Development of DCTF

Dual clutch transmission fluid, DCTF needs both MTF and ATF performances. Especially, higher load carrying ability and longer fatigue life on gears are strongly required as the viscosity of DCTF is lower than conventional MTF. This paper explains the key technologies of the DCTF we have developed. By formulating suitable anti-seizure, antiwear, and antioxidant additives the developed DCTF achieves both better load carrying ability and same oxidation stability compared with commercial DCTFs. Furthermore, our DCTF indicates better wet clutch performance than commercial DCTF and ATFs.
