The range has been designed to offer specific performance benefits over its conventional mineral oil and synthetic fluid counterparts.


Castrol Alphasyn HG 220 is particularly suitable for applications at high operating temperatures and loadings, Alphasyn HG provides superior performance benefits including excellent thermal and oxidation stability and enhanced load-carrying ability as detailed below.


Alphasyn HG offers a wide range of performance benefits over a conventional lubricant when used in gear and bearing applications:

  • Substantially extended lubricant life.
  • Excellent anti-wear, extreme pressure and load-carrying properties lead to savings in both maintenance time and costs.
  • Exceptional lubricity properties increase mechanical efficiency and minimise energy losses. proven superior performance across a wide temperature range and in particular at high temperatures.
  • Excellent thermal and oxidative stability.
  • Advanced lubricant properties such as viscosity characteristics, low pour point and good air and water separation

Fully compatible with standard seal, paint and hose material, and with Ortlinghaus multi-plate clutches.
Castrol Alphasyn HG 220 synthetic fluid passes the standard FZG test (A/8.3/90) with a fail load stage greater than 12 and also the more severe FZG test (A/16.6/140) at fail load stage 10.
