Nulon Full Synthetic 75W-85 Smooth Shift Manual Gearbox & Transaxle Oil (SYN75W85) is an extreme pressure API GL-4 fully synthetic gear oil, with superior high temperature stability when compared to conventional mineral gear oils. Ideal for use in transaxle applications with combined manual gearbox and differential.

Nulon SYN75W85 is formulated using hydrofinished base fluids with superior additive packages to enhance wear protection, corrosion protection, seal compatibility and low temperature characteristics. The optimized formulation has maximum oxidation and thermal stability to ensure fluid durability and performance during its life time.

The hydrofinished base oils used in SYN75W85 are Very High Viscosity Index (VHVI) base fluids that have advantages of low volatility for better oil consumption, low wax content for improved low temperature fluidity, high saturates level for excellent thermal and oxidation stability, and low sulphur and aromatic compounds for improved environmental outcomes.

Nulon SYN75W85 is designed mainly for manual transmission and transaxle application where API GL-4 is recommended. It is intended for use in axles with spiral bevel gears under moderate to severe speed and load conditions. It can also be used for axles with hypoid gears under moderate speeds and load conditions. Nulon SYN75W85 may be used in selected manual transmission and transaxle applications where API MT-1 lubricants are not suitable.

Benefits

  • Reduces gearshift baulking in cold temperatures

  • High thermal and oxidation stability for longer oil life
  • Superior oil film strength for excellent protection
  • Improved low temperature performance
  • High viscosity index for better performance at high operating temperature
  • Good corrosion protection and rust prevention for longer component life

FAQs

Is an API GL5 gear oil better than a API GL4 gear oil?

No, the API GL5 rating does not supercede or cover the GL4 rating. It is important to follow the gearbox or diff manufacturers recommendations and use the correct GL rating.

Synthetic base oils have a number of advantages over mineral base oils. The uniformity of the synthetic oil molecules improves the thermal stability and reduces oxidation of the oil. Controlled molecular structure also results in lower volatility and a more stable vicosity over the life of the oil.
