GL-4

High Quality Extreme Pressure Hypoid Gear Oils
PETRONAS GL-4 oils are high quality, thermally stable, mild-extreme pressure automotive hypoid gear oils formulated to exceed the API GL-4 performance level.
It is designed and manufactured from premium quality base oils and carefully selected additives system to provide high level of protection for hypoid gears and other heavily loaded gears, in general, where API GL-4 performance is required.
Customer Benefits
  • High load carrying ability - the special high performance EP additives systme provide high level of protection against gear tooth wear and scoring.
  • Superior thermal and oxidation stability - the highly refined base oil and special inhibitor system provide superior oxidation stability to high temperature oil degradation and oil thickening to ensure deposit do not form around seal and helps maintain clean bearing surfaces to minimize wear.
  • Non-corrosive to steel - the special mild-extreme pressure additives and corrosion inhibitor system is non-corrosive towards sensitive copper alloy components and protects ferrous metals against rusting in the presence of moisture.
