AMSOIL Synthetic High-Viscosity Grease (GVC) is a
lithium-complex-thickened grease blended with premium
ISO-320 synthetic base oils. This grease is fully compounded
with additives providing EP protection, oxidation
resistance and rust and corrosion protection.
AMSOIL High-Viscosity Grease is shear stable, maintaining
its viscosity and consistency in the presence of
mechanical activity. It also stays in place by resisting
water washout. During high-temperature operation,
AMSOIL High-Viscosity Grease’s thickener system
remains intact and the high-viscosity base oils resist
thermal breakdown, providing a thick film for good boundary
lubrication protection. AMSOIL GVC adheres to
critical components in severe conditions to provide
problem-free operation, resulting in increased uptime
and reduced repair and maintenance costs.
AMSOIL Synthetic High-Viscosity Grease is excellent for
use in heavy-duty industrial and off-road applications
where equipment operates under adverse conditions,
including exposure to environmental elements, slow,
heavily-loaded applications and shock-loading conditions.
AMSOIL High-Viscosity Grease is formulated to
excel in wet applications requiring excellent water resistance
and in high-temperature applications up to 177ºC
(350°F) in continuous service and 204ºC (400°F) in intermittent
service. The lithium-complex thickener system
and high-viscosity base oil provide top performance in
hostile environments and heavy-duty industrial or offroad
applications where typical multi-purpose greases
may not perform up to standards.
AMSOIL High-Viscosity Grease is compatible with many
other types of greases. However, it is recommended that
when changing greases the equipment be cleaned of the
old grease when possible or flushed with a liberal amount
of the new grease while the mechanism is in operation.
Closely monitor the system for any inconsistencies. Any
grease compatibility questions should be referred to your
AMSOIL representative or AMSOIL Technical Services.
Maintaining a clean work environment is important when
equipment greasing is performed. Wipe grease fittings
clean prior to injecting grease to prevent contaminant
ingestion. Maintain bearing housings one-third to onehalf
full of grease. Prevent over-greasing as this can
result in excessive heat buildup. Supplement standard
grease maintenance by periodically cleaning and packing
housings with fresh grease on an established maintenance
- High dropping point (exceeds 260°C ( 500°F))
- EP additives and high-viscosity base oil for boundary lubrication protection
- Resists thermal and oxidation degradation
- Resists water washout
