MAPLUB® SH 101-c

Introduction Low-outgassing grease lubricant for satellite applications. MAPLUB® SH 101-c grease has been specially formulated to meet the constraints imposed on long-life satellite mechanisms. Thus: Its chemical stability with respect to metallic and plastic materials allows its use for very long lifespans. To date, no degradation has been detected. Its low consistency leads to relatively low torques, especially at low temperatures. The MoS2 it contains protects the surfaces of heavily stressed contacts (major slippage or limited speed). Its low vaporisation tendency makes it suitable for various applications operating in particular environments: vacuum equipment (vacuum pumps, etc.), electronics (manufacture of components) and electrical engineering (connections), scientific instrumentation (particle rings, etc.), automotive, aeronautics, nuclear, clean room robots.
Usages MAPLUB® SH 101-c is a grease-type lubricant developed for long-life applications under ultra-high vacuum, especially in the space environment, on supports such as: bearings, spherical bearings, gears, Harmonic Drive or Cyclo reduction gears, roller and ball screws, sliders.
