Shell Gadus S3 V220C greases are premium multi-purpose greases based on high viscosity index mineral oil
and a lithium complex soap thickener. They contain the latest additives to offer excellent high temperature
oxidation performance and other additives to enhance its anti-oxidation, anti-wear and anti-corrosion properties.
Shell Gadus S3 V220C greases are especially suitable for bearings operating at high temperature and under
Performance, Features & Benefits

Health, Safety & Environment
Health and Safety
Shell Gadus S3 V220C 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.
Protect the Environment
Take used oil to an authorised collection point. Do not discharge into drains, soil or water.
Operating temperature range -200C to 1400C (peak 1500C)
For bearings operating near their maximum recommended temperatures, re-greasing intervals should be reviewed.
