Putting Greases and Oils to the Ultimate Test

The Versatility of PFPE Lubricants Drives Performance by Shrinking Component Failure and Extending Vehicle Life

The recent evolution of automotive technology has resulted in more extreme underhood environments that place even greater demands on lubricants designed to protect components, extend service life and warranty periods, and reduce noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) issues.

Consumer expectations have also evolved to expect that even standard trim level cars offer similar features and performance to luxury cars. High-quality perfluoropolyethers (PFPE) are more effective than traditional lubricants for eliminating cabin NVH and buzz, squeak, and rattle (BSR), issues that can severely affect a car buyer's perception of quality.

PFPEs can improve system performance in a variety of auto applications

Perfluoropolyethers (PFPEs) like Krytox™ high-performance lubricants, have consistently outperformed alternatives in a variety of applications including bearings, valves, seals, weather stripping, fan clutches, and alternators.

When used in underhood and interior applications, these long-lasting, high-performing lubricants help to extend service life and warranty periods with fewer claims and enhance the driver experience.
