Castrol Tribol® 1100 Gear Oils
Castrol Tribol® 1100 Gear Oils with the TGOA addtive system represent a
singnificant advancement in gear oil technology. Developed for service in
enclosed gear drives, journals, and antifriction bearings, Castrol Tribol® 1100
Gear Oils are typically used where heavy and shock load conditions prevail.
Castrol Tribol® 1100 Gear Oils are manufactured from the highest quality
pretroleum base oils. Blended into this oil is the latest developement in the filed
of surface improving additives designated TGOA. TGOA is an oil soluble
additive package designed to reduce friction while providing surface protection
and improvement. The TGOA additive package offers superior performance
because of its unique action on frictional surfaces.
TGOA works by establishing a highly protective metal rich lubricating film. This
film is formed by the reaction of TGOA additives due to frictional heat and the
catalytic action of metallic surfaces. The results are a smoothing of surface
roughness without creating abrasion. Therefore, surface roughnesses are
reduced without the usual loss of surface material.
The results of the TGOA process can be compared with a rolling process in the
micro-range. The surface roughnesses are gradually leveled and smoothed.
Through this smoothing action, the actual load-bearing area is enlarged with the
loads being distributed over increasing areas. Therefore the actual load per unit
of working area decreases.
If surface roughness peaks redeveloped because of shock loads or stop-and-go
operation, the TGOA additive package is automatically reactivated. Surface
roughnesses are again smoothed and lubrication optimized.
Castrol Tribol® 1100’s have passed the harsh Cincinnati Milacron Thermal
Stability Test. This test evaluates copped and steel corrosion and oxidation
stability. Castrol Tribol® 1100 Gear Oils are approved as P 74, P 59, and P 35
for the ISO 220, 320, and 460 grades respectively.
