About Silkolene

Fuchs-Silkolene is one of the world’s largest ranges of specialist motorcycle and motorsport lubricants, developed on the race track to ensure ultimate performance and protection.

Originally known as Dalton and Company after its founder, the Company changed its name to Silkolene Lubricants in the early 80’s in recognition of the strength of the brand name. In 1989 the Company became a member of the German Fuchs Group, a major international force in advanced lubrication technology, and now operates as Fuchs Lubricants (UK) plc with Silkolene being the Group’s motorcycle range brand name.

Historically the Silkolene brand gained international status with specialist oils for engines as diverse as the Spitfire’s Merlin and involvement with Concorde’s development.
Silkolene worked for many years with the United States Airforce on a technical collaboration programme for strategic purposes.
The project involved many aspects of synthetic lubrication technology and saw the Company become a leader in the field.

In the early 1980s, utilising the synthetics technology developed for aerospace applications, the Company successfully entered the UK motorsports market with Silkolene rally teams and a long term Sponsorship arrangement with the Honda UK Motorcycle Race Team. Following a measured strategy of extensive research and development coupled with track testing at the highest levels of competition, the Silkolene brand soon became the UK market leader.

Today the brand is manufactured in the UK, Mainland Europe, USA and South East Asia. Silkolene products are distributed in over 40 different countries.

The Silkolene name has been linked with many great power sports achievements at European, USA and World levels, proving Silkolene lubricants to be world class in all motorsport activities including motorcycles, watercraft, car racing and kart racing. In motorcycle racing, the brand is the first choice of factory teams such as Honda, Kawasaki and Suzuki. In motorcycle road racing Silkolene riders have scored many significant successes in Grand Prix World Championships, World Superbikes and the Isle of Man TT, possibly the hardest road race of them all.

The Company’s greatest strength lies in its ability to develop and modify advanced technology to meet the specific requirements of niche markets – manufacturing specific products for precise applications. The Silkolene brand is the `research led, race bred` range of `add value` products designed and manufactured to meet the unique requirements of motorcycles.

Being part of the Fuchs Group, the Company benefits from rapid innovations and a high degree of specialisation. Fuchs Lubricants (UK) plc has been designated as the Fuchs Group’s Motorcycle Lubricants Marketing Centre co-ordinating the exclusivity and strength of the Silkolene brand and technology
