Press release date: August 2, 2011
Klübersynth RA 44-702 specially developed for the lubrication of plastic parts inside cars
Londonderry, NH - Klüber Lubrication, one of the world's leading manufacturers of specialty lubricants, announces Klübersynth RA 44-702, a fully synthetic grease of high viscosity that was developed for the lubrication of plastic parts inside cars.
Klübersynth RA 44-702, which does not contain any silicone, mechanically dampens and reduces noise of slowly moving parts. The grease, which has no odor, can be used for both plastic/plastic and plastic/metal material pairings.
Oils or bonded coatings are applied to hundreds of points in every car, including brakes, steering assembly, engine components, gear shift, clutch and gears, or in seemingly minor components like door modules. Klübersynth RA 44-702 helps reduce oscillation, noise and vibration and provides a pleasant high-quality feel when handling the car components, even at low temperatures. For example, the grease can greatly improve the feel of operating switches or adjusting armrests and seat rails. Other applications include mechanical switches and rotary controls, ventilation flaps, sun visors, ashtrays, cup holders, storage boxes and sunroofs.
Klübersynth RA 44-702 has good resistance to abrasion and has been tested on more than 100 standard and customized rigs to surpass the stringent requirements of the automotive industry.
