Shell Lubricants on Tuesday, July 19, announced the rollout of its redesigned global portfolio of transmission fluids, gearbox oils, mobile hydraulic oils, gear and axle oils, and greases for on- and off-highway vehicles and equipment. The simplified product lineup is designed to make selecting the proper level of protection easier. The new portfolio of lubricants and greases is being rolled out globally.

Shell Donax and Shell Dentax products have been consolidated under the Shell Spirax brand of gear oils, axle oils and transmission fluids. All grease products now are under the Shell Gadus brand. Shell Retinax, Shell Rhodina, Shell Albida and Shell Alvania are among the products now in the Shell Gadus portfolio.

“We developed our simplified portfolio of premium gear oils, hydraulic oils and greases to enable vehicle and equipment operators to select the products designed to deliver optimum value to their operations,” says Dan Arcy, OEM technical manager, Shell Lubricants. “These products can help improve system efficiency and ultimately help maximize productivity.”

The Shell Lubricants fleet and construction industry portfolios are designed to help maximize efficiency and help reduce cost of operation based on application and service. The redesigned portfolio features new packaging labels and product guides to aid choice, using new names, color coding and visual icons to indicate individual performance benefits; these changes also are designed to help reduce the risk of product misapplication in the factory environment. As part of the redesign, Shell Lubricants also standardized packaging across the entire portfolio to make storage and stacking easier.
