Grease compatibility

 

Ball bearings with blue grease

When it comes to mixing greases, not all combinations are created equal. In fact, incompatible greases can lead to ineffective lubrication – and even damage of the lubricated components – through significant hardening or softening of the grease mixture. Understanding industry standard lab investigations and what their results can (and cannot) tell you about the compatibility of greases is critical. Learn more about these lab investigations, what the tests can tell you and get a general guideline for grease compatibility.
