Specialty lubricants for vehicles: all aspects of the powertrain

High speeds and enormous forces, temperatures above 200 degrees in turbochargers, and aggressive exhaust gases: Industrial lubricants for the engine periphery and the powertrain are highly stressed. New challenges also arise from the new mobility. Electric vehicles, cars and trucks with hybrid drive and fuel cell vehicles need innovative lubricant concepts in many places. In close cooperation with the automotive industry, Klüber Lubrication is constantly developing new specialty lubricants that exactly meet the needs of tomorrow's mobility. They support the thermal management of drive systems and help reduce wear even with extremely high torques, e.g. in cardan shafts.

At a glance: specialty lubricants for the powertrain

  • Specialty lubricants for numerous applications: From starter motors, actuators, EGR valves and generators to turbochargers, vibration dampers and cardan shafts.
  • Preventing wear, extending lifetime and increasing comfort: Our lubricants are designed for durable lubrication and reliable protection against corrosion in order to prevent wear and dampen shocks and vibrations.
  • Made for the new mobility: Together with the industry, we develop innovative automotive lubricants for use in electric vehicles and with other alternative drive systems.

Requirements for automotive powertrain lubricants

The product portfolio of specialty lubricants from Klüber Lubrication has proven its worth with numerous automotive manufacturers, OEMs and suppliers. Silicone-free lubricants ensure the operation of stop-start starter motors over the entire life cycle, lubricants able to withstand high temperatures and blow-by keep throttle valves moving freely, and specifically developed industrial lubricants with tightly controlled oil release dampen engine vibrations in dual mass flywheels so that they are not transferred unimpeded to the gearbox and the passenger compartment. At these lubrication points and many others, from actuators to cardan shafts and spline shafts, our specialty lubricants protect a wide variety of materials against corrosion, wear and seizures – under harsh environmental conditions and throughout the lifetime of the vehicle. Lubricants from Klüber Lubrication make a significant contribution to the comfort of the occupants and long-term driving pleasure.

Specialty lubricants for new drive concepts

With e-mobility, hybrid drives and fuel cells, the automotive industry is gearing up with new drive concepts for the future. Klüber Lubrication supports our customers and partners in the development of innovative solutions. Along with wear protection, our Hydro Lubricants perform the lion's share of heat dissipation in the gearboxes of battery electric vehicles (BEVs). Other lubricant concepts are adapted to the high torques of electric drives or support earthing and discharge of electric potentials. The Klüberlectric series is specifically designed for the bearings of electric drives to prevent premature damage from arcing, thereby contributing to the long service life of rolling bearings and other components.
