Introducing TDF

An advanced traction drive fluid improves the performance of engines equipped with a continuously variable transmission. Under on-going research and development for more than 20 years, Idemitsu's product TDF is optimized to ensure maximum transmission performance.

Having received a range of awards for excellence, TDF was created through the development of exclusive synthetic technologies that provide an optimal balance between traction performance and low-temperature fluidity. After undergoing rigorous fleet tests for compatibility with every metal part of continuously variable transmissions including variators and gears, TDF was then subjected to further testing with organic materials such as rubbers, resins and clutch materials to ensure wide-ranging applicability.

TDF excels in engines with a continuously variable transmission (CVT), particularly traction or toroidal CVTs. To learn more about Idemitsu's TDF product, select from the links below.
