BECHEM lubricants are used by almost all automotive manufacturers and numerous suppliers to the automotive industry. For decades, BECHEM has been developing solutions for automotive systems and system components, and offering automotive customers a global partnership in the areas of lubricant development and production. Customer integration in lubricant development is absolutely critical for future product solutions.

 

Intensive research and development as well as the latest equipment are the cornerstone of innovative automotive lubricants. In the BECHEM laboratories, the latest chemical/physical testing and analysis systems are available to characterize lubricants, monitor their application, analyze customer problems, and finally to develop the appropriate lubricant solutions. The testing of lubricants on model systems, original components and materials, as well as the simulation of various, vehicle-based operating conditions all play an important role in reducing the development times of our customers. Besides collaborations with universities, BECHEM maintains excellent contacts with industrial partners in dosing and materials handling technology, measurement and control technology, process engineering and coating technology.

Interior componentsMaximize comfort

Through a targeted vibration absorption and an optimized friction coefficient, BECHEM lubricants enable controlled and reproducible movement processes in all interior components, e.g., cup holders arm rests, door coverings, stowage compartments, activations, and switch systems.

 

BECHEM products therefore make a considerable contribution to the functionality and haptics of interior components, while also permanently increasing the value of components and vehicles. Products specifically designed for noise reduction improve the driving comfort.
