Setral ® EPL additive system with thermochemical, plastic gradation of roughness peaks

The EPL additive system is used in numerous Setral special lubricants

The Setral ®EPL additive system (Extreme Pressure Lubricant) notably increases the high-load capacity of mixed and boundary friction. As a result of its thermochemical characteristics, it is able to create plastic deformations on the surface and therefore to profile roughness peaks with almost no wear, thus a successful “repair” of micro-/ pittings due to the scarring of the fringe area is doable. In the mixed friction system, gears with the EPL additive system reach a lubrication which is similar to the elastohydrodynamic lubrication and consequently decreases the energy demand. The EPL additive system is used in numerous Setral special lubricants. Among the gear oils the MI-s-GEAR/EPL series features it.
