Transmission

Lubrication solutions designed to help you deliver high-quality transmission-manufacturing performance

Transmission technology is evolving fast – and Castrol is committed to keeping pace. With smaller components being manufactured to even finer tolerances and higher quality within the same production facilities, our Liquid Engineers can offer solutions designed to aid your performance wherever and whenever you’re operating.

Castrol’s Liquid Engineers are focused on offering expertise to help your transmission-manufacturing operations improve product quality, productivity as well as your overall Health, Safety and Environmental (HSE) performance.

By using our extensive understanding of the relationships and interactions between components, tools and metalworking fluids, our specialists can tailor solutions to match your exact needs. 

We know how important it is to have consistent performance across all your global locations, which is why we provide consistent, reliable and trusted guidance on implementing process improvements with best practice.

HSE requirements can vary, so our Liquid Engineers ensure compliant products and solutions which help to reduce your environmental impact.
