Megaplex®XD5 (old)

Extreme Pressure Lithium Complex Grease

Phillips 66®Megaplex XD5 is a high-performance, multipurpose, extreme pressure (EP) lithium complex grease developed to satisfy the severe lubrication requirements of mining and off road equipment manufactured by Caterpillar, Terex, Komatsu Dresser, Le Tourneau, P&H and others. It is particularly recommended for use in AC and DC electric-drive haul trucks, cranes, scrapers, shovels and draglines operating in severe service under heavy or shock loads.

Features & Benefits

• High dropping point (500°F)

• High load-carrying capacity

• Excellent wear protection

• Contains 5% moly for extra protection against galling and wear under shock loads

• Excellent resistance to water washout

• Excellent resistance to separation

• Protects against rust and corrosion


• Chassis parts and wheel bearings on mining and other off-highway equipment

• Hydraulic excavator mining shovels, such as Caterpillar 5100 & 5200 series

• Mine haul trucks

• Heavily-loaded plain and rolling-element bearings in industrial and mobile equipment where the manufacturer specifies a high-temperature, extreme pressure grease with 5% moly
