Although NSK procures Japan-made grease for clients around the world, we will be able to more rapidly respond to the diverse needs of our customers by making available a selection of our proprietary greases designed to meet the unique requirements of maintenance and repair work of rolling bearings in industrial machinery.
The lineup, which features lithium-soap thickened, mineral oil-based grease, includes two multi-purpose greases designed for use under normal operating conditions and one grease designed for heavy-load scenarios. The NSK Grease lineup is characterized by excellent water-resistance, excellent corrosion-resistance, low-evaporation, and a wide functional temperature range (-10 to 110?). Designed in Japan with product planning by our Singapore division, the lineup will first be available in ASEAN/Oceania countries, with worldwide availability soon to follow.

Best Product Launch Award category recognizes the most innovative product launched during 2015/2016 and NSK was amongst four finalists. According to the organizer, this is the first time a bearing manufacturer has received such recognition.
NSK Long Life Sealed Spherical Roller Bearings are designed to operate in heavily contaminated conveyor puller applications, extending component life, as well as featuring an easy installation process.
Offering perfect compatibility with conventional products as it conform to ISO dimensions, this new product uses NSK's long-life materials technology and special heat treatment to offer equivalent or better load capacity for the same size as the conventional products.
The world's first spherical roller bearing equipped with a detachable seal, delivers outstanding sealing performance against foreign substance intrusion. The bolt-fastened seal holder in the design makes it possible to remove the seal during assembly and measure the clearance. This enables the prevention of damage such as flaking and seizing due to incorrect clearance during installation.
