EV transmission operates at higher speeds and temperatures than transmission in a conventional vehicle. These transmissions contain embedded electrical and electronic components such as E-motors and power electronics which need to be cooled and protected. It contains sealing and coating materials that need to be maintained. The fluids exhibit cooling and high electrical resistance properties in order to prevent breakdown. E-Fluids are a fine balancing act of chemistry and physics. We, at Gulf, are proud to introduce this product technology in India, which is a major market for OEMs and electric vehicles.”
