USP

Innovation partner

The name Rhenus Lub is synonymous with technological and methodological expertise.

When it comes to the joint development of lubricants, we provide you with a combination of technical development expertise, creativity and sophisticated project methodology. By leveraging these synergies, we develop the perfect lubricants for your application.

USP

Development partner

Straight from simulation to practical test – another advantage of development partnerships with Rhenus Lub. Development teams work together on an interdisciplinary basis, and – following successful simulations of chemical and physical properties – the grease prototypes can be tested and verified directly in our in-house testing laboratories using your original parts and materials.

USP

Solution partner

We’ll also identify solutions when changes are needed in the current series, e.g. in the event of unexpected noise or poor material compatibility. With our test laboratory and international contacts with OEMs, we’re also able to assist you with the approval and validation process.
