Ultraplex 3

Ultraplex 3 is a high-performance, multipurpose, extreme pressure (EP) lithium complex grease developed to satisfy the severe lubrication requirements of construction and off-road equipment manufactured by Caterpillar, Komatsu Dresser, Case New Holland, John Deere and others. It is particularly recommended for use in off-highway trucks and heavy equipment, such as bulldozers, motor graders, pipe layers, scrapers, skidders, wheel loaders and soil compactors, operating under heavy or shock load conditions. Ultraplex 3 is manufactured with high-quality, heavy base oils thickened with a lithium complex soap. It contains an effective extreme-pressure additive, 3% molybdenum disulfide (moly), a tackifier, and rust and oxidation inhibitors to provide excellent wear protection, as well as excellent corrosion protection and resistance to water washout in equipment operating under wet conditions and/or high temperatures and subject to heavy or shock loading.
