We are pleased to announce that the 2022 recipient is Evogen 4006 from the Lubrizol Corporation. The global passenger vehicle market has seen a rapid increase in the number of electric and hybrid electric vehicles, however, existing lubricants are not optimised to provide the efficiency and requisite protection of e-devices. Lubrizol launched the Evogen 4001 additive technology in 2019 to address the tougher e-environment. At the time of commercialisation, the product was the first dedicated e-axle fluid available around the world. Original equipment manufacturers have their own unique electric motor design, thus requiring a specific lubricant for their electric motors to fit their needs for better performance. Thus, in 2020, Lubrizol developed Evogen 4006 for a Chinese OEM using a wet electric motor. Evogen 4006 improves copper corrosion protection and enhances electric properties while maintaining excellent gear/bearing protection compared to conventional manual transmission fluids (MTF). Lubrizol has carefully balanced the anti-wear and extreme pressure chemistry to achieve an ideal equilibrium of load carrying, copper corrosion protection and electrical conductivity. These have been rigorously evaluated in conventional lubricant tests as well as new tests better suited to the new environment, such as the copper wire corrosion test. The additive package also offers improved oxidative stability and potential for efficiency gains by enabling durability at low viscosity. Lubrizol also anticipates a 39.2% reduction in carbon dioxide emissions compared with conventional MTFs. F+L Week 2022 will be held from April 27-29 at the Siam Anantara Bangkok in Thailand. Virtual registration (live streaming and on-demand) is also available through our powerful networking platform, which will be launched on April 15.
