Manual transmission antifriction treatment


TD-22 is the most complete and best performing antifriction treatment for manual transmission on the market. Its advanced formula, developed in cooperation with transmission professionals and specialists, enhances the quality and performance of all manual transmission oils, whether they be mineral or synthetic.

Characteristics and Benefits

The high quality components of the antifriction treatment TD-22 formula ensure maximum performance for manual transmissions. When added to oil, TD-22 reduces friction, wear, noise and heat; its use results in smoother gear shifting and more efficient power transmission in all conditions.

Used in a preventive manner, TD-22 contributes to lowering the operation temperatures, provides excellent thermal stability, increases oil resistance to oxidation and protects the system against rust and corrosion.

Types of Application

Use TD-22 in all types of manual transmissions as well as in differentials (except, for the WARNING below).


The antifriction treatment TD-22 is compatible with all mineral and synthetic oils.

Directions for Use

Substitute 350 ml of your manual transmission oil with TD-22. For best results, add this treatment to new oil. A 350 ml bottle of TD-22 will treat as much as 6 litres of manual transmission oil. For crankcases of more than 6 litres, substitute 10% of your manual transmission oil, up to a maximum of 2 litres. Under those circumstances, you can also use Prolab's TD-234 (see TD-234 specification sheet).
Some manufacturers (such as Ford) recommend an automatic transmission fluid for certain types of manual transmission gearboxes: in that case, still use TD-22, specifically designed for the types of gears found in manual transmission.


TD-22 should not be used in limited-slip differentials. For that type of equipment, Prolab's TDA-62 treatment should be used (see TDA-62 specification sheet).
TD-22 is not intended to repair mechanical defects.
