Lithium greases are widely used in industries, e.g. automobile, steel, aircrafts, heavy machinery, and railcars. They represent > 70 % of the worldwide grease production for technical applications.
Lithium hydroxide is a reagent used to produce lithium stearate (mainly lithium 12-hydroxy-stearate), which acts as thickener in the final grease formulation.
Lithium greases are water resistant and additionally very resistant to high and low temperatures. They are also characterized by a very wide working temperature range.
