Castrol Tribol® 3020/1000
Castrol Tribol 3020/1000 Greases with TGOA® were designed for very heavy
duty service in adverse environments. Through their formulation and advanced
TGOA additive system, they are able to withstand the shock and heavy loading
commonly found in the processing of primary metals as well as in cement,
construction, and mining industries. The TGOA additive package out-performs
all other EP and antiwear additives because of its unique action on frictional
Castrol Tribol 3020/1000 Greases with TGOA have a lithium soap thickener.
The base oils are high viscosity petroleum oils forming a stable lube film to
withstand high continuous loads, shock loads, and vibrations.
The TGOA additive package is activated by high specific loads and
corresponding temperatures causing a chemical-physical reaction. This results
in an equalization of surface roughness without creating abrasion.
The results of the TGOA additive can be compared with a rolling process in the
micro-range. The surface roughnesses are gradually leveled and smoothed.
Through smoothing of the working surfaces, the loads are distributed over
increasing areas and the actual load-bearing areas are enlarged.
During the running-in process, the TGOA additive package creates an optimum
of smooth contact surfaces.
If, because of shock loads or stop-and-go operation, surface roughness peaks
redevelop, the TGOA additive package is automatically reactivated. Surface
roughness is again equalized and lubrication optimized.
Corrosion and oxidation inhibitors maximize effective rust protection and long
Typical applications for Castrol Tribol 3020/1000 Greases are in ball and roller
bearings, bushings, slides, couplings (with the exception of high precision
