AERO SHELL 1AC GREASE is a multi-purpose lubricant grease used in the aviation industry. It consists of a mixture of mineral oils, calcium sulfonate and petroleum-based oils. Common uses for AERO SHELL 1AC GREASE include industrial and automotive applications. This lubricant is often used to lubricate and protect bearing surfaces, gears, and other moving parts in aircraft, helicopters, and other aircraft components.
When exposed to AERO SHELL 1AC GREASE, rubber materials may suffer from swelling, cracking and premature aging. Ozone and acid cracking, swelling, and softening are common types of failures that can occur. Swelling of rubber materials can be caused by the hydrocarbon content in the lubricant, while acid cracking can be caused by the acidic nature of the lubricant. Ozone cracking can occur when the lubricant is exposed to high temperatures, such as those found in aircraft engines.
