3. Shear Stability

Maintaining viscosity under various temperature conditions solely depends on shear stability. With very good shear stability, our DCT ATF fluid provides consistent performance and protection against viscosity breakdown thereby enhancing the lifespan of transmission.

4. Water Resistance

One of the standout features of our DCT ATF fluid is its excellent water resistance. This property provides durability and protection to the transmission components. It reduces the chances of premature wear and tear ensuring the vehicle’s smooth operation even under challenging circumstances.

5. Low Pour Point

Avana DCT ATF oil guarantees versatility by exhibiting very good low-temperature properties. The low pour point prevents oil from thickening resulting in efficient circulation and lubrication under extremely low temperatures. It enhances the fluidity and functionality of the transmission system. This feature is highly beneficial during cold starts, ensuring your transmission system is protected from the outset.

6. Friction Properties and Clutch Performance

The exceptional friction properties of our DCT ATF oil contribute to the increased clutch performance. The fluid creates a protective shield between the moving components of the system to prevent the friction that may occur during the system’s functioning. The anti-friction properties result in smooth gear transitions and a responsive driving experience.

7. Compatible with Seals

Avana DCT ATF fluid is formulated with the property of compatibility with seals. This compatibility ensures a tight seal, preventing leakage and preserving the efficiency of the system.

8. Prevention Against Wear, Corrosion, and Foam

Avana DCT ATF oil is not only wear-resistant but also combats corrosion and foam formation. The anti-foaming properties in the oil prevent the formation of foams and enhance the durability of the transmission system. The corrosion inhibitors guard against all forms of corrosion and thereby enhance the system performance and extend the lifespan of critical components. This comprehensive protection reduces the risk of costly repairs.
