Shell Lubricant Solutions (Houston, TX) has announced the Shell Gadus S3 V220C 2 grease is now certified against the NLGI High-Performance Multiuse (HPM) certification, in addition to its previously held NLGI GC–LB performance classification, making it the first dual-certified grease currently available in the world. Shell Gadus S3 V220C 2 grease has also obtained the +HL tag for enhanced level of performance in the heavy load carrying capacity category.
According to Shell, its Gadus S3 V220C 2 grease’s HPM certification speaks to Shell’s consistency, technology and excellence due to its rigorous qualification testing. The HPM Grease Certification Program ensures that all certified greases meet or surpass the High-Performance Multiuse grease specification requirements in the areas of mechanical stability, oil separation, water resistance, heat tolerance, corrosion resistance and load carry capacity. The product is audited every year and tests are repeated annually to maintain the certification and customers’ confidence.
Prior to receiving the NLGI HPM +HL certification, the Shell Gadus S3 Grease already held the internationally recognized NLGI GC-LB classification. This performance classification is given to greases that have been tested and verified to demonstrate performance characteristics that meet the industry’s highest performance classification, ASTM D4950 - Standard Classification and Specification for Automotive Service Greases.
