The 360 series was developed to be used in various applications such as bearings, sliding surfaces, gear trains, and electrical components. As the product line developed over the years, the 380 series was developed for power tools, automotive starters, gears, and heavily loaded mechanical devices.
The 380 series utilizes a soap thickened synthetic hydrocarbon/ester grease base that is fortified with various additives.
The 730 series is comprised of clay thickened synthetic hydrocarbon greases designed for gear boxes, applications requiring low torque, and instrument motor gear trains.
The 789 series consists of clay thickened ester greases which were developed to have higher thermal stability than the 730 series. The main applications for the 789 series are instrument motor gear trains, roller element bearings, and gear trains.
Also included in the Rheolube product line is the 2000 series which was specifically developed for instruments and bearings in aerospace and vacuum applications. These greases consist of multiply alkylated cyclopentane thickened with a sodium soap complex.
The 774 series consists of silica thickened synthetic hydrocarbon of various viscosities depending upon how much mechanical dampening is required of various components. The damping greases also provide good water resistance.
The 756 series utilizes a silica thickened hydrocarbon that includes the incorporation of carbon black since it was designed to be electrically conductive for instrument and bearing applications.
UniFlor™- PFPE Lubricants
Available in a variety of viscosities, from very light for low-temperature, low-torque applications to very viscous for use as sealants or in more heavily loaded applications, PFPEs can be used “neat” as lubricating oils or combined with thickeners, typically polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), to make a variety of PFPE greases.
PFPEs are well suited for demanding environments. They can withstand temperatures from –90°C to +250°C, and even higher spikes. Extremely inert, they don’t crack, craze, discolor, or dissolve plastics, nor do they swell, shrink, or embrittle natural rubber or other elastomers. Non-flammable, they also
resist harsh chemicals, fuel oil, and brake fluids. And because of their low volatility they are often the lubricants of choice for high-vacuum environments.

Pennzane™ - MACs
Developed by Shell Global Solutions and now distributed worldwide exclusively by Nye Lubricants as a family of Pennzane-based oils and greases in a range of viscosities, for use in environments requiring low volatility, wide viscosity range, and performance additive flexibility. Nye was the first manufacturer to formulate and commercialize lubricants with Pennzane fluids and since the 1990s has worked with NASA scientists to test the properties of Pennzane fluids.
