One of the ten product lines of the Automotive Division at MatraX Lubricants alongside Light Engines, Heavy Engines, Hybrid Engines, Two-Stroke Engines, Four-Stroke Engines, Manual Transmissions, Automatic Transmissions, Automotion Special Fluids & Agriculture. is dedicated to heavy machinery typically used in public engineering works.
We have a range of four high-tech lubricants (MatraX Hydro 10/20 EP, MatraX Heavy Cat 30, MatraX Heavy Cat 50 and MatraX Heavy Cat 10W), catering for the particular needs of such heavy-duty machinery in this particular sector.
The MatraX Hydro 10/20 EP, for instance, is a high-quality oil formulated using special anti-wear and antioxidant additives and stands out for its extraordinary performance under extreme pressure and within a wide temperature range.
On top of this, it has great compatibility with gaskets and elastomers and remains stable in oxidation processes. This makes it ideal for hydraulic systems working at high pressures, especially those circuits of highly demanding heavy engineering and mining machinery.
Lubricants for Caterpillar TO-4 specifications
The MatraX Heavy Cat 30, MatraX Heavy Cat 50 and MatraX Heavy Cat 10W, for their part, are top performance lubricants developed with detergent, dispersant, anti-wear and extreme pressure additives as well as corrosion inhibitors.
Their use is recommended in transmissions, final drives, wet brakes and hydraulic systems that require an oil that meets the Caterpillar TO-4 or Allison C4 specifications.
Among their characteristics are maximum level protection against rust and corrosion in humid operating conditions and during still periods as well as against foaming. They also conserve their properties within a wide temperature range and offer excellent protection against friction and wear while maintaining great fluidity at low temperatures.
Likewise, their compatibility with elastomeric materials guarantees an optimal level of static and dynamic friction. These oils are also capable of getting rid of noise in wet brake discs. Finally, they effectively prevent the formation of sludge and varnish.
All our lubricants are available in 1, 5, 20, 50, 208 and 1,000-litre formats to tailor to all of our customer’s particular needs.
