Afton automatic transmission fluid additives enable OEMs to improve vehicle designs and oil companies to improve their product portfolios.

What makes Afton® ATFs Automatically FirstTM?

Automatic transmission fluids (ATFs) are among the most complex and sophisticated of all lubricants. ATF additives are formulated using a delicate balance of componentry, and must be capable of functioning well in a variety of transmission, engine and vehicle combinations.

 


Afton Chemical is a global leader in ATF additives – the culmination of many years of research and development with the world’s leading OEMs. Afton leads the way in transmission additives for traditional step-type automatics and newer technologies, such as dual clutch transmissions (DCT) and continuously variable transmissions (CVT).

Afton takes a solutions-oriented approach to deliver the best choice for your project:
