Phillips 66 Lubricants on March 9 launched the new Phillips 66 e-Shield high-performing lubricant line to boost electric vehicle performance and protection, according to a media release.
E-Shield is a new line of products, including system fluid, grease and coolant, designed to fulfill the unique needs of electric vehicles.
These lubricants use modern proprietary formulations to enable extended driving range. Excellent thermal and conductive properties keep electric vehicles protected while running cooler and longer per charge, according to the company.
“Years of development and testing resulted in the technology behind the e-Shield products that deliver optimal performance for electric vehicles,” said Chundi Cao, Phillips 66 senior engineer. “We are constantly working to develop products that will meet the needs of an evolving market, and our new e-Shield line is no exception.”
The e-Shield line is another example of the company's commitment to develop the latest technology that reduces emissions and improves energy conservation while ensuring the equipment people depend on worldwide operates efficiently and reliably.
The e-Shield EV system fluid is proven technology used in the factory-fill of electric vehicles for several major original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). “Through OEMs-independent evaluations, the Phillips 66 e-Shield EV system fluid outperformed other fluids by extending the driving range of vehicles," said Scott McQueen, Phillips 66 manager of lubricants research and product management.
The company notes that e-Shield is one of many ways it's involved in the transition to electric vehicles. Phillips 66 is a major supplier of the proprietary graphite needle coke employed in the manufacturing of lithium ion batteries that power electric vehicles across the globe.
