I require to use a grease that meets the following criteria: • Use a good quality E.P. extreme pressure grease Timken Test Load - 50 lbs. / 23 kg. minimum, and that • Meets N.L.G.I. National Lubricating Grease Institute Grade 2 specifications, and has an • Operating range of +325° F to -10° F 163° C to - 23° C, which is • Compatible with commonly used multi-purpose greases. Does L11404 meet the above?

I forwarded your grease requirements to my contact at Plews Edelman, the our grease supplier, and he recommended the LubriMatic LMX Industrial Strength Grease, # L11390. This grease was designed for extreme pressure, meets the NLGI number 2 specification, has a drop point of 510 degrees F and will work in below freezing temperatures. We offer this grease in a 14 oz cartridge that fits standard grease guns like part # L30200.

This is not a marine grease, but it is highly water insoluble to resist water better than standard grease and it uses a lithium complex formula.
