ExxonMobil Marine Lubricants introduced Mobilgear SHC MT 68, a fully synthetic extreme pressure (EP) marine gear oil formulated to optimise the performance of equipment operating under extreme conditions. The new product resists micropitting while protecting marine thruster gear drives against conventional forms of wear and corrosion.

Mobilgear SHC MT 68 was developed to meet global marketplace demand for a synthetic EP gear oil with excellent wear and corrosion protection, operability at both high and low temperatures and compatibility with industry-standard gearbox seal materials. The oil is approved by Brunvoll AS, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of thruster systems.
All gear oils are made from base oils and various additives to enhance performance. Mobilgear SHC MT 68’s synthetic base oils and proprietary combination of additives are balanced to minimise wear and enhance the performance of all critical gearbox components—including gears, bearings and seals.
Mobilgear SHC MT 68 is recommended for enclosed marine gear drives including steel-on-steel spur, helical and bevel gears operating at bulk oil temperatures up to 100°C (212°F). It is particularly suitable for gear sets working under heavy or shock loads. The product meets or exceeds AGMA 9005-E02-EP, DIN 51517 CLP (Part 3) and ISO 12925-1 Type CKD.
Mobilgear SHC MT 68 is available at key lifting locations and shipyards worldwide. The product is supplied in five-gallon pails and 55-gallon drums.
