Knowing the Requirements
There are various requirements in the automotive industry. With each new generation of automobiles come enormous
innovations regarding comfort, security and environmental compatibility. Technically optimised motors always achieve
better performance. Moreover, the construction details of modern vehicles are getting more and more complex because
of the electrical and electronic components.
The permanent pressure to keep costs down and make savings in weight requires the selection of new materials and
smaller system components with improved quality and functional reliability. BECHEM’s strategy is to offer automobile
customers a global partnership in the field of lubricant development and to ensure production tailored to the latest

The testing machines used by BECHEM can simulate real conditions, such as vibrational strain and unfavourable environmental
conditions, and this makes a substantial contribution to shorter development cycles for our customers in the automotive industry.
By means of these test procedures we develop intelligent lubricants, which are more resistant to high and low temperatures, to
heavy loads, to climatic conditions, substances, and which offer a longer service life. Our quality management system guarantees
that the properties of the BECHEM lubricants meet customer requirements.
Material Compatibility and Noise Damping
Aside from the wide range of applications, it is the compatibility of our lubricants with plastics and elastomers that is one of the
most innovative solutions in automotive technology. In order to find the most suitable lubricant for the various elastomers, numerous
tests are required, e.g. with regard to swelling, te
