Ashland's Valvoline UltraMax product line includes engine oils, gear oils, transmission fluids, and hydraulic oils designed to extend the life of off-highway engines and equipment by improving protection and cost containment. Designed for better friction and durability, the products minimize wear, prolong part life, and retain operation for the duration of the fluid. UltraMax TDTO TO-4M fluid features all-temperature protection to preclude seasonal oil changes and meets requirements for use in torque converter transmissions on city buses, off-road machines, lift trucks, and specialty vehicles. UltraMax Hydraulic Fluid was jointly developed by Valvoline and Eaton to meet or outperform competitive fluids, while UltraMax Transmission and Drivetrain Oil protects against gear wear, rust, corrosion, foaming, and oxidation. High-temperature-film thickness and low-temperature pumpability offer wear protection under severe loading conditions.
