BASF Emgard® RW-A SAE 75W-90
General characterization - Additional technical data
Emgard RW-A is an API GL-5 synthetic gear lubricant designed for extended drain service and improved wear protection compared to typical petroleum 80W-90 gear lubricants.
This extreme pressure lubricant results in longer gear life by providing high film strength and superior low temperature performance. It also has anti-rust and anti-corrosion properties to further promote extended gear and bearing life.
Emgard RW-A is formulated using synthetic basestock which has a high viscosity index and an exceptionally low pour point. This lubricant contains extreme pressure additives, as well as rust, oxidation and corrosion inhibitors to protect gears and bearings operated under a wide variety of load conditions. The high and low temperature performance of this product exceeds those of conventional SAE 80W-90, SAE 85W-90,
and 75W-90 gear lubricants.
BASF Product Code = RW-A
Emgard RW-A is recommended for applications where heat and wear present major problems. These applications include final gear drives, differentials, transfer cases for heavy equipment, in railways, trams, trucks, tractors and industrial gear drives.
