Product Information

AeroShell Fluid 3 is inhibited against oxidation and corrosion. It is a relatively low viscosity product with good resistance to evaporation.


AeroShell Fluid 3 is recommended for general lubrication of aircraft parts that require a light oil, e.g. hinges, pivot joints, shaft joints, linkage pins and bearings, pulleys, cables, camera mechanisms, radio and radar gear and instruments. AeroShell Fluid 3 is normally applied by means of an oil can or brush. For this reason it is also described as 'an oilcan lubricant'.

Operating temperature range of AeroShell Fluid 3 is –54°C to +121°C (–65°F to 250°F).

For high temperature applications where no provision is made for frequent relubrication the synthetic oil, AeroShell Fluid 12, should be used in place of the mineral oil, AeroShell Fluid 3; however in this case care should be taken to ensure that there is no incompatibility between AeroShell Fluid 12 and seals, paints etc.
