Automatic transmission fluids (ATFs) are some of the most complicated and highly developed lubricants on the market because they are expected to deliver long-term protection to a variety of components. Additionally, different automatic transmissions have unique friction requirements which changes the performance requirements of the fluid and additives. It is critical to the long-life and performance of your driveline to use the right transmission fluid. Using the wrong transmission fluid can lead to transmission problems including excessive wear, increased noise and vibration, and premature failure. Afton Chemical ATF additives are formulated to deliver balanced componentry that meets the diverse needs of OEMs and oil marketers.
Transmission Fluid Additive Packages
Afton Chemical’s core automatic transmission fluid (ATF) additives are highlighted below. Traditionally, a separate additive package was required to formulate both step-type fluid and CVT fluids. However, Afton’s new technology HiTEC® 3488
allows for premium-tier formulations of both step-type and CVT fluid. Contact us to speak with a technical representative and to request claims data.
