HiTEC® 5760 viscosity improver is a highly shear stable viscosity improver specifically designed for gear oils. This product has been used to replace high viscosity synthetic base oils in heavily loaded applications such as axle fluids. HiTEC® 5760 viscosity improver is also an effective alternative to poly isobutylene based thickeners. HiTEC® 5760 viscosity improver contains no diluent oil, and is suitable for use in formulations meeting SAE J 2360 and MACK GO-J.
Depending on the application, base oil, and viscosity targets, dosages up to 78% may be used in gear and transmission fluids.
Low shear is observed in most formulations using standard industry tests. The suitability for this technology in gear applications has been seen in field evaluations, and also in proprietary rig tests.
