Driveline Additives

Our driveline additives are developed for step-type automatic (ATF)continuously variable (CVT), and dual clutch (DCT) transmission types, and are also used in a variety of automotive gear and off-road applications.

Put our expertise to work meeting your transmission fluid needs with the latest technology, or finding the most cost-effective DEXRON®-VI, MERCON® V and JASO products. 

When you do, you’ll be using technologies recognized by world-class companies like GM, Ford, Daimler, VW, Porsche, BMW, Mitsubishi, and Allison.

Driveline Additives 

Our family of driveline additives also includes gear oil additives designed to optimize performance in both rear-axle and manual transmissions.  They’re formulated to meet specific needs for quality, performance, marketable claims, base stock compatibility, environmental responsibility, and cost efficiency.
If your requirements include additives for off-road vehicles, we are ready to serve you there, too.  We offer our customers universal STOU additives and transmission specific (UTTO / TO-4) additives for agricultural tractors, and high-performance additives for construction and mining vehicles. 
In working with OEMs from Mack to Ford to Daimler to Volvo, we’ve accumulated unparalleled industry knowledge and technological capability. We put this experience to use helping suppliers meet today’s OEM requirements for extended drain, fuel economy, and temperature stability.  With these OEM relationships and our billions of miles of driveline expertise, Afton Chemical is ready to meet any engineering, economic, or market demand – now and in the future.
