Oronite additive systems for driveline fluids, specifically THFs, TO-4 fluids, and gear oils, provide outstanding protection and performance. They go through a rigorous array of both in-house and real-world testing where most of our technologies have millions of hours of proven performance. Enduring relationships with critical original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are another key to our success as we develop exclusive technologies for many of the leading OEMs.
Changes in this industry are being driven by more complex and more sophisticated drivetrains, an increasing gear ratio spread and new emission standards. This is why our active research and development programs focus on meeting future industry and customer requirements.

tractor hydraulic fluid (THF)
In the 1970s, Oronite developed the first generation of multi-functional, friction-modified Tractor Hydraulic Fluid (THF) additives. Today, we have research & development labs, engineering experts, and technical centers positioned around the world, as well as a global team with over 200 years of combined industry expertise. Based on more than 40 years of proven experience, Oronite delivers a full line of balanced additives and demonstrated performance in all THF areas.
Oronite’s newest tractor hydraulic fluid additive is formulated to meet the latest specifications addressing higher and more stable friction requirements while maintaining excellent noise suppression, robust protection against gear wear, hydraulic pump distress, rust, corrosion and oxidation. OLOA 9728X is one of the first tractor hydraulic fluid additive offering to meet the new ZF TE-ML 05E specification issued by ZF Friedrichshafen AG. The recently introduced ZP TE-ML 05E specification issued by ZF Friedrichshafen AG includes a new limited slip differential test for measuring noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) and doubles the drain interval of the 05F specification due to the use of Group II base oil. OLOA® 9728X also meets the latest GIMA specifications and testing is underway to support various OEM specifications such as CNH, John Deere and Volvo.
An additive developed to provide the best possible THF performance, and to give an extra level of protection for newer, modern tractor transmission, hydraulic and wet brake systems. OLOA 9727V provides unsurpassed gear protection demonstrated in the John Deere® JDQ95 Gear Test, Massey Ferguson® 4-Square Gear Test and CRC L-20 Gear Test. This product provides maximum pump protection demonstrated in the Allison C4 Vane Pump Test and John Deere JDQ84 axial piston pump test (water contamination). OLOA 9727V extends the life of drivetrains and hydrostatic drives.
A tractor hydraulic fluid additive formulated to meet the requirements of the most modern agricultural equipment on the worldwide market. Compounded fluids are designed to satisfy the service performance requirements of common sump equipment manufactured by John Deere, Case & New Holland (CNH®), Ford®, Massey Ferguson, White Farm™ equipment, Volvo® and others. This product is used in the field by many equipment types in multiple operating conditions without issues.
Oronite’s cost-optimized THF additive product, OLOA 20030, is designed to meet universal tractor transmission oil requirements for active OEMs. Oils formulated with OLOA 20030 meet JDM J20C for service fill, WB101 (recommend for use in VCE) and MATTM 3525. This product provides protection against gear wear, hydraulic pump distress, oxidation, rust and corrosion. The balanced frictional characteristics of OLOA 20030 protects clutches and brakes while minimizing brake chatter.
A cost-competitive THF additive with recognized industry performance: documented and approved JD® J20 (both C & D) requirements. OLOA 20020 provides excellent gear protection and meets highest quality standards of JD J20C and JD J20D. It also offers carefully designed frictional properties to provide good brake and clutch capacity and brake noise control. And it provides good oxidation control and meets Allison® C-4’s oxidation performance as required by JD J20.
OLOA 20008 was developed by Oronite for THFs to be used in severe wet brakes applications. Our testing shows that oils blended with OLOA 20008 are as quiet as the “86-B” reference oil while having equivalent or greater brake capacity and gear protection. Fluids formulated with OLOA 20008 show a noise performance equivalent or superior to commercial “86-B” fluids. This product is proven to meet Ford M2C86-B and Massey Ferguson M1135 requirements.
automatic transmission fluid (ATF)
Oronite offers its OLOA® 24800 Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) additive package globally. It is suitable for use in vehicles that require DEXRON®-IIIH, MERCON®, and Allison C4 ATF. OLOA 24800 has excellent low-temperature fluidity, minimizes sludge and varnish deposits, and helps keep transmissions clean. It helps preserve the elasticity of seals and prevent leaks. OLOA 24800 also contains long-life friction modifiers for smooth shifting and helps eliminate clutch slippage and shudder. This package can also be used as a power steering fluid and has been thoroughly tested in real world conditions.
transmission oil (TO-4)
