Krytox™ Performance Lubricants for Transmissions and Clutches

Performance Lubricants Enhance Driving Experiences

Transmission problems are notorious for their cost and complexity, since there are many potential factors at play. For example, if a vehicle’s transmission seems unresponsive, it could be due to a worn clutch. Friction between clutch plates can also lead to excessive wear (e.g., gears can grind down).

Krytox™ performance lubricants play an essential role in maintaining proper performance within the drive train to keep cars running smoothly. When used in clutch release bearings, Krytox™ performance lubricants offer:

  • Excellent wear under high acceleration
  • Compatibility with auto fluids
  • Long-term, reliable performance

When used in clutch actuators, Krytox™ lubricants are:

  • Inert to all types of hydraulic fluids
  • Compatible with seals and polymers
  • Volumetrically stable (e.g., they do not swell or shrink)

When used in dual-mass fly-wheels, Krytox™ lubricants offer:

  • Outstanding wear under heavy loads
  • Long-term, reliable performance
  • Noise reduction

Meeting the Industry’s Demands for Less-Frequent Service

Unlike many other lubricants, Krytox™ greases and oils don’t require frequent replacement or disposal. This eliminates waste while aligning with the industry's goal to reduce scheduled service. For many applications, the service life of automotive parts is expected to exceed 10 years or 100,000 miles.

Extreme Performance and Extreme Conditions

Krytox™ performance lubricants provide reliable, long-term performance under high acceleration. Because of their extreme lubricity, temperature resistance, and chemical stability, Krytox™ lubricants perform in the toughest conditions.
