Afton Chemical's dual clutch transmission (DCT) additive technology provides exceptional friction durability, shear stability and wear performance, and is used in the latest DCTs.
DCTs feature two wet (in-oil) multiplate clutches that allow two gears to be engaged on separate shafts at the same time. The clutches are activated electro-mechanically, engaging and disengaging in unison, routing power from one gear set to another without loss of drive. The result: smooth gear changes and improved fuel economy.
The challenge for a DCT transmission additive is to provide sophisticated frictional properties for the clutch, superior protection for the gear sets and state-of-the-art synchronizer performance across a wide range of synchronizer materials.
