Valvoline introduces innovative grease product for heavy-duty application

Valvoline(TM),  an Ashland company headquartered in Lexington, Ky., U.S.A., has introduced an innovative grease product suitable for heavy-duty application, designed with a breakthrough viscosity delivery system, trademarked Valvoline Cobalt(TM) Grease with Pressure Activated Technology(TM).

Valvoline Cobalt Grease reduces friction and can handle heat in extreme environments, the company said. The Pressure Activated Technology allows Valvoline Cobalt Grease to deliver ISO 1000 lubricating fluid, ensuring extreme pressure (EP) protection and sufficient film thickness on even the heaviest loaded metal surfaces.

“When compared to common competitive products, Cobalt has tested phenomenally, both in the field and the lab,” said Fran Lockwood, senior vice president of research and development at Valvoline. “This new formulation has proven to be unique in its ability to provide excellent film strength under tremendous loads,” she added.

Valvoline Cobalt Grease contains a lithium sulfonate complex thickening system that provides metal with inherent corrosion protection in harsh environments, even in salt water. This one-of-a kind grease also offers pumpability and extended oxidation protection to help promote longer service life.

Valvoline Cobalt Grease with Pressure Activated Technology is suitable for applications in mining, quarry, construction, trucking, refuse, ready mix fleets, industrial, agriculture and more.

“We expect Valvoline Cobalt Grease to improve our customers’ asset reliability and uptime by reducing grease related failures and optimising maintenance intervals,” said David Young, Valvoline’s vice president, channel partner sales.
