Phillips 66 Lubricants launches e-Shield Line for Electric Vehicles
The e-Shield line provides optimal performance plus excellent thermal and conductive properties enabling longer driving range for electric vehicles.
Phillips 66® Lubricants announced today the launch of Phillips 66® e-ShieldTM, high-performing lubricant solutions to optimize electric vehicle performance and protection. e-Shield is a new line of products, including system fluid, grease and coolant, designed to fulfill the unique needs of electric vehicles.
These lubricants use modern proprietary formulations to enable extended driving range. Excellent thermal and conductive properties keep electric vehicles 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 another example of the company’s ongoing commitment to develop 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 electric vehicles for several major Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM). “Through OEMs-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, Lubricants Research & Product Management. “The e-Shield product line demonstrates the continued innovation of Phillips 66 and our dedication to providing energy for the future.”
When asked how these fluids differ from lubricants used in internal combustion engines (ICE), McQueen explained to JobbersWorld, “The fluid requirements for EVs and BEVs are different than traditional ICE fluids. Performance requirements for EV fluids include improved electrical and oxidation resistance as well as improved thermal properties. Significant research goes into working with equipment manufacturers to insure the fluid and equipment work together to improve battery efficiency.”
e-Shield is one of many 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 electric vehicles 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.
