The rheolube product line generally consists of soap thickened synthetic hydrocarbon greases that were originally created to provide a wide range of greases that would serve the needs of various automotive components. All of the greases in the rheolube family are also fortified with various additives for anti-wear, anti-oxidant, anti- corrosion, and extreme pressure to improve performance.
the 360 series was developed to be used in various applications such as bearings, sliding surfaces, gear trains, and electrical components. As the product line developed over the years, the 380 series was developed for power tools, automotive starters, gears, and heavily loaded mechanical devices.
the 380 series utilizes a soap thickened synthetic hydrocarbon/ester grease base that is fortified with various additives.
the 730 series is comprised of clay thickened synthetic hydrocarbon greases designed for gear boxes, applications requiring low torque, and instrument motor gear trains.
the 789 series consists of clay thickened ester greases which were developed to have higher thermal stability than the 730 series. The main applications for the 789 series are instrument motor gear trains, roller element bearings, and gear trains.
also included in the rheolube product line is the 2000 series which was specifically developed for instruments and bearings in aerospace and vacuum applications. These greases consist of multiply alkylated cyclopentane thickened with a sodium soap complex.
