The pressure to increase fuel economy has implications beyond engine design and motor oil. Fuel economy is also driving transmission manufacturers to add gears in the move toward continuously variable, dual-clutch, and electric-variable transmissions. As with engine oil, the trend is toward lower viscosity fluids to reduce internal friction and enhance gear protection. This places new stress on the lubricant and requires higher performing base oils and additive technologies. With high performance profile and unique viscometric properties, NovaSpec™ Base Oil formulations help these new technologies meet the heightening demands for increased fuel efficiency.
A high-performing base oil is critical to transmission applications where the fluid is expected to last 100,000 miles or longer. NovaSpec Base Oils provide the foundation for transmission fluids that go the distance by performing under extreme temperature and load conditions. Novvi formulations have been shown to outperform petroleum-derived formulas in extreme pressure situations, providing transmissions with the lubricating protection necessary at lower viscosity levels.
NovaSpec 350 and 450 synthetic renewable base oils provide formulators with unique options in the lower viscosity ranges, offering excellent oxidative stability and low volatility that deliver strong advantages in the final fluid composition. NovaSpec-based transmission fluid provides longer life and reduced maintenance to help reduce operational costs. Their storage, handling, and recyclability ease the transition for engineers and technicians, increasing performance and environmental responsibility without adding complexity.
NovaSpec Base Oils are plant-based synthetic oils designed to deliver high performance, while offering major environmental benefits when compared with petroleum-sourced base oils. Ecofriendly advantages include nontoxicity, renewability, and improved biodegradability.
Novvi encourages and supports others’ efforts to formulate new product applications from its revolutionary NovaSpec Base Oils and also offers a wide range of preformulated oils and lubricants.
