SUPERIOR, Wis. (July 5, 2016) — Amsoil Inc. has launched a synthetic fluid for dual-clutch transmissions (DCT) designed to protect against shudder and gear clashing for consistently fast, smooth shifts.
According to Amsoil, the product is designed to provide stop-and-go traffic stability and excel under high-heat conditions. The DCT fluid's built-in oxidation resistance helps prevent sludge formation in vital transmission parts.
Amsoil said DCTs are capable of seamless shifts but can suffer from shudder or lurching at slow speeds. Transmission fluid with specific frictional properties prevents this.
DCT fluid also must maintain the proper viscosity to provide protection during the high-heat operation native to high-performance sports sedans and supercars, the company said.
