EP MULTIGEAR 80W/90 MB 235.20


EP MULTIGEAR 80W/90 MB 235.20 is a gear lubricant formulated primarily from mineral oils, meticulously crafted to conform to the rigorous Mercedes Benz axle specification MB 235.20. This specialized lubricant boasts an impressive extended long drain capability, reaching up to 350,000 kilometers of reliable performance. It stands as an ideal choice for commercial vehicle axles, particularly those requiring heightened load-bearing capacity, enhanced fuel efficiency, and dependable thermal stability. Moreover, it’s a recommended option for lubricating various components, including differentials, final drives, manual transmissions, transfer cases, and other gear-related applications.

EP MULTIGEAR 80W/90 MB 235.20 delivers exceptional performance across a broad temperature range, excelling in both high-temperature, high-load scenarios and maintaining excellent low-temperature fluidity and cold flow characteristics. Furthermore, it provides robust protection against corrosion and ensures compatibility with seals, promoting superior longevity and performance.

Notably, EP MULTIGEAR 80W/90 MB 235.20 maintains its impressive viscosity/temperature properties, even after enduring the mechanical stresses inherent in hypoid and other demanding automotive gear applications.


  • ANTI-WEAR CAPABILITIES. Protects components against wear under normal loads.
  • EXTREME PRESSURE CAPABILITIES. Protects components from failure under shock and high loads.
  • SPALLING PROTECTION. Provides axle gear sets with metal fatigue protection.
  • THERMAL DURABILITY. Prevents gear spalling at high temperatures and loads.
  • SHEAR STABILITY. Shear-stable viscosity modifiers used to ensure this wide span multigrade oil ‘stays in grade’.
  • PREVENTION OF OIL LEAKAGE. Oil seal compatibility helps to keep the oil in the axle and maintain lubrication.
  • OXIDATION AND THERMAL STABILITY. Prevents oil thickening and deposit formation, resulting in better component protection.
  • ANTI-FOAM CHARACTERISTICS. Prevents breakdown of and maintains the protective oil film, enabling constant lubrication of components.
  • RUST AND CORROSION PREVENTION. Protects system parts from water.

EP MULTIGEAR 80W/90 MB 235.20 is recommended for the lubrication of axles, differentials, final drives, manual transmissions, transfer cases and other gear applications where long drain, heavy duty performance is required, such as in Mercedes Benz, Scania and MAN vehicles and those using Arvin Meritor and ZF equipment.
