Description

Synthetic Fifth Wheel & Open Gear Compound (GFW)

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
AMSOIL Synthetic 5th Wheel and Open Gear Compound (GFW) is based on proprietary technology resulting in a lubricant that does not use asphaltic materials, residual compounded oils or diluent solvents as part of the lubricant formulation.* Typical gear compounds are composed of asphaltic and residual oils cut with solvent to ease application and use. Synthetic GFW does not require solvents to assist the product in application and use, even in cold weather.

*Aerosol spray contains a solvent that evaporates quickly leaving a solvent-free film of material on treated surfaces.

WIDE OPERATING TEMPERATURE RANGE
AMSOIL 5th Wheel Grease performs well in cold temperatures and resists dripping off at high temperatures, reducing the need for frequent rlubrication.

ADHESION TO METAL
AMSOIL 5th Wheel Grease provides excellent adhesion to metal surfaces in cold and hot temperatures. Tackiness allows it to stay in place in high-speed applications, even when applied to open gears or chains. Spray formulation offers quick and easy application.

WATER WASHOUT RESISTANT
AMSOIL Synthetic 5th Wheel and Open Compound is formulated to repel water, protect metal parts from rust corrosion and stay in place to protect gears from wear.

HANDLES HEAVY LOADS
AMSOIL 5th Wheel Grease provides a tough grease film to handle heavy loads and help prevent metal parts from contacting.

PERFORMANCE FEATURES

  • Excellent resistance to water washout
  • Environmentally preferable to solvent-containing formulations
  • Protects ferrous surfaces from rust
  • Excellent adhesion to metal surfaces
  • Forms a tacky, tenacious film
  • Heavy load-carrying and extreme-pressure performance
  • Stays pliable at cold temperatures and does not flake off

APPLICATIONS
AMSOIL Synthetic 5th Wheel and Open Gear Compound may be applied to fifth-wheels, open gears, chains, flexible couplings, sliding surfaces of drag lines and shovels, construction equipment, dredging equipment or any application where a heavy, tenacious lubricant is required.

Performance Data
AMSOIL Synthetic 5th Wheel and Open Gear Compound meets the AGMA 14R and NLGI #1.5 performance specifications.

Installation
AMSOIL Synthetic 5th Wheel and Open Gear Compound is fully compatible with other fifth-wheel and open gear compounds and may be applied to surfaces previously treated with other fifth-wheel and open gear compounds.

Product Availability
AMSOIL Synthetic 5th Wheel and Open Gear Compound is available in 11.5 oz. aerosol spray cans.
