NSK Grease for MRO



Although NSK procures Japan-made grease for clients around the world, we will be able to more rapidly respond to the diverse needs of our customers by making available a selection of our proprietary greases designed to meet the unique requirements of maintenance and repair work of rolling bearings in industrial machinery.

Product Details

The lineup, which features lithium-soap thickened, mineral oil-based grease, includes two multi-purpose greases designed for use under normal operating conditions and one grease designed for heavy-load scenarios. The NSK Grease lineup is characterized by excellent water-resistance, excellent corrosion-resistance, low-evaporation, and a wide functional temperature range (-10 to 110℃). Designed in Japan with product planning by our Singapore division, the lineup will first be available in ASEAN/Oceania countries, with worldwide availability soon to follow.
