Evonik Oil Additives has showcased its innovative VISCOBASE® synthetic base fluids in a new video titled, “Breakthrough Blend,” focusing on their utility as a cost-effective alternative to PAO.

The Breakthrough Blend video highlights the technical and economic benefits of formulating automotive and industrial lubricants with VISCOBASE® synthetic base fluids. VISCOBASE® fluids provide effective viscosity control at low temperatures, extended fluid service life in high-shear applications and superior blending efficiency. Delivering highly cost-effective and superior performance, VISCOBASE®aids DI package solvency and can be tailor-made for manual transmission oils, rear axle oils, general industrial gear oils, wind turbine gearbox lubricants and other specialized end-use applications.

“VISCOBASE® is an excellent alternative to other synthetic stocks like PAO or PAGs, meeting lubricant cost goals and matching performance in every measure,” said Aidan Rose, global business segment manager for Evonik Oil Additives.
