Dual-clutch transmissions (DCTs) are automatic transmissions based on the mechanism of manual transmissions. The complex system essentially consists of two manual transmissions in the same housing. As one clutch is engaged, the other readies the next appropriate gear, minimizing the interruption of power and improving performance and efficiency.

Atlantic Gearmax-Syn DCT is a full synthetic transmission fluid for use in “wet” Dual Clutch Transmissions. It delivers maximum protection and performance over wide operating temperatures and service conditions. Suitable for use is many DCT transmissions as found in Audi/VW, BMW, Citroen/ Peugeot, Ford, Nissan, Ferrari, Mercedes Benz, Mitsubishi, Renault, Seat and Volvo. Always refer to the Atlantic Lube Guide for the correct product application.
