DRIVELINE FLUIDS

As vehicles are required to carry heavier loads and the need for durability increases, driveline fluids are more and more critical for vehicle reliability. Getting the right oil for your vehicle is key to ensuring your gearboxes and axles operate as they are designed to, and get the maximum protection under demanding conditions.

Castrol, with over 100 years of experience in developing gearbox oils and, being the choice of many leading vehicle and equipment manufacturers for factory-fill products, offers a range of gear oils for your vehicle’s requirements; providing you the peace of mind that you are getting the right oil for your vehicle and keeping your vehicle in operation longer.

FEATURES & BENEFITS

 

  • A range of European OEM approvals
  • High load carrying capability ensures gears operating under high loads are protected prolonging component life.
  • High film strength ensures protection against wear and shock loads.
  • Good thermal/oxidation stability protects against the formation of harmful deposits and oil thickening thus prolonging of both lubricant and components.

CASTROL AXLE LIMITED SLIP 85W-140

CASTROL AXLE LIMITED SLIP 85W-140

(REPLACES LSX 85W-140)

 

Mineral based gear oil for use in limited differentials in cars and commercial vehicles where API GL-5 performance is required; also suitable for use in conventional differentials.

 

May be recommended for use in differentials, gear boxes, and steering gears of many cars, trucks, farm machinery, earthmoving and excavating machinery requiring a hypoid lubricant.

 

It is particularly recommended for conventional hypoid differentials where the differential is operating with very high loads.

 

The higher level of extreme pressure and limited slip additives give added wear protection in both conventional and limited slip hypoid differentials.

 


FEATURES & BENEFITS

 

  • Very good anti-wear and load carrying performance even under high load conditions prolongs component life.
  • High film strength – providing protection against wear.
  • Thermally stable additive chemistry – less sludge and cleaner gears.
  • Anti-weld – high tooth loadings can be tolerated.

FEATURES & BENEFITS

 

  • Significant extension in oil drain interval compared to standard API GL-5 SAE 85W-140 EP gear oils
  • Reduced operating temperatures and extending oil and component life in Rockwell-Meritor axles
  • Synthetically fortified for long drain performance and improved low temperature fluidity while maintaining high temperature viscosity
  • Excellent trouble shooting lubricant for problematic differentials operating in arduous conditions

Castrol Syntrax Universal Plus 75W-90 may be used in synchronized manual transmissions and final drives/differentials of a wide range of vehicles (commercial vehicle, construction equipment, passenger cars) where API GL-4 or GL-5 are required. The product also carries a number of European HD approvals.

 


FEATURES & BENEFITS

 

  • A single product for transmission and final drive.
  • Excellent low temperature fluidity provides improved cold shift quality in cold conditions and fuel efficiency.
  • Superior high temperature stability and excellent wear protection even in the most arduous conditions prolongs equipment life and allows for extended oil drain intervals.

AXLE AP 85W-140

AXLE AP 85W-140

(REPLACES EPX 85W-140)

 

High quality, mineral oil based, multipurpose gear oil for use in most passenger car, light and heavy duty truck conventional differentials, final drives, non-synchronised manual transmissions, steering gears and other applications where API GL-5, API MT-1 or SAE J2360 performance is required.

 

It is not recommended for those manual transmission manufacturers who prefer non EP (Extreme Pressure) additive containing oils.

 

FEATURES & BENEFITS
