Based on product type, the North America rail greases market is segmented into lithium grease, calcium grease, and other grease.The lithium grease segment led the rail greases market in 2018.

Lithium grease is multi-purpose grease with a buttery texture and has a dropping point above 350°F.Moreover, it can also be used with occasional temperatures up to 300°F.

Lithium grease has excellent resistance to water and breakdown or softening.Pumpability is a major characteristic of lithium grease.

Pumpability is the ease with which pressurized grease can flow through nozzles, lines, and fittings of grease-dispensing systems. Lithium-based greases are the most commonly used in railway applications due to its higher melting point (dropping point) compared to calcium-based greases. Lithium complex grease is a new type of grease that shows similar characteristics as the simple lithium greases, with improved performance in the area of high temperature and high speed bearing life. The dropping point of lithium complex grease is approximately 500°F. Due to their exceptional properties and high-temperature resistance, lithium greases are used in various parts in railways and trains such as curved tooth coupling, cardan shaft, axle boxes, and brake system.
