CITGO Introduces Aquamarine Grease

Monday, December 23, 2002
CITGO Aquamarine Grease is the latest addition to CITGO Petroleum Corporation’s family of lubricants specifically designed to provide minimal environmental impact when used in offshore or inland waterway operations. Ideal for use on offshore drilling rigs and platforms, lifts and cranes, pile drivers and dredges, the new premium grease is environmentally friendly, has superior adhesion qualities and is highly resistant to Water Wash Out.

Polymer fortified for superior adhesion, CITGO Aquamarine Grease is designed to reliably stay in place on load bearing fittings and connections. Additionally, its exceptional water-resistant qualities and a full additive package help guard against wear, corrosion and oxidation caused by exposure to excess moisture—even in salty environments. CITGO Aquamarine Grease is an Aluminum Complex grease, has an attractive blue color, and provides a 400 kgf Four-Ball Weld Point to provide superior protection when extreme pressure conditions exist. Aquamarine Grease provides the additional benefit of being able to re-thicken, even after being taken to a full melt.

Exposure testing to CITGO Aquamarine Grease shows it has minimal impact on marine life. The environmentally friendly grease meets U.S. EPA LC50 toxicity standards for environmentally sensitive areas. The CITGO Aquamarine Grease can be used in a wide variety of industrial applications. It is available in three container sizes: 14-ounce tubes, 35-pound mails and 400-pound drums.
