CASTROL TRIBOL™ BIOTOP 1418 synthetic gear oils are formulated from a synthetic ester and are readily biodegradable
(more than 80%) according to CEC L-33-A-93. Anti-wear and corrosion protection additives improve the natural
characteristics of the synthetic base oil. CASTROL TRIBOL BIOTOP 1418 gear oils are available in the viscosity grades
ISO VG 220 to ISO VG 320.
CASTROL TRIBOL BIOTOP 1418 gear oils are suited for the application in spur, helical and planetary gear units,
couplings, rolling and sliding bearings in farm and construction machinery, wind turbines, sewage plants, cranes

biodegradable gear oil is required.
Temperature application range: from - 25°C to + 90°C
More than 80% readily biodegradable according CEC L-33-A-93
Load stage >12 is passed in the FZG test at double peripheral speed
CASTROL TRIBOL BioTop 1418 passes the FZG micropitting test with the result: high micropitting load carrying
Excellent oxidation stability allows extended oil change cycles
Reduced consumption and smaller amounts of lubricants disposed protect the environment
High viscosity index allows start-ups at low temperatures and provides for a thicker lubricating film at high
temperatures for additional anti-wear protection
