THERMAL MANAGEMENT EV FLUID

Available to car manufacturers

THE CHALLENGE

Next generation battery electric vehicles are moving to direct cooling for battery thermal management in order to enable better vehicle performance and fast charging. Efficient direct cooling requires advanced dielectric coolant technology to maintain battery performance over the lifetime of the vehicle.

 

OUR TECHNOLOGY

Castrol has developed Castrol ON Thermal Management EV Fluid with advanced properties, to enable improved battery thermal management in your EV. Here is what makes it so effective:

  • Has lower viscosity levels than conventional dielectric fluids, such as transformer fluids.
  • Has strong electrical insulation, and a high flash point to protect your battery against breakdown and ignition.
  • Has oxidation resistance, which allows the fluid to maintain performance over fluid lifetime.

THE RESULT

An advanced Thermal Management EV Fluid, which can keep the battery in your EV cool in extreme conditions.

*Castrol EV Fluids benefits are demonstrated in bespoke testing and development. Go further¹, charge faster² and last longer³.
