Overcoming Lubrication Challenges for Effective Lightweighting

Effective Lightweighting Relies on High-Performance Lubrications

Regulatory requirements and consumer demands are driving automakers and suppliers to explore strategies that improve fuel economy. Global industry leaders must cut CO₂ emissions and increase efficiency without sacrificing safety or performance.

Lightweighting—the process of building lighter cars and trucks—helps automakers to meet increasingly stringent fuel economy and emission standards. However, lightweighting also introduces design challenges because it requires that parts made of different materials — like chassis and body components — to work seamlessly together.

a boost in fuel economy and reduction of CO2 equals a reduction in weight

Achieving that integration requires special lubricants. Because components must also work efficiently in hotter operating environments, they need more effective, durable lubricants.

This white paper explains the lubrication challenges associated with lightweighting and how using high-performance Krytox™ lubricants ensure optimum performance, fewer breakdowns, less friction, and increased durability.
