Multiplex®Red (old)

Multipurpose Extreme-Pressure Lithium Complex Grease

Phillips 66®Multiplex Red is a high-performance, multipurpose, extreme pressure (EP) lithium complex grease developed for the lubrication of automotive and industrial equipment operating under heavy loads and at moderate to high temperatures. It is particularly recommended for use in applications that are too severe or require higher performance than that provided by conventional extreme-pressure lithium greases.

Features & Benefits

• Excellent high-temperature performance

• Outstanding wear protection

• High load-carrying capacity

• Excellent resistance to water washout

• Protects against rust and corrosion

• Good low-temperature pumpability

• NLGI GC-LB certified (Grades No. 1 and No. 2)


• Wheel bearings of passenger cars, trucks, high-performance vehicles, sport utility vehicles and motorcycles, particularly vehicles with disc brakes

• Ball joints, universal joints, other chassis parts and water pumps on passenger cars, trucks and other mobile equipment

• Heavily-loaded plain and rolling-element bearings in industrial, mining and mobile equipment
