Over the past several decades, the automotive industry has placed increasing priority on reducing engine, wind, and road noise to improve comfort. Unfortunately, as background noise levels continue to decrease, the squeaks, ticks, and rattles generated by the many components inside and outside the vehicle become increasingly noticeable, and annoying. With the emergence of Hybrids and Electric vehicles, NVH reduction is becoming even more important.
Engineers responsible for reducing noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) regularly trust Krytox™ lubricants to resolve noise issues inside the vehicle (instrument panels, center consoles, closures and latches) as well as outside (door, decklid, and weather strip seals, sunroofs, and suspension bushings).
Why Krytox™ ?
- Unlike hydrocarbon-based lubricants, Krytox™ is chemically inert and compatible with all plastics, elastomers, and fabrics used in vehicle construction, and all automotive paint/clearcoat systems – and therefore will not compromise the appearance or mechanical integrity of any component or surface with which it comes into contact.
- The low volatility of Krytox™ enables it to resist drying out over time, so it can perform over the life of vehicle.
- Krytox™ is resistant to washout from water and salt from the road, and steam and detergents from car washes that physically remove other lubricants over time.
- Krytox™ provides a thick lubricating film to separate parts and keep them from squeaking, buzzing, and rattling during vehicle operation.
Whether you’re a supplier of interior systems, suspension components, or closures and sealing—or an engineer responsible for these systems—Krytox TM is the best-performing automotive lubricant available to help eliminate NVH issues, avoid warranty claims, and meet the high expectations of today’s customers.
