Customer Benefits

  • Minimizes fleet maintenance costs
    Unique borate additive system significantly reduces friction, resulting in cooler operating temperatures, reduced wear and longer life of bearings and seals. 
  • Minimizes fleet operating costs 
    Outstanding thermal and oxidation stability extends oil drain capability to more than twice the length of conventional gear oils, even under extreme service conditions. Special low friction properties contribute to reduced fuel consumption
  • Extends equipment life 
    Patented borate EP technology creates an anti-wear film 3 to 5 times thicker than conventional EP additives, providing exceptional protection and longer gear life.


Delo Gear ESI are premium grade automotive gear lubricants.They are formulated with ISOSYN® Technology and compounded with a unique extreme pressure additive utilizing an inorganic borate compound. They also contain a patented, synergistic combination of additives that protect against wear, seizure, oxidation, corrosion, rust, and foam.


  • Automotive differentials operating in severe service conditions. Particularly recommended for heavy-duty road transport axles exposed to extreme loads and temperatures
  • Heavy-duty non-synchronized transmissions where the manufacturer recommends the use of API GL-5 or MT-1 gear lubricants
  • Extended drain gear oil applications in on-road and off-road heavy-duty equipment

Always confirm that the product selected is consistent with the original equipment manufacturer’s recommendation for the equipment operating conditions and customer’s maintenance practices.
