AeroShell Grease 5 Wheel Bearing and Engine Accessory Grease combines high load-carrying ability with excellent resistance to water and high temperatures. It is inhibited against corrosion and oxidation, and has a useful temperature range of -23°C to + 177°C. Used primarily in aircraft wheel bearings and engine accessories operating at high speeds and relatively high temperatures. It is composed of a mineral oil thickened with Microgel®, possessing good load-carrying ability.


AeroShell Grease 5 is particularly effective for use as a wheel bearing grease, especially when landing speeds are high, and is suitable for the lubrication of aircraft and engine accessories operating at high speeds and at relatively high temperatures, e.g. magnetos, generators and starters. For the lubrication of rolling bearings which are required to start at temperatures as low as –23°C an adequate period should be allowed for the grease to channel.
