Calcium Complex grease 400g tube’s are a complex calcium sulphonate grease. This provides superior performance benefits in the highly aggressive conditions experienced in the marine environment.
CCG or Calcium Complex grease is a true multipurpose grease. Used in ships machinery and anything requiring a ‘sticky’ grease. CCG lubricant has been specifically developed to provide enhanced lubrication and protection for bearings, wire ropes and open gears.
CCG is suitable for most journal bearings, wire ropes and open gears in marine deck equipment. Can also be considered for roller, ball and needle bearings, generally used in engine room equipment.
More Calcium Complex Grease Information
Lithium–complex greases generally possess good stability, high–temperature characteristics and water resistance properties. You can improve other performance requirements like extreme pressure, anti–wear, rust and corrosion by adding suitable additives. These greases also meet the NLGI’s GCLB specification requirements. Calcium-sulfonate greases out–perform lithium–complex greases, both on the data sheet as well as in actual applications. The most important difference between these two types of grease is: that calcium–sulfonate greases do not typically need additives to meet certain performance requirements like lithium-complex greases do.
Calcium–sulfonate greases exhibit superior mechanical and shear stability. This is compared to lithium–complex greases. Thus indicating less leakage and run–out during operation. The dropping point and high temperature life of calcium–sulfonate greases are also better. Therefore you can use these greases at high temperatures..
Unlike lithium–complex greases, which need a significant amount of antimony, zinc or other types of additives, calcium–sulfonate thickeners have inherent extreme pressure and anti–wear properties. Furthermore, lithium–complex greases invariably need rust inhibiting additives.
By virtue of its thickener property it provides excellent water resistance. It does not break down even in the presence of water. To improve their water resistance properties, lithium–complex greases usually require tackifiers, which are prone to deplete quickly. Calcium greases don’t suffer like this. Calcium–sulfonate greases are also compatible with lithium and lithium–complex greases.
