Extreme pressure gear oils (API GL-3, GL-4, GL-5, SAE J2360) contain specific additive formulas designed to provide long term wear protection.
GearMaxx is a commercial additive package designed to blend with these oils to complement and enhance the protection of equipment under difficult performance requirements where the oil alone proves inadequate. Conventional EP additives generally require elevated temperatures to initiate their film strength. The enhanced high strength protective film becomes much less temperature dependent when using GearMaxx; providing better protection on start up and in cold weather applications.
GearMaxx is compatible with mineral based (Group II +III) and synthetic-based polyalphaolefin and diester (Group IV) gear oils. GearMaxx is not recommended for use with water based fluids, phosphate esters or polyglycol fluids. GearMaxx: Use with SAE J2360, API GL-3, GL-4, and GL5 gear oils 5% GearMaxx to oil volume ratio is the recommended concentration for most applications. Oil monitoring is highly recommended when using concentrations greater than 5% Gear Maxx.
