Aeroshell Fluid 3 is a general purpose mineral lubricating oil recommended for general lubrication of aircraft parts
that require a light oil with good low temperature characteristics and a low freezing point.
It is inhibited against oxidation and corrosion. Aeroshell Fluid 3 is a relatively low viscosity product with good resistance
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.”
The operating temperature range of Aeroshell Fluid 3 is -54 ºC to +121 ºC.
For high temperature applications where no provision is made for frequent re-lubrication 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.
