LIQUI MOLY launches EV products

LIQUI MOLY, a German lubricant manufacturer, has developed a coolant for fuel cells and a transmission fluid for electric vehicles.

According to LIQUI MOLY, the Fuel Cell Coolant FCF 20 is based on ethylene glycol, combined with non-ionic additives, exhibiting very low electrical conductivity and combining optimum thermal dissipation with outstanding material compatibility and aging stability.

“The heat development in batteries and fuel cells is enormous. The demands on the coolant are correspondingly high. Our FCF 20 is not only designed for thermal release but also offers the LIQUI MOLY’s typical long-term protection for all components,” said David Kaiser, Head of Research and Development at LIQUI MOLY.

As for the new Top Tec Gear EV 510 transmission fluid, Mr Kaiser said, “It is a misconception that electric vehicles do not need oil. They need very high-quality lubricant for the transmission.” For this, LIQUI MOLY offers the right fluid geared towards the high torque of powerful electric motors. The new Top Tec Gear EV 510 gear oil meets the strict manufacturer requirements of Tesla. “We put our entire experience from research into developing special e-products like these new products,” said Mr Kaiser.
