Grease is made of a base oil, additives and a thickener (soap) which stops it from running away. The main purposes of a grease are to minimise friction and protect against moisture and dirt to prevent wear and corrosion in the lubricated area. Our Research and Development departments have developed a comprehensive range of greases made from several grades of high-performance soaps and base oils. To find the YORK grease that is most suitable for your application, a range of factors must be taken into consideration. Our technical sales staff are on hand to advise you in this matter.
