The FPC GEAR AV Series are synthetic and have been formulated from premium polyalphaolefins (PAO) base fluids for enclosed gear systems requiring ashless antioxidants and anti-wear. These oils have been designed to provide proper lubrication under hydrodynamic and mild boundary lubrication conditions. They are recommended for gear systems where moderate loads and high temperatures are expected, including worm gears containing soft metals such as bronze, brass and copper.
This lubricant is equivalent to the following products.
