Product and technology innovations
Pioneering XTL technology for a new generation of automotive lubricants that provides significant progress in the field of consumption reduction. Products on the basis of the newly developed XTL technology impress with better cold start behavior and lower consumption in terms of both fuel and oil, while at the same time offering excellent aging stability and operational reliability. XTL is an innovative formulation technology with optimized fluidity properties and unique viscosity-temperature behavior. FUCHS is a driver of innovation in this field.
With its CPX technology, FUCHS set a milestone in corrosion protection at the start of 2012. A revolutionary technology in the field of wax preservation. CPX increases the period of corrosion protection and optimizes the manufacturing process with its gel-like film behavior.
With ECOCOOL PHH AL, FUCHS has developed a universally deployable cooling lubricant for aerospace applications that is suitable for all kinds of material groups, is boron and biocide-free and fulfills the requirements of REACH and TSCA. Beside the standard market engine materials (titanium, nickel and aluminum alloys), the test also had to be passed for older high-strength steels to be approved for use at Lufthansa Technik.
TITAN GT1 0W20 is a groundbreaking zinc-free low viscosity engine oil launched back in the 90s as the first zinc-free performance engine oil as technology platform to prove the possibility of combining the revolutionary zinc-free additive technology with an at that time ultra-low viscosity level and still passing the toughest engine test regimes. Made of 50% made from renewable raw materials at a time where sustainability was no industry driver: an engine oil ahead of its time.
A special product in terms of sustainability is the newly developed RENOLIN Xtreme Temp 46. Thanks to its special composition, it displays fuel saving potential of 3% to 6% in mobile hydraulics applications.
The RENOLIN ZAF B HT range excels through high thermal and oxidative resistance and excellent wear-protection characteristics. In combination with selected mineral oil-based solvent raffinates, the innovative zinc-free and ash-free additive technology guarantees excellent hydraulic and gear oil properties.
With its ANTICORIT CPX range, FUCHS has developed a new formulation category for long-term corrosion protection (10 years). This new wax system guarantees controlled runoff inhibition, both at increased temperatures and at normal ambient temperatures, without compromising penetration into gaps and flanges. It also easy to remove. Individual parameters – such as drying time, run-off tendency, period of corrosion protection and film flexibility – can be customized according to customer requirements. CPX technology is extremely versatile and suitable for a whole host of different applications, whether cavity protection, long-term warehousing or transport protection.
With its GLEITMO SFL 9025 product, FUCHS has succeeded in developing a dry coating that contains a solid lubricant and is used for transmission parts in the automotive industry. This coating enables a controlled break-in process, which takes effect in the first few operating hours of the gearbox and leads to a significant increase in service life.
The new RENOLIN GEAR VCI product is a high performance industrial gear oil that combines the properties of a high performance gear oil with reliable corrosion protection. Thanks to its vapor phase corrosion protection, the product guarantees reliable long-term protection and is used in transmissions that have long downtimes or are stored for an extended period of time.
WISURA FSP 5002 is a high-performance cutting and metalforming oil that contains no chlorine compounds and thereby represents a complete innovation in this product field.
With the cooling lubricant ECOCOOL GLOBAL 10, we have succeeded in catering to the various requirements and release specifications within the aerospace industry. The product, developed specifically for machining aluminum and titanium alloys, complies with legislation in 19 leading aerospace countries. It is free from DEA, TEA, DCHA, chlorine, formaldehyde, silicone and boron and is highly resistant to microbiological contamination. In addition to this, it boasts excellent hard water stability, does not tend to form foam and is also designed for use with very soft water. The cooling lubricant has passed comprehensive laboratory tests in line with the machining protocols of leading aerospace companies and was able to confirm the high expectations of international customers in many field tests.
