Chevron has unveiled Rykon, a new overbased calcium sulfonate complex grease, to its recently refreshed line of products.

Rykon is a high-performance grease that increases uptime and helps enhance durability for the next generation of equipment

It's designed to:

  • Increase equipment longevity.
  • Extend lubrication intervals.
  • Reduce the total cost of equipment ownership.

Meeting Industry Demands

The calcium sulfonate complex-based grease is designed for heavy-duty and extreme pressure applications.

It also provides an alternative option to lithium-based thickeners, which have become widely expensive due to rising global demand.

Rykon will round out Chevron’s grease offerings with a grease formulated for heavy-duty and extreme pressure applications.

“By introducing Rykon to our grease portfolio, we are offering a new solution for high-pressure applications and ensuring customers have a high-performance grease when they need it,” Chevron Lubricants Industrial Sector Specialist Zach Sutton said. “As demand for raw materials grows, we remain committed to finding solutions like Rykon that will exceed the demands of machinery and equipment today and tomorrow.”

The overbased calcium sulfonate complex grease delivers oxidation and thermal stability with superior water performance to protect equipment from failures and downtime.

Rykon also meets the demands of high pressure and shock loads, providing wear protection under heavy loads and in high ambient temperatures.

Rykon will also feature the new grease branding and packaging, part of a recent brand refresh for Chevron’s grease portfolio announced in March 2023.
