Allison Transmission, Inc. has announced it jointly developed with ExxonMobil the new Mobil Delvac Synthetic ATF, a fully synthetic TES 295 certified automatic transmission fluid that is formulated to enhance the performance of Allison Automatics operating in the most severe conditions. The new ATF will be available worldwide through the extensive distribution and sales networks of both Allison and ExxonMobil, the company noted. It replaces the current severe-application ATF sold under the same name and will be sold in drums, pails and gallon containers.

According to Allison, the TES 295 certification is one of the industry’s most stringent specifications for automatic transmission fluids. The company said Mobil Delvac Synthetic ATF meets or exceeds these specs and is ideal for use in trucks, buses, utility vehicles, haulers and delivery vans.

“Allison designs fully automatic transmissions for the most severe on-and off-highway conditions, so any fluid that is TES 295 certified has to deliver first-rate performance under extreme applications,” said Lou Gilbert, Allison Transmission North American Marketing Manager. “ExxonMobil manufactures industry-proven products so we were happy to work with them to develop new Mobil Delvac Synthetic ATF. This collaboration not only benefits our customers worldwide by offering them a new TES 295-certified fluid, it is a good complement to the Allison Transmission total value equation.”

“We worked in close cooperation with Allison’s engineers to test and evaluate new Mobil Delvac Synthetic ATF so that it delivers the exceptional performance required for extended drain intervals as well as extended product coverage,” said Yeong Kwon, commercial vehicle lubricants product offer adviser at ExxonMobil Lubricants & Specialties.
