Scangear 85W/140 GL-5 stands out as a gear lubricant derived from mineral oil, meticulously crafted to conform to the Scania STO 1:0 axle specifications while delivering extended longevity in drain cycles. This formulation is ideally suited for the axles of commercial vehicles, where it excels in bearing heavy loads, enhancing fuel efficiency, and maintaining thermal stability. Furthermore, it is the recommended choice for lubricating differentials, final drives, and various other gear-related applications.

Scangear 85W/140 GL-5 boasts exceptional performance in high-temperature and high-load conditions, providing not only robust protection against corrosion but also seamless compatibility with seals.

Even when subjected to the rigorous mechanical stresses often encountered in hypoid and other demanding automotive gear applications, Scangear 85W/140 GL-5 exhibits remarkable viscosity-temperature characteristics, ensuring consistent performance.


Scangear 85W/140 GL-5 characteristics include:

  • 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 components 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.

Scangear 85W/140 GL-5 is recommended for the lubrication of axles, differentials, final drives, and other gear applications in commercial vehicles where long drain, heavy duty performance is required, such as in Scania trucks and other modern vehicles including those using ZF equipment.
