CASTROL TRANSMAX

Castrol TRANSMAX with Smooth Drive Technology™ has been designed to offer smoother driving enabling longer transmission life.

CASTROL TRANSMAX

SMOOTH DRIVE TECHNOLOGY ™ WITH ACTIVE CONTROL MOLECULES

Castrol TRANSMAX with Smooth Drive Technology™ has active control molecules that automatically adjust their friction level with changing pressures and speed. This ensures the transmission is constantly served the right level of friction at any given moment – protecting the parts and delivering a smoother drive for longer.

DEMANDING CONDITIONS

During a typical 10 mile city journey to and from work, on average, a vehicle makes 88,000 gear changes and 18,000 stop-starts each year, placing huge demands on the transmission and transmission fluids. Under these conditions, ordinary transmission fluids can simply wear out, leading to shudder, gear stiffness, axle whining and ultimately, damaged parts.

 

SMOOTH DRIVE TECHNOLOGY 

To respond to these demanding conditions we have designed Castrol TRANSMAX with Smooth Drive Technology. It has active control molecules that automatically adjust their friction level with changing pressures and speed. This ensures the transmission is constantly served the right level of friction at any given moment – protecting the parts and delivering a smoother drive for longer. That’s why, 2 out of every 3 major vehicle manufacturers* choose Castrol transmission fluids as part of their factory fill.
