Royal Purple Develops Innovative Technology for New Coupling Grease


High-performance lubricant manufacturer Royal Purple of Porter, Texas, announces that it has developed a new industrial coupling grease. The new product is a lithium complex, high film-strength grease that provides superior resistance to oil separation from the high centrifugal forces generated by couplings. It is formulated with high-viscosity synthetic oils and tacky, synthetic polymers, plus Royal Purple’s proprietary SynslideTM additive technology.

This technology gives Royal Purple’s EP lubricants their performance advantages. Synslide offers maximum protection under boundary lubrication conditions typically caused by heavily loaded, slow-speed and/or shock-load conditions. This tough, proprietary, slippery film significantly improves lubrication and reduces wear by increasing both film thickness and oil-film toughness, thus reducing metal-to-metal contact.

Synslide is non-corrosive, displaces water from metal surfaces, and excels in protecting equipment in wet environments. It also fortifies the oil against the detrimental effects of heat, which causes oil to oxidize. Royal Purple’s Coupling Grease is available in 55 gallon drums and five gallon pails.

Royal Purple makes synthetic products for a wide variety of industrial and automotive needs, including commercial engine oils, food-grade lubricants, industrial gear lubricants greases, and hydraulic lubricants.
