DuPont™ Krytox® Performance Lubricants for Automotive NVH Applications.

Silencing those irritating squeaks, judders and rattles is a continuing challenge as automotive designers and engineers work to lower the noise levels inside new vehicles. DuPont™ Krytox® lubricants can minimize and even eliminate unwanted noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) and reduce surface wear wherever materials make contact.

Since the 1980s, Krytox® automotive lubricants have been successfully damping these bothersome noises and vibrations that can also generate significant damage over time. Minimizing a vehicle’s service and repair frequency — by minimizing NVH — can create higher customer satisfaction levels while potentially reducing an automaker’s costs.

Mechanical systems such as gearboxes, bearings and chains, seals, actuators, valves and other components last longer and run quieter with long-lasting Krytox® oils and greases than with conventional lubricants. Krytox® lubricants stand up to high temperatures 107 °C to 399 °C (225 °F to 750 °F) and harsh environments, and they significantly reduce the chances of component failure — for less maintenance expense. Krytox® lubricants are the long-term solution to NVH issues. Typically, unwanted noises will not occur during a vehicle’s 10-year/100,000 mile service life. They’re also nontoxic, chemically inert, silicone-free and contain no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) or chlorine.

Whether you’re developing engine mounts, body mounts, gaskets, seals, weather stripping or interior surfaces, specially formulated Krytox® vibration-reducing lubricants can help you engineer a quiet vehicle. By damping noises and improving articulation index measurements, you can reach your NVH reduction targets and meet your customers' expectations for a quiet ride.
