Extreme Pressure, “Long Drain” Automotive Gear Oil

Customer Benefits
  • Extended oil drain intervals Special frictional properties significantly lower axle running temperatures for cooler operation and less heat stress on the oil. Thermally stable EP system provides improved protection against pitting and wear, enabling extended drain capability compared with alternative technology oils.
  • Associated fuel savings Special frictional properties give rise to improved axle efficiency with demonstrated fuel economy benefits under controlled conditions.
  • Long gear life Thermally stable EP system limits corrosion of copper-containing bearings and bushings and provides improved steel pitting protection under severe conditions. The EP system also provides superior anti-wear protection of gear teeth, even under low speed, high torque and shock loading conditions.
