EPX 80W-90 and EPX 85W-140 are extreme pressure, multigrade gear lubricants designed for service in gearboxes, differentials and final drives, requiring a hypoid or extreme pressure lubricant.
EPX 80W-90 and EPX 85W-140 were developed for the lubrication of spiral bevel and hypoid differentials, but are also suitable for the lubrication of manual transmissions where the manufacturer recommends the use of an oil to API GL5.
These oils meets the requirements of:
• ZF TE-ML 05A,16B,17B,19B (SAE 80W-90).
• ZF TE-ML 05A,16D,19B (SAE 85W-140).
EPX 80W-90 and EPX 85W-140 provide excellent protection to gears operating under the most severe service conditions and over a wide range of operating temperatures. They are designed to withstand high rubbing speeds and tooth pressures normally associated with hypoid gear sets, preventing welding, scuffing and galling of the gear teeth at their contact points.
EPX 80W-90 and EPX 85W-140 have excellent resistance to oxidation, thermal stability and offer good corrosion protection and anti-foaming properties. Load carrying performance to API GL-5 provides excellent protection
to gears operating under the most severe service conditions prolonging the life of components. Multigrade characteristics give wide operating temperature range with particular benefits in low
