Gear Oil


Petrosynth Supreme Lubricants is Gear Oil manufacturer in UAE. Gear oil is a lubricant made specifically for transmissions, transfer cases, and differentials in automobiles, trucks, and other machinery. Gear oil has high viscosity and usually contains organosulfur compounds. Most lubricants for manual gearboxes and differentials contain extreme pressure (EP) additives and antiwear additives to cope with the sliding action of hypoid bevel gears. Typical additives include dithiocarbamate derivatives and sulfur-treated organic compounds (“sulfurized hydrocarbons”). Gearbox oils are classified by the American Petroleum Institute using GL ratings. The higher an oil’s GL-rating, the more pressure can be sustained without any metal-to-metal contact taking place between transmission components.
