I just ordered some of this to use on roller bearings on a blower. I just replaced the bearings with timken units and timken uses its own polyurea grease in them but I can't get it easily through my vendors. I noticed while reading mobils site about this grease that it is compatable with Exonmobil lithium complex greases as well as competitors polyurea greases. It doesn't say it is compatable with competitors lithium complex greases.

I thought lithiumcomplex and polyurea didn't mix? What are they doing different with this grease to make it compatable?

I've always seen polrex em used as a go to grease for electric motor bearing. Haven't seen it used on much else.

Electric motors is its main use but it is also used in a lot of bearings on fans and blowers. Same type of bearings and same stresses for the most part.
