PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

AMSOIL Synthetic Gear Lubes are extreme pressure lubricants engineered specifically to meet the high temperature/high load demands of today's geared equipment. AMSOIL Synthetic Gear Lubes, unlike conventional lubricants, don't break down in extreme heat and form damaging deposits, varnish and sludge. AMSOIL Synthetic Gear Lubes maintain their protective capability even in thermally stressed conditions, preventing the ridging, rippling and spalling caused by surface distress. In addition, the superior lubricity of AMSOIL Synthetic Gear Lubes improves fuel economy and provides limited slip capability.

Resist Oxidation and Thermal Breakdown

AMSOIL Synthetic Gear Lubes resist the damaging effects of heat and oxidation at temperatures much higher than conventional gear lubes can resist. AMSOIL Synthetic Gear Lubes inhibit the formation of acids and will not thicken or develop sludge, even under severe operating temperatures such as those encountered in heavy hauling and fleet operation.

Reduce Friction

AMSOIL Synthetic Gear Lubes have an extremely low coefficient of friction due to its synthetic construction. With reduced friction, excessive operating temperatures in transmissions and differentials are reduced by 20F to 50F. By controlling friction, AMSOIL Synthetic Gear Lubes reduce component wear, resist thermal degradation and improve fuel economy up to five percent.

Provide Low Temperature Protection

AMSOIL Synthetic Gear Lubes remain fluid at extremely low temperatures to provide instant lubrication to components during start-up. In low temperatures, conventional gear lubricants thicken to make shifting difficult. At temperatures of 0F (-18C), it can take as long as 18 minutes for gear lube to flow and lubricate the front pinion bearing of a differential. AMSOIL 75W-90 only takes 45 seconds to 2 minutes. AMSOIL Synthetic Gear lubes resist low temperature thickening to provide superior component protection, smoother shifting and increased fuel economy.

Protect Against Rust and Corrosion

Moisture penetration can cause the rusting of gears and bearings. AMSOIL Synthetic Gear Lubes coat components with a durable, protective film to prevent the formation of harmful rust or corrosion.

High Load Carrying Capacity

AMSOIL Synthetic Gear Lubes have excellent load carrying capabilities to protect gear surfaces in high load and speed conditions. They maintain their viscosity when exposed to the extreme shearing forces of hypoid differentials. AMSOIL Synthetic Gear Lubes provide an extra margin of protection that effectively increases gear life.

Proved Seal Compatibility

AMSOIL Synthetic Gear Lubes increase seal life and reduce oil leakage due to pressure build-up. They are compatible with the elastomer materials used to make seals and will not cause excessive swelling, shrinkage or hardening.

Protect Against Surface Distress

AMSOIL Synthetic Gear Lubes are thermally durable to protect gears against surface distress in extreme pressure conditions. They provide a tough lubricating film that resists the wear, pitting and spalling caused by surface distress. With their superior film protection, AMSOIL Synthetic Gear Lubes maintain their extreme pressure additives to increase component life.

Inhibit Foaming

AMSOIL Synthetic Gear Lubes contain special anti-foam additives to inhibit the formation of air bubbles in the gear box. When foaming is controlled, lubricant circulation and load-carrying ability are improved.

SERVICE LIFE

With their chemically advanced formulation, AMSOIL Synthetic Gear Lubes last longer than conventional petroleum gear lubes. In non-commercial passenger vehicles under normal conditions, AMSOIL Synthetic Gear Lubes do not have to be drained. In situations where severe water and/or dirt contamination occurs, a chemical lube analysis can determine if the gear lube is still serviceable. Also, AMSOIL Synthetic Gear Lubes can be recycled along with used motor oil because they contain no chlorine.

APPLICATION

AMSOIL 75W-90, 80W-90 AND 85W-140 Gear Lubes exceed the lubrication and performance requirements for gear boxes where API MT-1, GL-4 or GL-5 lubricants are specified. AMSOIL Synthetic Gear Lubes provide limited slip performance. Although generally not necessary, manufacturers' limited slip additives may be used in conjunction with AMSOIL Synthetic Gear Lube.

After changing a vehicle's limited slip lubricant, drive the vehicle in a tight "figure 8" pattern (lock to lock turns) for a minimum of eight repetitions.

AMSOIL 80W-90 GL-4 Gear Lube is recommended for marine outboard and stern drive lower unit gears and bearings. It is also recommended where the manufacturer specifies GL-4 performance. AMSOIL 80W-90 GL-4 Gear Lube is not recommended as a replacement for API GL-5 products.

Series 2000 Synthetic Gear Lube

Gear Lube  

AMSOIL Series 2000 Synthetic 75W-90 Gear Lube delivers unbeatable protection and fuel economy. It has the film strength required to deliver all the protection heavy-duty and high-stress applications need in a fuel-saving viscosity grade. Recommended for use in all passenger vehicles, commercial trucks and race vehicles. Product Code: TGR

Provides superior lubrication, protection, and fuel economy in racing and commercial applications

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

AMSOIL Series 2000 Synthetic Gear Lube is a race-proven extreme pressure lubricant engineered to meet the severe high-load and high-temperature demands of contemporary race and commercial vehicle differentials and gear-lube equipped transmissions. It provides the superior friction, heat and load control demanded by race drivers, the superior fuel economy required by commercial vehicle operators and the superior performance sought by all motorists.

Friction Reduction and Fuel Economy

AMSOIL Series 2000 Synthetic Gear Lube offers an exceptionally low coefficient of friction for superior power transfer, heat control and fuel economy.

In fact, independent testing shows class 8 vehicles with AMSOIL Series 2000 Synthetic 75W-90 Gear Lube in the differentials obtained up to 4.83 percent more mpg than vehicles equipped with another popular gear lube.

High Load and Extreme Pressure Performance

AMSOIL Series 2000 Synthetic Gear Lube promotes long life for gears, including those subject to high loads and severe service. The superior film strength of its synthetic basestock ensures protection from wear for gears operating with full-film lubrication. Top-quality extreme pressure agents ensure protection from wear for gears operating without full-film lubrication.

High Temperature Performance

AMSOIL Series 2000 Synthetic Gear Lube offer the thermal stability and durability, oxidation resistance and shear stability required for optimal protection in the hot environments in which race and commercial vehicle gears operate. Thermal stability and oxidation resistance keep gears and seals clean by inhibiting the heat-induced formation of sludge and deposits. Thermal durability protects gears from physical damage by preventing heat-induced failure of anti-wear chemistry. Shear stability helps prevent metal-to-metal contact and wear in high-temperature operations.

Low Temperature Protection

AMSOIL Series 2000 Synthetic Gear Lube is ideally suited for low temperature applications (see graph). Its low temperature fluidity ensures excellent low temperature performance, protection and fuel economy.

Seal Compatibility and Rust and Foam Inhibition

AMSOIL Series 2000 Synthetic Gear Lube forms a barrier on gear surfaces that seals out water to inhibit rust and corrosion. Foam inhibitors ensure protection in conditions that favor lubricant foaming and consequent metal-to-metal contact and wear.

AMSOIL Series 2000 Synthetic Gear Lube has been shown to help seals perform better and last longer.
