Petro-Canada Lubricants brings in new oil


Petro-Canada Lubricants has launched its new Traxon synthetic MTF 75W-80 as a part of its gear oil line.  

The MTF 75W-80 is a premium performance commercial vehicle manual transmission fluid that is used to drain liquids, protect from outside conditions, and shrink maintenance costs. The product is made for extended drain service in heavy duty manual transmissions like class 6, 7, and 8. The product has been approved by Volvo and Mack, so costumers will be able to use it in their automated manual transmission applications.  

The fluid is made for manual gear boxes of the G7/8,S,SR,SPO,AT and VT series from Volvo GTT up to a 400,000 km (250,000 miles) drain interval.  It I can also be used in ZF transmission models, according to Petro-Canada.  

“We are thrilled to enhance the Traxon product line. We are committed to developing top-tier products that deliver operational excellence and cost-saving results for our customers. The unique fuel-efficient formulation is an advanced product to meet the future demands of new hardware, and is testament to raising the bar on our heavy duty driveline offering,” said Barnaby Ngai, category portfolio manager of heavy duty engine and driveline oils at Petro-Canada Lubricants.
