Benefits of Mobilith SHC 221 include longer grease life, enhanced bearing protection and bearing life, wide temperature range of application, and the potential for improved mechanical efficiency and energy savings.

To combat high thermal exposure of the oil our product formulation scientists chose proprietary synthetic base oils for Mobilith SHC Series oils because of their exceptional thermal/oxidative resistance potential. They developed a state-of-the-art lithium complex thickener technology and used specific additives to enhance the performance of Mobilith SHC 221. 

Mobilith SHC  221 offers the following features and benefits:

Features Advantages and Potential Benefits
Outstanding high temperature and low temperature performance Wide application temperature ranges, with excellent protection at high temperatures and low torque, easy start-up at low temperatures
Excellent protection against wear, rust and corrosion Reduced downtime and maintenance costs because of reduced wear, rust and corrosion
Excellent thermal stability and oxidation resistance Extended service life with longer intervals between relubrication and improved bearing life
Low traction coefficient Potential to improve mechanical life and reduced energy consumption
Includes both high and low viscosity grades Options for outstanding protection of slow speed, heavily loaded bearings, and options for good low temperature performance
Outstanding structural stability in the presence of water Retains excellent grease performance in hostile aqueous environments
Low volatility Helps resists viscosity increase at high temperatures to maximize relubrication intervals and bearing life


While Mobilith SHC Series greases are compatible with most mineral oil based products, admixture may detract from their performance. Consequently it is recommended that before changing a system to one of the Mobilith SHC Series, it should be thoroughly cleaned out to achieve the maximum performance benefits. 

  • Mobilith SHC 221 is a multi-purpose, extreme pressure grease recommended for heavy-duty automotive and industrial applications, particularly where centralized grease systems are utilized. It uses an ISO VG 220 synthetic base fluid. Mobilith SHC 221 has a recommended operating temperature range of -40º C to 150º C.
