Engine technology advances have been the greatest driver of change when it comes to lubricants. With lower speeds and higher torques, lubricants need to work harder to protect against wear and maintain efficiency.
This is especially true when it comes to axles. More stress, less lubricant, reduced air circulation and higher temperatures can lead to compromised lubricant film strength. Because viscosity characteristics change under fluctuating temperature and operating conditions, maintaining stability and resistance to shear is vital.
This breakthrough solution is designed to assist the formulation of a wide variety of driveline lubricants and achieve the ideal balance between gear oil handling characteristics and cost. HiTEC® 33200 is designed to:
Maintain the viscosity requirements of high-performance gear oils
Provide an effective alternative to poly-isobutylene-based thickeners
Offer a lower-cost alternative to high-viscosity PAOs
Meet low-temperature viscosity needs
Provide an ideal solution for heavy-duty axle and transmission applications calling for SAE 75W-90 and SAE 50 lubricants
Provide an ideal solution for light-duty truck and SUV applications calling for SAE 75W-85 or SAE 75W-90 lubricants
