AMSOIL Synthetic RC Series Gear and Bearing Oils
are primarily recommended for gear and bearing applications and
circulating systems requiring A&O and/or anti-wear additive
technology. AMSOIL's RC Series lubricants are made from high quality
synthetic base stocks and additive systems. This product prevents
wear and protects equipment by maintaining its viscosity, resisting
thermal and oxidative breakdown, incorporating anti-wear additives,
preventing rust, and resisting the degrading effects of water.
AMSOIL lubricants are very shear-stable and oxidation-resistant,
which prevents viscosity loss from mechanical shear and viscosity
increase from oxidation. In addition, the high viscosity index
and low pour points allow for extended temperature protection
and performance. AMSOIL RC Series Oils are fluid at cold temperatures--providing
easier startups, quick lubricant circulation and limiting the
need for sump heaters. At higher temperatures, AMSOIL maintains
a thick lubricating film, reducing metal-to-metal contact and
Appropriate viscosities meet or exceed the
following hydraulic oil applications or requirements:
Denison HF-0, HF-1, HF-2
Vickers M-2950-S, I-286-S
Cincinnati Milacron P-68, P-69, P-70
U.S. Steel 127 and 136
GM LH-04-1, LH-06-1, LH-15-1

AMSOIL's complete additive technology enhances
the oil's performance. The non-detergent, ashless anti-wear additives
in the RC Series provide an additional layer of protection against
wear in sever conditions. Rust inhibitors protect critical components
against corrosion in the presence of water or process contaminants,
anti-oxidants increase the oil's oxidation resistance, which extends
lubricant life, and the foam suppressants prevent unwanted foaming
and air entrapment.
Hydrolytic stability (stability in the presence
of water) and demulsibility (ability to readily separate from
water) are important features provided by the RC Series lubricants.
This increases lubricant life, prevents oil/water emulsions, and
allows for reservoirs to be drained of water caused by the environment,
processes or condensation.
AMSOIL's unique combination of synthetic base
oils and additives extends service life and operating temperatures
while providing clean, problem-free operation.

Hydrolytically stable and readily separates
AMSOIL Synthetic RC Series oils are primarily
recommended for gear and bearing applications and circulating
systems requiring A&O and/or anti-wear additive technology.
The lighter viscosity AMSOIL RC Series oils provide
superior protection in high and low pressure gear, vane and piston
hydraulic systems, compressors, high speed bearings, small gear
sets, pumps, high speed spindles, high speed gear, and many other
industrial applications. Higher viscosity grades of RC oils, beginning
with RCI (ISO 46) meet AGMA specifications for R&O and Synthetic
gear oil specifications 1 through 8, respectively, for the lubrication
of intermediate-speed equipment where mild shock loading and intermittent
service are involved. These applications include machine tools,
roller chains, gear reducers, cone drives, large motor bearings,
medium-speed ball and roller bearings, blowers, and worm gear
sets. Consult the manufacturer for proper viscosity recommendations.
The ability of RC Series oils to extend drain intervals is subject
to operating environments and maintenance practices and should
be monitored by oil analysis.
Although AMSOIL lubricants are compatible with
mineral oil-based lubricants, for optimum performance it is recommended
that the system be thoroughly drained and cleaned, if warranted.
NOTE: AMSOIL RC Series oils are not designed
for applications requiring Extreme Pressure (EP) agents. For
EP fortified lubricants, please refer to AMSOIL SG Series Gear
