Valvoline Introduces UltraMax Lubricants

Valvoline, Lexingron, Ky., has launched its UltraMax product line to extend the life of off-highway engines and equipment by going beyond OEM standards to out-protect, out-perform and provide better cost containment.

The UltraMax lineup includes engine oils, gear oils, transmission fluids, and high-performance hydraulic oils. It was recently showcased at ConExpo 2011.

"UltraMax was developed for off-highway operators to improve their bottom line by reducing costs, inventory and downtime,” said Peter Thomson, director of commercial & industrial marketing. “With improved friction, durability, and prolonged fluid life, UltraMax retains optimal operation for the full life of the fluid, minimizes wear, and helps prolong part life. UltraMax TDTO TO-4M fluid, with its all-temperature protection, means seasonal oil changes are not required. In addition, it also meets the requirements of ZF TE-ML03 for use in ZF torque converter transmissions in city buses, off-road machines, lift trucks, specialty vehicles, and other such equipment."

UltraMax Hydraulic Fluid, jointly developed by Valvoline and Eaton, exceeds the high performance levels demanded by Eaton, Denison, Cincinnati Machine, BOSCH Rexroth, Joy Mining, and others. Tested first in the lab and then in the field, UltraMax Hydraulic Fluid meets or outperforms competitive fluids.

Valvoline's UltraMax transmission & drive train oil provides outstanding protection against gear wear, rust and corrosion, foaming, and oxidation. Formulated to meet rigorous Caterpillar TO-4M specifications, Allison C-4 specifications and Komatsu requirements, it also provides excellent wear and deposit protection, excellent high-temperature-film thickness, and low- temperature pumpability for wear protection under severe loading conditions.
