  • Car transmissions

Highly loaded final drives, synchronized and unsynchronized gearboxes.

Performance, features and benefits

  • Superior gear and synchronizer protection

Carefully selected base oils in combination with the latest additive package allow you to achieve the highest level of operational properties of drive axles, where both gear protection and compatibility with synchronizers are required.

  • Extended transmission life

High resistance to shear loads and extreme pressure additives provide excellent protection of mechanisms from wear and pitting, prevent premature breakdowns and increase the service life of transmission and oil units. Excellent oxidative and thermal stability also helps protect seals from damage due to scale formation.

  • Increased transmission efficiency

Reduces friction losses, thereby improving the efficiency of transmission units. Since Shell Spirax S5 ATE 75W-90 is a transmission oil based on synthetic technology, it provides optimal lubrication at both high and low temperatures.

  • Has no negative impact on the environment

Excellent seal compatibility ensures leakage protection. Low chlorine formulations and the possibility of extending the oil change interval guarantee reduced environmental impact.
