts can help you find all the right tools for all of your engines.

Racing Vehicles - Dirt, Snow, Water, Track

When it comes to racing, no matter the vehicle, the focus is on speed, and not just the speed of the engine. Bearings need to be able to hold heavy loads while providing superior performance at high speeds, and that is exactly what products like AMSOIL's DOMINATOR® Synthetic Racing Grease provide. Designed to reduce friction during high-speed applications, products such as racing grease also work towards increasing the fuel economy of a vehicle along with helping it perform at its optimum. As any owner or driver knows, the more performance you can get out of a tank of fuel on race day, the better. In addition to these benefits, racing grease such as this includes anti-wear properties helping to fight off the formation or rust and corrosion.

Off-Road Vehicles (Including Heavy Loads)

When it comes to off-road vehicles, including those with heavy loads, it’s all about pressure. Particularly, the pressure placed on joints where the chassis pivots. In these places, the importance is on keeping the grease active on the impact areas to prevent metal to metal impact. As any owner/operator knows, if the metal is left to impact with metal at key stress and pivot points, the result is a serious increase in wear and degradation. That’s where products like Synthetic Polymeric Off-Road Grease, NLGI #1 come in. Utilizing an exclusive synthetic polymeric technology, this grease provides a superior ability to not only cling to components but also cling to itself. Together, these allow it to stay where it’s needed the most for longer. By staying in these places, also known as ‘resisting pound-out,' the properties allow for longer intervals between service and replacement, simply because the grease isn’t pushed out during regular activity. Similar to the truck grease mentioned above, this is crucial for owners and operators to get the most out of their vehicles by keeping them in service for longer periods.
