Product information

Features and Benefits

The Mobil SHC™ brand of oils and greases are recognized and appreciated around the world for their innovation and outstanding performance. A key factor in the development of ExxonMobil´s products was the close contacts with key Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to ensure that our product offerings would provide exceptional performance in the continually evolving industrial equipment designs.

Our work with equipment builders has helped confirm the results from our own laboratory tests showing the exceptional performance of Mobil SHC Grease 460 WT. Compared to conventional greases the benefits of this synthetic grease include longer grease life, enhanced false brinelling protection and bearing life, wide temperature range of application, and the potential for improved mechanical efficiency.

To combat severe application conditions proprietary synthetic base oils have been chosen for Mobil SHC Grease 460 WT because of their outstanding thermal/oxidative resistance potential. A state-of-the-art lithium complex thickener technology and specific additives help to enhance the performance of Mobil SHC Grease 460 WT offering the following features and benefits:
