Why Choose NEO Synthetics Gear Oils?
The automotive and race vehicles manufactured today all require gearing of some kind to allow the transfer of the engine’s horsepower to the drive wheels. Generally, the gear types are spiral bevel and hypoid. An important feature of gear lubrication is that the contact between the lubricated surface is intermittent, permitting them to be flooded with fresh lubricant between the contacts of the gears. The major function of gear oil, transmission, and axles oils is to provide protection to the moving parts.
NEO Synthetic Oil has been manufacturing gear oils for years, especially for high-performance applications worldwide. NEO gear oil is a blend of PAO and Ester technology with top-shelf additives that provide outstanding thermal stability, lubricity, anti-wear agents, and superior wear protection. NEO gear oils can be used in transmissions, transaxles, and differentials from F-1, IRL, NASCAR, OFFROAD, outdrives for offshore racing boats, or your everyday street car or truck.
NEO gear oils are desirable in high-temperature, high-load applications due to their increased ability to resist oxidation and thermal degradation. They can also handle a broader range of ambient temperatures while maintaining viscosity. As a general rule, high-viscosity oils are best for low-speed loaded gears with rough surfaces. Higher viscosity provides a thicker film, higher wear resistance, and less deformation of the gears as time goes on.
Low-viscosity oils are best for high-speed systems and high-load systems, such as in racing. They provide a thinner film for better cooling and less drag in gearboxes, transmissions, and differentials.
A number of advantages are associated with the use of NEO synthetic gear oil:
- Better low-temperature properties
- Improved viscometrics at high temperature (high VI)
- Improved thermal and oxidative stability
- Lower volatility
- Higher efficiency
- Multiple viscosity grades available
- Private label packaging available
In automotive gears, the following application advantages should result from NEO synthetic oils as compared to mineral oils:
- Extended service life
- Less varnish and sludge
- Extended bearing life
- Improved seal life
- Improved fuel efficiency
- Improvement in low-temperature performance
