Automotive Interior NVH Product Line: eliminate interior noise once and for all.

Krytox™ long-lasting, high-performance lubricants help you deliver the quiet ride today’s drivers demand. Offering onceand-done lifetime lubrication, broad material compatibility, and non-migrating properties, the portfolio of Krytox™ fullysynthetic perfluoropolyether (PFPE) oils and greases contain the perfect solution for eliminating noise generated from friction or vibration between any components and materials in the vehicle cabin.

 

Choose the Krytox™ high performance lubricant solution that’s right for you.

The following diagram and table detail the specific interior applications, properties, and benefits of our Krytox™ lubricants for NVH and BSR issues, so you can select the solution that meets your challenges. From sunroofs and cup holders to gear shifters and brake pedal assemblies, our variety of high-performance lubricants tackle NVH (noise, vibration, and harshness) and BSR (buzz, squeak, and rattle) throughout the vehicle—even in the most extreme conditions—ensuring a luxury ride every time.
