Shell Gadus S2 V220 greases are high quality multipurpose, extreme-pressure greases based on a blend of high viscosity index mineral oils and a lithium hydroxystearate soap thickener and contain extreme-pressure and other proven additives to enhance their performance in a wide range of applications.
Shell Gadus S2 V220 greases are designed for multipurpose grease lubrication of rolling element and plain
bearings as well as hinges and sliding surfaces such as those found in throughout most industrial and transport
Performance, Features & Benefits
- Outstanding Load Carrying Capacity
Shell Gadus S2 V220 greases contain special extremepressure additives which enable them to withstand heavy
and shock loads without failure of the lubricant film.
- Improved Mechanical Stability
This is particularly important in vibrating environments where poor mechanical stability can lead to grease softening with subsequent loss of lubrication performance and leakage.
- Good Resistance to Water Wash-out
Shell Gadus S2 V220 greases have been formulated to offer resistance to water wash-out.
Specially selected base oil components have excellent oxidation resistance. Their consistency will not alter in
storage and they withstand high operating temperatures without hardening or forming bearing deposits.
- Good Corrosion Resistance Characteristics
Shell Gadus S2 V220 greases reliably protect bearing surfaces against corrosion, even when a high amount of
water is present.
Shell Gadus S2 V220 2 greases are designed for:
- Heavy duty bearings and general industrial lubrication.
- Heavy duty plain and rolling element bearings operating under harsh conditions including shock loading in wet environments.

Health, Safety & Environment
Shell Gadus S2 V220 Grease is unlikely to present any significant health or safety hazard when properly used in the recommended application and good standards of personal hygiene are maintained. Avoid contact with skin. Use impervious gloves with used oil. After skin contact, wash immediately with soap and water.
- Hydraulic Brake Rubber Components
Care should be taken to ensure that the grease does NOT come into contact with hydraulic brake rubber components.
Take used oil to an authorised collection point. Do not discharge into drains, soil or water.
Shell Gadus S2 V220 2 is recommended for the operating temperature range -200C to +1300C.
For bearings operating near their maximum recommended temperatures, re-greasing intervals should be reviewed.
