Lithium Stearate and Lithium Grease Overview

Lithium Octadecanoic also known as lithium-octadecanoic has a white, powdery appearance and is extremely stable to average temperatures and pressures. Insoluble with ethylacetate. The water solubility of the product is 0.09g/100ml. Colloids are formed when mineral oil is used. Most commonly used for stabilizers. To make a lithium-based oil, a high-viscosity synthetic lubricating fluid or medium-viscosity mineral can be thickened using lithium stearate.

Performance Properties

(1) Oil thickened by lithiumstearate. There is only one intersecting temperature. This is the initial temperature that takes the grease from the pseudo-gel stage to gel. The second transition temperature, which goes from the gel phase to the sol, is higher than 170 °C.

(2) An electromicroscope can see that grease with lithiumstearate has become a double-stranded ribbon. It offers excellent mechanical stability.

(3) Calculation of heat of the adsorption and binding of alkanes to lithium-hydroxy stearate and liquid stearate by gaschromatography and determination of their melting point by using lithium 12-hydroxystearate.

(4) Due to the low water solubility of the alkali-metal, oils thickened with lithium Stearate have excellent water resistance. They can also be used to protect wet and machine parts from water.

It is capable of thickening mineral oil and synthetic oil. This means that lithium-based grease may reduce the thickness dose by around 1/3, while the service time can be increased by one. The number of times it is used to thicken grease can be more than twice. Many lithium-based oils, including those that contain lithium 12-hydroxy stearate soot, include antioxidants, high pressure agents and rust inhibitors to make them long-lasting multi-purpose general-purpose greases. The grease can be used for bearing oil in automobiles, aircrafts, tanks, machines tools, and many other types of mechanical equipment.

1 Introduction

All-purpose liquid lithium grease made of lithium soap. This is thickened with high-viscosity mineral oils and is enriched with an antioxidation agent.

2. Performance

(l). Excellent resistance to rust and water. This can be used on both wet and dry parts that have come in contact water.

(2) It exhibits excellent mechanical and colloidal stability. The grease doesn’t get ruined or thinned under mechanical shearing at high speeds.

(3) Extreme heat resistance with a high drop point. It can also be used under higher temperatures.

3. Use

A long-lasting multi-purpose oil, universal lithium grease can be replaced by calcium-based and sodium-based lubricants. It offers excellent water resistance, mechanical stability as well as rust resistance. These include cars, tractor-wheel bearings, motors of all sizes, pumps, blowers, and small to medium-sized engines. They are suitable for use with mining machinery, autos, tractor bearings, large or medium engines and all other types of equipment.

4. Notes

(l) To avoid oil precipitation, grease made with general purpose lithium-based oils should not come in large quantities. The oil may be used at roomtemperature if it is small.

(2) Do NOT mix with other fats.

II Automotive, general-purpose liquid lithium grease

l. Introduction

All-purpose general-purpose lithium grease can be made by thickening the fatty soap with low condensation oil and adding antioxidant and rust inhibitor.

2. Performance

(1) It’s extremely water-resistant and rust resistant and can be used to clean wet and machine parts.

(3) It exhibits excellent mechanical stability. This grease won’t deteriorate or become lost under high-speed machine shearing.

3. Use

Liquid for automotive general purpose is ideal for oiling friction parts in automobiles such as chassis bearings, hub bearings, water pumps, and the wheel bearings for tanks. Comparable to the existing calcium-based fats and complex Calcium-based greases the oil change times are extended twofold, wear is decreased, and the range is simpler. More than 40 %.

can help reduce oil consumption and maintenance cost by satisfying the requirements of cars that are used from the colder zones to the tropicals.

4. Notes

Wash the bearing every time it’s in use. Once the bearing is dried, pour the grease into both the inner and outer raceways.

(2) It is important to keep the grease container clean.

3) After it has been activated, you should seal the container tightly.

l. Introduction

This synthetic lithium-based grease is created by thickening a medium viscosity petroleum oil with lithiumstearate. It can be divided according to its penetration into the following grades: ZL-4H; ZL-2H; ZL-3H; and ZL-2H.

2. Performance


(2) It is very stable mechanically.

(3) Great drop point and heat resistance.

3. Use

This synthetic lithium grease has a very long life span and is extremely versatile. It is used for the lubrication on rolling and sliding friction components of mechanical equipment, with temperatures from -20 °C up to 120 °C. These include cars, tractor-wheel bearings, small- to medium-sized engines, pumps, and blowers. They are also ideal for mining machinery, cars, tractor wheel bearings as well large and small engines. It is able to be used for an extended period of time in temperatures up to 120 degrees Celsius.

4. Notes

(l). It’s simple to extract oil from the large container. You can use a very small amount of oil to make it work, provided you stir well.

(2) It can not be mixed or combined with other greases.
