Our Company

Magneto-Rheological (MR) Fluid Contact Us

LORD magneto-rheological (MR) fluids can respond instantly to varying levels of a magnetic field precisely and proportionally for controllable energy-dissipating applications, such as brakes, shocks and dampers. When exposed to a magnetic field, the rheology of LORD MR fluids reversibly and instantaneously changes from a free-flowing liquid to a semi-solid with controllable yield strength. Response time for all LORD MR fluids is <5 ms; however, exact time is dependent on device design. All of our fluids are gray in color and redisperse easily with proper agitation. The iron particles contained in the fluid are between 1 to 20 microns.

 

LORD is proud to be the exclusive supplier of MR Fluid technology to BWI for their MagnerideTM primary suspension system for automotive applications.  First introduced in 2002, the system now appears on more than 1,000,000 vehicles from multiple automotive OEMs including Ferrari, Audi, GM, Land Rover and others.  The rapid acceptance of the technology by a wide range of manufacturers, from high-performance sports cars to SUVs, demonstrates the confidence the automotive industry has in the performance, reliability and durability of LORD MR technology.
