Features

Unirex N greases exhibit excellent high and low temperature performance, resistance to water and corrosion, and long service life in a range of bearing applications.

Features Advantages and Potential Benefits
Excellent high-temperature performance Lithium-complex thickener resists softening / running out of bearings at temperatures up to 190°C
Outstanding grease life Laboratory bearing rig tests show outstanding continuous lubrication performance at bearing temperatures of up to 140°C
Very good low-temperature characteristics Start-up power requirements are low at temperatures down to at least -20°C. Meets DIN 51825 low temperature torque requirements at -20°C
Excellent mechanical stability Exhibits excellent resistance to softening due to mechanical working
Excellent water and corrosion resistance Resists water washout and protects bearings against corrosion
Excellent performance in high-speed applications Channelling characteristics provide excellent performance in high- speed deep-groove ball bearings. Unirex N3 is recommended where DmN (mean bearing diameter X rpm) exceeds 360,000

Applications

UNIREX N 2 is an NLGI No. 2 grade and is preferred in most cases for application by hand-packing or by grease gun. UNIREX N 2 is recommended for the lubrication of electric motors. It is suitable for NEMA (National Electric Manufacturer's Association) Insulation Class A, B, and F motors.


UNIREX N 3 is an NLGI No. 3 grade and is used for special applications such as sealed-for-life bearings, vertically-mounted bearings, and higher-speed bearings.


Most of the uses for UNIREX N involve manual methods of application. Although UNIREX N 2 is suitable for use in automatic centralized systems, equipment served by these systems would normally not require the long-life properties of UNIREX N, since one of the functions of automatic systems is to replenish the lubricant at relatively short time intervals. UNIREX N 3 should not be used in such systems.

Can Mobil Polyrex EM 103 Grease be used instead of Mobil UNIREX N3?
A shopper on Dec 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: These two products cannot be mixed, because they have different thickeners. One is a polyurea and the other lithium. To replace one with the other you would need to completely purge and then use.
Is there an (Material Stock Number (MSN or NSN) National Stock Number) for the Unirex N 3 Lithium Complex Grease (35lb) 5 Gal bucket?
A shopper on May 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The product number for the Unirex N3 is XOM102743. According to Mobil there is no NSN or MSN for the Unirex N3.
