What Are Broad Match Fluids? - Transmission Digest

What Are Broad Match Fluids?

Sponsored by ENEOS

According to Counterman Magazine’s February 2021 article Selling Functional Fluids, “Functional automotive fluids make up a broad category, with a wide range of very specialized and unique applications…. Some of the most diverse functional fluids are for transmissions. Today’s shops need to carry many specific fluids, or several universal fluids to meet customer needs.”

ENEOS prefers to call these multi-vehicle fluids ‘broad match’ because they are designed for a large number of vehicles. Juggling too many transmission fluids is a problem broad match fluids are designed to address. 

CONFIRMED SPECIFICATIONS

As an OE factory fill supplier and R&D partner, ENEOS has access to transmission specifications most companies don’t. This allows ENEOS to create formulations that meet or exceed confirmed vehicle specifications for a very large number of vehicles. 

BROAD MATCH ATF

ENEOS ECO ATF PLUS  is a broad match fluid, meeting over 86% of confirmed automatic transmission specifications in the US and Canada. 

SUPPORTING CVT TECHNOLOGY

ENEOS ECO CVT FLUID is a broad match CVT fluid meeting specifications of most CVTs. As an added benefit, it is also able to improve CVT accelerating performance as well as provide noise reduction. 

VERSATILE GEAR OIL

Due to the properties of ENEOS Gear Oil 75-90 GL-5 LSD, it is suitable for equipment requiring 75W, 75W-90, 80W, 80W-90, 85W, 85W-90, and 90 viscosities, including differential gears and Limited Slip Differentials (LSD). 

VISCOSITY MATTERS

Transmission fluid is one of the few TRUE low viscosity fluids cars require, but viscosity requirements are one of the specifications not provided in technical data. With an OE supplier, you can trust that the fluids are the required viscosity for the designed performance. 

ENEOS high-quality transmission fluids not only meet or exceed vehicle specifications, including viscosity requirements, but are also formulated to improve fuel economy and provide resistance to mechanical shear and fatigue, resulting in longer-lasting equipment and exceptional performance.
