Most equipment used in automotive manufacturing have spindles, gearboxes, mechanical or hydraulic presses, slides, and cylinders that require lubrication. Lubrication fluids prevent wear but become contaminated over time. Surfaces begin to touch, seals leak, hydraulic valves stick, friction builds, temperatures rise, and wear accelerates. But all of these can be controlled by simply controlling the level of contamination in lubricants and hydraulic fluids. Desiccant breathers, filter carts, and Visual Oil Inspection tools are just a few of the ways you can keep your lubricants clean, dry, and at the correct level.
DOWSIL adhesives and sealant formulations provide durable bonding, sealing and gasketing and help prevent component failures in the automotive industry. They reduce costly warranty repairs and improve driving comfort.
