The #ForeverStrong axle oil
One million kilometres and still rocking!
In 2009 Pakelo took on the challenge of creating a high performance, fuel economy, long lasting axle oil for heavy duty vehicles. Too hard to make? Don’t bet it! We are very stubborn when it comes to quest new products and formulas. This time we worked side by side with our historical partner Lubrizol, one of the top chemical companies in the European scene, to find the additive formula what would allow us to reach the great targets we set ourselves. The result of our efforts is Pakelo ArM Gear Lube 5 that in short time gained the prestigious American approval SAE J2360. This is a very tough standard to meet that only few European products managed to get insofar. Normal axle oils for heavy duty vehicles have a high viscosity at 100°C. This feature helps to protect components such as wheels or ring and pinots from tear and wear and it helps to reduce metal-metal contact too, but it involves higher energy absorption due to the increased fuel consumption and CO2 release. Thanks to the use of fully synthetic, high performance bases and thanks to the new addictive technology decreasing temperatures, Pakelo ArM Gear Lube 5 SAE 75W-85 managed to increase efficiency and grant a better wheel protection while combining fuel saving and long lasting durability of the product on service at the same time.
But why should we talk about it after 5 years from the first elaboration? That’s the deal. We finished the first field test through the roads of Norway, Sweden and Denmark. Take a Volvo Truck FH 13 running 250.000 km per year, a few brains from Lubrizol and Pakelo, shake it and you’ll get a million-kilometer journey on the road. Wait a minute to think about it. It’s like going to the Moon and back or revolving around the Earth for 25 times or running the famous Pekin to Paris motor challenge for 60 times! In this long, amazing journey the truck consumed 300.000 liters of fuel, motor oil has been changed 10 times and in the meanwhile our axle oil remained unchanged. This is the reason why we nicknamed it the ‘forever strong’ oil. You might ask yourself how the poor wheels would look like after almost five years of service. Here is a pictures that worths a thousand words.
Are you surprised? We are not, since we you put technological research and development first. We have a mythical R&D Lab on our side! Pakelo ArM Gear Lube 5 is definitively a superior kind of axle oil that enriches and completes our range of heavy duty vehicles lubricants. Ask for more information to your spokesperson and if you don’t have one just write us and we’ll give you the right contact, but before doing whatsoever just watch the video telling the story of our field test and share it.
