Shell Spirax S6 GXME 75W-80 is a unique fuel-efficient, long-life gear oil designed to give the ultimate in
performance and protection to meet the requirements of current and future heavy duty gearboxes. Specially
formulated fully synthetic base oils plus a unique new additive technology give improved lubrication and longer
life for your equipment.
Performance, Features & Benefits
- Low power loss - improved efficiency
Special frictional properties, high fluidity combine to give lower power loss, lower operating temperature and higher mechanical efficiency. Long additive life and excellent viscosity control maintains performance over the oil’s lifetime and provides smooth shifting under all conditions.
- Longer oil drain capability
Long life additives ensure long-term protection of the gears and high oxidation resistance so providing extended drain capability.
Outstanding pitting, scoring and wear protection. Excellent synchromesh compatibility - exceeds requirements of leading OEMs.
- Less environmental pollution
Reduced environmental damage and improved recyclability result from the significantly lower chlorine content.
Markedly improved seal compatibility for increased protection against leaks.
- Recognised by leading equipment manufacturers
A number of leading equipment manufacturers recognise the benefits of synthetic lubricants and are currently
evaluating Spirax S6 GXME 75W-80.
- Part of the Shell synthetic lubricants team
Use in conjunction with other Shell synthetic lubricants for maximum benefit.
Synchromesh gearboxes, including those with integrated retarders, and medium loaded axle drives where mineral or synthetic gear oils are required.
