Versatile Grease Offers Long-Lasting Protection

With its versatility and long-lasting performance, Almatek® General Purpose Lubricant (1232) increases uptime, reduces maintenance costs and lowers lubrication costs. Almatek 1232 resists washing or pounding out of bearings, chassis points and other applications – even under shock-loading conditions. It is a distinctive red color, which shows when fresh lubricant forces out old material. Almatek 1232 is recommended for use in construction, marine, mining, industrial and various other heavy-duty equipment applications.

Proprietary Additives

N/A LE’s proprietary additives are used exclusively in LE lubricants. Almatek® General Purpose Lubricant contains Almasol.

Almasol® solid wear reducing additive is able to withstand extremely heavy loads, chemical attack and temperatures up to 1,900°F (1,038°C). It is attracted to metal surfaces, forming a microscopic layer but not building on itself or affecting clearances. Almasol minimizes metal-to-metal contact and the resulting friction, heat and wear.
