Automotive Lubricants & Coatings

5The basicsgreases are made up of a base oil, a thickener & additives.We have a full range of high efficiency, performance greases based on mineral & fully synthetic base oils used by many automotive manufacturers and suppliersStandard & special greases with different thickeners from lithium, calcium, barium complex, aluminium complex, sodium and many others for various applicationsAdditives are included to enhance performance and to address the application parameters. For example where a lubricant is needed to prevent corrosion, assist with extreme pressure/loads, extreme temperatures and high speeds or where water resistance or anti wear are issues.

Vehicle RefinementEliminating trim squeaks and rattles on any type of interior trim component and compatible with all substrate materials, plastics, rubber, metals, leather etc. We also have anti friction coatings and lubricants for use as a slip coat for door and window seals, sunroofs & weather-strips to reduce friction, wear and very importantly noise and judder.

Assembly AidsOur products are used as assembly aids on :-Coolant HosesWindow seals & weather-stripsFuel hosesO rings, gaskets & other sealsAir conditioning systemsPlastic clipsBushingsComplete range of fluids, gels & dry film lubricants to aid component assembly and decrease assembly effort & process time, they are compatible with most materials used.

Production Line Maintenance Synthetic lubricants which can be used to extend component life, reduce downtime and unscheduled maintenance in:-

Paint oven conveyorsTrolley wheelsHigh temp conveyor chainsE-Coat line bath/washer chains

Dry Film LubricantsThese products are:-Water or solvent based, dry film coatingsBased on PTFE, Graphite, MoS2, Boron Nitrite or other solid lubricants and a binder A thin film of a low friction paint or coatingIdeal for B surface interfacesRequire drying time or curingThe most commonly known dry film lubricants are Molybdenum Disulfide (MoS2 or Moly), PTFE, and Graphite however there are many others.

Application Examples

13Application Examples Window RegulatorApplication Description

Window lift regulatorsWindow regulator guide mechanismsCable to drive wheels

Application Requirements

China Desert Sand TestMin & Maxi Temperature requirements (-40 to + 90C)Lifetime durability testsWater resistance testsMaterials compatibility (plastics, metals..)Noise elimination

Lubrication PointsApplication Examples Window RegulatorProblem

Ratio of Cost to Technical Perfomance were main criteria to meet demands of major Automotive OEMs

Guarantee to supply continuity of special of Customer packaging needs for future


PAO based grease with good low temp torque and compatibility with plastics

Lubrication Points

Application Examples Dynamic SealsApplication Description

Dry lubrication (interior and exterior) of a dynamic seal, with a low coefficient of friction.

Application Requirements

Decrease of friction coefficient Dry product Compatible with seals FPM /ACM (VITON/ Rubber Polyacrylic). Water BasedThe lubricant has to be maintained even with the handling before the assembly. The lubricant should not trap dust.

Application Examples Dynamic SealsProblem

The customer wanted a water based product.The lubricant has to be efficient, no migrating, and compatible with rubbers


Dry film coating

Lubrication Points

Application Examples Automotive Seating

ProblemThe customer required durable solution to various noise & friction related quality issues.Compatibility with all materials including plastics, rubber & leather and a wide operating temperature range (-40C to 120C)


PFPE oil (on leather trim) PAO/Lithium grease (on headrest inserts) Low temp PAO/Lithium greasse (on headrest inserts)PFPE oil (on headrest stems)

Lubrication Points

Application Examples Starter Switch

Application Description

Used on three slides on a starter switch.

Application Requirements

300 000 cycles28 000 cycles at. 40 C75 000 cycles at 85 CCompatibility with ABS casingCompatible with POM runnerCompatibility with silicone membraneCompatibility with polycarbonate button membrane (non visible)

Application Examples Starter Switch

ProblemThe customer needed a product which would be compatible with multiple materials in particular polycarbonate. Product enduranceTo reduce noise and the force required to depress the button (reduced from 8.5N to 6N).


PAO/Lithium Low temp grease

Application Examples Electrical Controls

Application Description

Lubrication of electrical controls with varying operational requirements such as on/ off contacts, signal amplification and push activation/ deactivation.Electric window locks & adjustersSide mirror regulators

Application Requirements

50 000 cycles

Application Examples Electrical Controls

ProblemThe customer needed a product which would facilitate 50000 operations. Be compatible with multiple plastics including in particular polycarbonate. Wide operational temperature range (minimum -40C to +85 CInhibition of oxidation to copper


PAO/Lithium (polycarbonate compatible)Ester/Lithium (where polycarbonate absent)
