The Energy that Keeps Namibia Moving



Sasol Syn Gear (PAO) EP 220 & 320 oils are synthetic high performance oils particularly suited to gear applications requiring micro-pitting resistance.

These products are formulated with polyalphaolefins (PAO) base stocks in order to provide performance greatly superior to conventional petroleum oils. The molecular structure of PAO resembles that of high quality petroleum oils. Indeed, PAO fluids are fully compatible with petroleum base oils while offering significantly improved load carrying ability, excellent wear and rust protection, high viscosity index, high flash point, low pour point, outstanding oxidative stability, and cleaner running systems.


Sasol Syn Gear (PAO) EP 220 & 320 are particularly suited to gear applications operating under extreme service conditions. The products are recommended for all types of enclosed gear drives, bearings (including plain rolling elements and anti-friction types. In addition, applications requiring high micro-pitting resistance such as in Wind Turbine Gear Systems.

Storage and Handling

  • Use PVC, nitrile or other oil resistant gloves and protective clothing to prevent skin contact.
  • Where eye contact is a potential hazard, goggles should be worn.
  • Avoid temperatures above 80°C and strong oxidizing agents.
  • Ambient temperatures and atmospheric pressures normally encountered within buildings or roofed-over outdoor storage areas are acceptable.
  • Avoid entering areas where mists or vapours have built up as a result of abnormal temperatures or pressures without the proper breathing equipment and protective clothing.
