Advancements in fluid technology are encouraged
As the world embraces new concepts in mobility, greater emphasis is placed on vehicle fluid performance, capability, timeliness, and dependability. IFC helps the industry maintain forward momentum by simplifying the fluid specification development process.
The International Fluids Consortium (IFC) was established in 2020 by 11 vehicle manufacturers, to replace the current fragmented regional approach to developing automotive lubricant specifications with a more efficient global system. Engine oil development is still one of the most effective ways to improve fuel economy. The consortium is looking to develop a system that balances the time taken
Abstract: The International Fluids Consortium (IFC) is a not-for-profit organization created by vehicle manufacturers to encourage innovation and improve performance of fluids to meet the needs of current and future vehicles. IFC’s mission is to develop and maintain performance-based fluid specifications for optimizing vehicle performance while promoting global awareness, availability, and use of approved fluids. Read more
