Krytox: Lubricants for the Automotive Sector

Table of Contents

Through this article we will explore how Krytox and its portfolio of lubricants for the automotive sector are revolutionising the industry.

The Automotive Industry is Demanding

Design engineers in the automotive industry are in a complex situation. Orders are arriving quickly and in high volume from management, consumers and governments. These demands, which can be as much to improve performance as to reduce emissions, can sometimes be conflicting.

Therefore, industrial lubricants are often seen as the perfect solution to specific engineering problems that arise during the test and production stages. However, the important role that lubricants play in the design process needs to be fully recognised; becoming much more than just quick solutions.

Smart Solutions for Big Challenges

Industry engineers are familiar with the basic requirements necessary when designing or upgrading vehicles. These include designing smaller engines that work harder, improving fuel economies, decreasing emissions, and improving performance and reliability. At the same time, they are under constant pressure to reduce costs, and this demand can create friction.

As new components, materials and parameters come in, they need to work together without friction. This is why Krytox’s range of NVH lubricants are so important. Read our article “How to Reduce Noise in Cars Using Lubricants” to learn more about NVH lubricants.

Leading with Krytox Lubricants

The trend among design engineers is to try to remove the need for lubrication. However, the need exists and will continue to exist. It is much more efficient and cost-effective to design a lubrication solution from the beginning rather than adapt it later. That’s why we recommend that OEM and Tier 1 vendors work with industry-leading brands like Krytox.


High Performance

The higher the required performance specifications, the higher the working temperatures that have to be dealt with. In the engine, it is necessary to maximise the performance. While driving, the slightest squeak or noise is a cause for concern. As a leader in automotive lubrication solutions, Krytox lubricants have a long history of improving performance where it is needed. We have a wide range of ways to help design engineers meet performance goals: bearings, weather stripping, emission control systems, window motors, etc.

An Innovative Future

Driverless vehicles will inevitably be part of the future of the automotive sector. The internal combustion engine can become obsolete as fully electric vehicles advance. But one thing is for certain: the demands of automotive manufacturers will continue to increase, and the demands of industry design engineers will follow suit.

As always, durability, reliability, efficiency, performance and economy will drive innovation. Regulations and legislation on emissions and safety will be stricter, which will also stimulate new advances in engineering technology. Complex components, made from more materials, will be used to achieve these targets. This guarantees that automotive lubrication will remain an essential part of the automotive industry.

Today, choose a trusted partner such as Krytox to provide your high performance lubricants for the automotive sector.
