Decisions taken to reduce carbon emissions around the world also play a major role in the future of electric and hybrid vehicles. This change, which will be experienced in the medium and long term, creates a need for products suitable for new technologies in the lubricants sector ”.
"EV (Electric Vehicle) Fluids separates from conventional oils"
Total Mineral Oils developed special lubricating and cooling fluids by focusing on four important issues required by electric and hybrid vehicles:
- Insulation: An essential safety requirement for any use with electric current.
- Warming: In electric models, heat is released quickly and the products prevent the batteries from heating up during high acceleration or fast charging.
- To protect the mechanical components, to provide less friction and to ensure that the transmissions and other components required for the efficient operation of vehicles for a long time oiling.
Özgecan Çakıcı said, “The products in our EV Fluids product range have the standard lubrication, cooling and anti-friction properties of traditional engine and transmission oils, as well as insulation with dielectric feature, compatibility with materials, comfortable operation with the materials of electric motor technology and thermal properties, against the risk of fire at very high temperatures. ensures safe work ”, he added.
