Klüber Lubrication has won the German Innovation Award presented annually by the German Design Council. The manufacturer for speciality lubricants was recognised in two categories: in “Material Surface” for the innovative technology of its hydro lubricants and in the “Design Thinking” category for the equally cutting-edge process used to develop them. Klüber Lubrication released its first hydro lubricant for gear lubrication in early 2018; hydro lubricants for other applications are currently in development.

 

“Our new hydro lubricants represent a revolution in lubricant technology”, explains Samira El Allam, Innovation Manager at Klüber Lubrication. “Using water as a functional constituent in lubricants opens up entirely new applications that offer our customers in various industries sustainability and performance advantages. These advantages range from extremely low friction coefficients to improved workplace safety and sustainability.” In addition to the product itself, the jury also found the innovative and agile development process worthy of an award in the “Design Thinking” category.
