Hong Kong 8 March 2004 – Continuing its endeavor in innovating super grease technology, Omega, the lubrication division of Magna Industrial Co. Limited, today launches a new grease – Omega 78 Food Grade Anti-Corrosion Grease.
Omega 78 is superiorly formulated to become the genuine multipurpose grease. It is the most relevant state-of-the-art lubrication solution that has been sought for years by industries and maintenance professionals around the world.
Other premium greases such as lithium complex, aluminum complex and polyurea types, popular in the past decades, are now outperformed by this newest breakthrough in grease technology – Calcium Sulfonate Complex – the formulation basis of Omega 78.
Omega 78, with its calcium sulfonate technology, outperforms other greases in properties like dropping point, water resistance, oxidation & corrosion resistance, mechanical stability and oil separation.
One of the most outstanding properties of Omega 78 is the unique crystalline calcite structure which ensures excellent lubrication and protection to equipment. Thanks to the smart and technologically advanced utilization of the calcite formation leading to a “fish-scale” like coating, that resists water washout and high load.
With its excellent performance characteristics at elevated temperatures and exceptional EP (extreme pressure) and corrosion protection, Omega 78 has proven its versatile applications in most major industries and abundant innovative areas.
Engineers, maintenance professionals and lubrication specialists will prefer to use Omega 78 in food processing plants, automotive industries, paper mills, steel mills, mining industries, nuclear plants, offshore drilling and all kinds of marine applications.
“Omega symbolizes our vision to provide technological innovations for the ultimate benefits of end-users in industries,” said Mr. Sudhir Sthalekar, Chief Executive & General Manager, Magna Industrial Co. Limited. “The new Omega 78 Food Grade Anti-Corrosion Grease, with its technological breakthrough, is going to scale new heights for Omega in 2004.”
“Omega 78 is a proven super grease bringing multiple and revolutionary benefits to engineers and lubrication technicians. It lubricates possibly the widest spectrum of industries, and its food grade formulation gives it a superior edge in safety,” commented Mr. Ricky Ho, Director, Technical Services Department.
“We are excited to launch the new Omega 78, trusting it’s excellent physical properties in outperforming other technologies. With our conscientious field testing and encouraging market response, it will undoubtedly reinforce our strong foothold in the global premium MRO markets,” said Mr. C.K. Leung, Sales & Marketing Manager.
