Driveline and Transmission
The introduction of new and more sophisticated transmission systems are placing greater demands on the fluids that lubricate them. Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are demanding fluids which have specific frictional characteristics; drain intervals are getting longer and in some cases "fill-for-life" fluids are required. Additionally, new clutch materials are also being developed and it cannot be assumed that additives which work well with one type of clutch material will work well with others.
We have been a supplier of ingredients for transmission fluids and driveline applications for many years, therefore having excellent application expertise as well as knowledge of the changing regulations and requirements. We can help you overcome the technical challenges you might face when formulating fluids for driveline and transmission applications.
Why choose us?
There are various types of transmission systems available globally, and the fluid requirements for each type of transmission is different. In a world where improved fuel economy and reduced emissions are being legislated for, OEMs are looking for ways to not only improve driver experience but also gain fuel economy benefits through more efficient transmissions.
As with engine oils, our Priolube™ esters are often used as additive solubilizers and seal swell agents but can also help in optimizing low temperature flow properties.
Control and durability of friction in wet clutch systems is a key parameter and we can show through our clutch test rig that our esters and friction modifiers can be beneficial in this regard. Additionally, wear protection of transmission components is also a high priority and we offer some opportunities to provide ester technology which may aid formulators in developing formulations which, for example, prevent wear and micro-pitting, using high viscosity complex esters.
