The Energy that Keeps Namibia Moving



Sasol Syn ATF DX III is a synthetic automatic transmission fluid with outstanding oxidation and friction stability. It is formulated to meet the demanding requirements of modern heavy duty automatic


Sasol Syn ATF DX III is dyed red for easy identification.


Sasol Syn ATF DX III is recommended for most automatic transmission units and power steering units where automatic transmission fluids are recommended. Sasol Syn ATF DX III is most suitable for use in severe service applications where high temperatures have reduced transmission life. Typical applications include heavy duty automatic transmissions with integral retarders, transmission retarders, racing application, transmissions in taxis and transit vans.

Features and Benefits

Sasol Syn ATF DX III offers excellent cold flow performance, very good anti-wear performance, outstanding friction durability and excellent oxidation life. It also offers the following advantages:

  • Better control of deposits - cleaner transmission – longer life
  • Longer drainage intervals – lower service costs
  • Outstanding resistance to high temperature oxidation – suitable for severe service
  • Viscosity stability, viz. les noise when hot – maintains new oil feel and higher performance
