Castrol Spheerol SX 2 Calcium Complex Grease


Castrol Spheerol SX 2 is a complex calcium sulphonate grease providing superior performance benefits in the highly aggressive conditions experienced in the marine environment.


Spheerol SX 2 is a true multipurpose ship machinery lubricant, specifically developed to provide enhanced lubrication and protection for bearings, wire ropes and open gears usually found in marine environments. Spheerol SX 2 is suitable for most journal bearings, wire ropes and open gears used in marine deck equipment and can be considered for roller, ball and needle bearings generally used in engine room equipment.

In addition to the excellent protection provided for wire ropes and open gears, Spheerol SX 2 is also suitable for use on a wide range of deck equipment where it will protect and lubricate hinges, turnbuckles, screws, fairleads etc.

For multipurpose applications, a grease gun may be used with Spheerol SX 2. Alternatively, traditional application methods can be used for wire ropes and open gears. (Please see also “Additional Information”).


Castrol Spheerol SX 2 is proven to offer:

  • High drop point.
  • Excellent protection against corrosion.
  • High resistance to seawater wash-off.
  • Strong adhesion to surfaces.
  • A lubricant which is solvent free containing no heavy metals or harmful constituents.

Whilst traditional ways of applying grease on wire ropes can be utilised, use of a proprietary pressurised grease applicator in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions may assist in applying the appropriate quantity of grease and may also help to protect the core of the wire rope.

All packages should be stored under cover. Where outside storage is unavoidable drums should be laid horizontally to avoid the possible ingress of water and the obliteration of drum markings. Products should not be stored above 60°C, or exposed to hot sun or freezing conditions.
