Phillips 66 Lubricants released its new e-Shield high-performing lubricant solutions to optimize electric vehicle (EV) performance and protection. E-Shield is a new line of products, including system fluid, grease, and coolant, designed to fulfill the unique needs of EVs.
The lubricants use modern proprietary formulations to enable extended driving range. Thermal and conductive properties keep EVs protected while running cooler and longer per charge.
“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 an example of the company’s commitment to developing the latest technology that reduces emissions and improves energy conservation while ensuring that the equipment people depend on worldwide operates efficiently and reliably.
The e-Shield EV system fluid is proven technology currently used in the factory-fill of EVs for several major original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). “Through OEM-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 e-Shield product line demonstrates the continued innovation of Phillips 66 and our dedication to providing energy for the future.”
E-Shield is one of the ways Phillips 66 products support the energy transition. Phillips 66 is a major supplier of the proprietary graphite needle coke employed in the manufacturing of lithium-ion batteries that power EVs across the globe. The company recently announced a technical collaboration with Faradion to develop anode materials for sodium-ion batteries, a next-generation energy storage technology.
