Oils for manual gearbox
Transmission oils for manual gearbox
Recent developments in transmission designs have significantly increased the demands on transmission oils, which must now provide higher performance and improved efficiency. Anti-friction properties, wear protection, thermal and oxidative stability, corrosion protection, shear stability and seal protection are properties that must be optimally balanced for extended gear and seal life, smooth operation, increased fuel economy, operate under high load and higher torque in a wide range of applications.
Premium gear oils are designed to provide exceptional performance and reduce the cost associated with the use of lubricants in modern transmissions. These oils are designed for heavily loaded manual gearboxes and rear axles, which require transmission oils with excellent carrying capacity over a wide temperature range, where extreme pressures and shock loads are expected.
