  • Fully-synthetic formulas created from polyol ester base stocks, offer excellent lubrication under extreme conditions
  • Ester base stocks and friction modifiers (except NS) provide additional slipperiness to lower operating temperatures by reducing the sliding friction in hypoid gears
  • High viscosity-index (VI) to provide relatively constant viscosity and film thickness with varying temperature change
  • Superior shear stability and reduced oxidation compared to other synthetics and conventional gear oils
  • Exceed API GL-5 specifications
  • Engineered to provide the highest degree of protection and improvement of differential efficiency for better mileage, longer drain intervals, and less wear
