Shell Lubricant Solutions has announced its Shell Gadus S3 V220C 2 grease is now certified against the NLGI High-Performance Multiuse (HPM) certification, in addition to its previously held NLGI GC–LB performance classification. The company claims this makes it the world’s first dual-certified grease. Shell Gadus S3 V220C 2 grease has also obtained the +HL tag for enhanced level of performance in the heavy load carrying capacity category.

Shell Gadus S3 V220C 2 grease’s HPM certification guarantees consistency, because the rigorous qualification testing the process of certification takes. The HPM Grease Certification programme ensures that all certified greases meet or surpass the High-Performance Multiuse grease specification requirements in the areas of mechanical stability, oil separation, water resistance, heat tolerance, corrosion resistance and load carry capacity. The product is audited every year and tests are repeated annually to maintain the certification and customers’ confidence.

“We’re thrilled to share that all customers, worldwide, can be sure they are using the most powerful, high-quality grease that offers unmatched versatility and performance,” said Greg Morris, product application specialist for greases at Shell Americas. “This certification is truly a testament to Shell’s diligence and commitment to staying at the forefront of innovation for our customers.”
