Castrol Alphasyn T 68 Industrial Synthetic gear lubricant


Castrol Alphasyn T 68 gear oil. A synthetic industrial lubricant made from a base of polyalpha-olefin (PAO) fluids with added sulphur/phosphorus antiwear additive technology to provide outstanding thermal stability and good load-carrying capacity.


Alphasyn T grades have been formulated for use in most types of light to medium-duty enclosed gear systems but should not be used for heavy / shock-loaded systems.

Castrol Alphasyn T 68 is also suitable for the lubrication of bearings and circulatory systems operating at high temperatures and various high-temperature applications such as in hydraulic systems and for the lubrication of large, slow-moving gears.

All products in the Alphasyn T range have very low pour points and excellent viscosity/temperature characteristics, allowing their use in both low and high-temperature applications.

The Alphasyn T range is fully compatible with nitrile, silicone and fluoropolymer seal materials.

Castrol Alphasyn T 68 is classified as follows:
DIN Classification CL

Alphasyn T grades meet the requirements of:

  • DIN 51517 Part 2
  • David Brown Type A

Castrol Alphasyn T 68 Lubricant Advantages:

  • Good thermal and oxidative stability provides reliable operation and extended operating life when compared to mineral oil-based products.
  • An inherently high viscosity index makes the product suitable for operations operating over a wide temperature range.
  • Good antiwear and load-carrying abilities minimise gear wear and prolong gear tooth life.
  • Good water separation and demulsification characteristics promote reduced downtime through prolonged lubricant life and increased equipment reliability.
  • PAO base fluid provides good compatibility with seals, paints and mineral oil-based lubricants.
