Selecting the Right Lubricant Enhances Automotive Performance

Innovative Lubricant Solutions Improve Value and Long-Term Performance

As the automotive industry trends toward lighter, faster, and smaller vehicles with new technical components and enhanced performance, average underhood operating temperatures have increased from under 100 °C (212 °F) — in the 1960s— to more than 200 °C (392 °F). Finding a lubricant able to withstand rising temperatures and harsh conditions for long durations remains a critical requirement for achieving optimal vehicle performance.

The evolution of automobile design has also led to increased noise, vibration, harshness (NVH) and buzz, squeak, rattle (BSR). Because NVH and BSR impact the perception of vehicle quality, using high-quality PFPE (perfluoropolyether) lubricants significantly reduces friction and energy buildup between surfaces that can lead to noises when parts rub together.
