Product Application
AMSOIL GFW may be applied to fifth-wheels, open gears, chains, flexible couplings, sliding surfaces of drag lines and shovels, construction equipment, dredging equipment or any application where a heavy, tenacious lubricant is required.

Product Description
AMSOIL Synthetic Fifth Wheel and Open Gear Compound (GFW) is based on proprietary technology resulting in a lubricant that does not use asphaltic materials, residual compounded oils or diluent solvents as part of the lubricant formulation.* Typical gear compounds are composed of asphaltic and residual oils cut with solvent to ease application and use. Synthetic GFW does not require solvents to assist the product in application and use, even in cold weather.

*Aerosol spray contains a solvent that evaporates quickly leaving a solvent-free film of material on treated surfaces.

WIDE OPERATING TEMPERATURE RANGE
AMSOIL GFW performs well in cold temperatures and won't drip off at high temperatures, reducing the need for frequent rlubrication.

ADHESION TO METAL
AMSOIL GFW provides excellent adhesion to metal surfaces in cold and hot temperatures. Tackiness allows it to stay in place in high-speed applications, even when applied to open gears or chains. Spray formulation offers quick and easy application.

WATER WASHOUT RESISTANT
AMSOIL GFW repels water, protects metal parts from rust corrosion and stays in place to protect gears from wear.

HANDLES HEAVY LOADS
AMSOIL GFW provides a tough grease film to handle heavy loads and prevent metal parts from contacting.
