Gear Oil ZF SAE 80W-90

Gear Oil ZF SAE 80W-90

“Limited Slip” Automotive Gear Oil

High performance, EP automotive gear oil specifically designed for “limited slip” rear drive differentials, particularly those of ZF design with multiplate clutches. Its special friction properties help to provide smooth, noise free operation of and extended life of these units.

Customer Benefits

• Maximizes transmission life

Extremely shear stable viscosity index improver does not break down under the high shear stresses of modern transmissions, ensuring that oil viscosity and fluid film thickness are sufficient for effective protection of gears against wear and scuffing. Mild extreme pressure additives provide the load carrying capacity necessary to minimize wear of transmission components under all service conditions.


• Easy gear selection

Special combination of friction modifiers, additives and viscosity produce correct frictional characteristics, allowing synchronizer rings and cones to engage properly and enabling light and easy gear shifting and unsurpassed noise control.


• Saves on maintenance

Highly refined base oils and effective oxidation inhibitors impart excellent thermal and oxidation stability, providing superior resistance to the formation of lacquer, deposits and corrosive acid by-products.


• Long fluid service life

High oxidation stability resists oil degradation and protects against oil thickening and acidity increase.


High performance, highly shear stable, multigrade manual transmission fluid specifically designed for Asian passenger car manual transmissions and transaxles. It may also be used in other manual transmissions fitted to modern passenger car and light commercial vehicles.


• Japanese and Korean passenger car and light commercial vehicle manual transmissions and transaxles

Not recommended for use in heavy-duty truck and bus manual transmissions, or in spiral bevel or hypoid drive axles where API GL-4 or GL-5 type gear lubricants are specified.
