Automotive Electrical Contact Lubricants

Lubricants designed for automotive electrical applications must protect components from wear and corrosion, while providing protection against external elements such as dust, moisture intrusion, humidity, high engine compartment temperatures and long overnight soaks at -40°C (-40°F). Electrical lubricants should be chosen dependent on contact design (sliding, butt action, slip ring, etc.), contact forces, switching current requirements and compatibility with plastics, elastomers and metals. Low current switching with low contact forces may require a lubricant with different chemical and physical properties compared to switching high current with high contact forces. Some current Syn-Tech applications are:

  • Multifunction Switches
  • Power Window Switches
  • Power Door Switches
  • Power Mirror Switches
  • Trunk Switches
  • Ignition Switches
  • Hazard Warning Switches
  • Headlamp Switches
  • Power Seat Switches
  • HVAC Switches
