Afton Chemical launches HiTEC® 35701

The world’s first Electrified Transmission Fluid additive specifically created for all eAxle types including direct-cooled electric motors with multi-speed systems.

Afton Chemical has announced the launch of the world’s first Electrified Transmission Fluid (ETF) additive created for direct-cooled electric motors with multi-speed systems - HiTEC® 35701 - into their eMobilty additive range. Having been rolled out early to OEM and oil marketer customers through 2020, this product is something truly new and delivers key platform technology for battery electric vehicles.

The greater the number of demands made upon one lubricant, the more important it is to design a dedicated fluid for the application. As the electric vehicle market evolves, direct cooling concepts are becoming more popular. Current trends show there have been an increase in direct cooling and multi-speed transmissions, which has created a need for a product that is fully future-proofed, covers all future trends and can work with different hardware architectures.

HiTEC® 35701 ETF additive is designed for all eAxles including wet multi-speed for use in electric vehicle drives in passenger cars and commercial vehicles. This makes it the world’s first complete eAxle additive, meeting the needs of OEMs with a range of hardware, in just one product. It balances the needs of the electric motor with friction performance to offer engineers the capability to add a shifting device for multi-speed. The requirements of the electric motor and the axle systems push the requirements beyond what traditional transmission fluids can offer. It meets new needs with excellent electrical properties before and after ageing, strong copper protection in liquid and vapour phase and good oxidation prevention whilst also advancing core performance in protection of gears and bearings. HiTEC® 35701 ETF additive is ready to adapt to the future with carefully balanced performance.

HiTEC® 35701 ETF additive is available to sample immediately.
