Chemtura calcium sulfonate complex grease (G-2000 series) products are developed by complexing modified overbased calcium sulfonates.  Characterized by its exceptional mechanical stability, high dropping point, high load carrying performance, reduced wear, and excellent resistance to water and corrosion, this patented technology equals or outperforms other premium, high temperature greases.  Chemtura calcium sulfonate complex greases are ideal for use in applications where washout resistance, anti-wear and rust protection, thermal stability, and oxidation stability are of key importance.  Some of G-2000 series products are also certified for H1 Incidental Food Contact as well as Kosher and Halal, making them the highest performance food grade greases available.
“Extending our partnership with Chemtura further positions ChemPoint as a full-service, high-performance grease provider,” commented Faris Mehdi, Business Director for ChemPoint’s Industrial Group. “Chemtura is a tremendous partner, and our partnership allows ChemPoint to support the market and the full range of specialty and high-demand grease applications.”
