About oil additives at Evonik
Oil additives team at Evonik has taken a leadership role in developing lubricant additive technology designed to improve fuel efficiency and productivity. Energy saving results have been demonstrated with VISCOPLEX® Viscosity Index Improvers (VIIs) in engine oils, driveline fluids and gear oils.
Industrial and off-highway equipment field tests have also recorded up to double-digit improvements in fuel savings with DYNAVIS® technology for hydraulic fluids, reducing operating costs as well as CO2 emissions. Evonik’s VISCOBASE® technology offers an ideal balance between a very shear-stable VII and a synthetic base fluid, providing excellent solvency in automotive gear oil formulations such as heavy duty axle oils and manual transmission fluids.
In all of its many applications, oil additives at Evonik strives for Resource Efficiency. The oil additives business line of Evonik Industries also specializes in high-performance additives and technologies for fuels and refinery products.
Evonik’s VISCOPLEX® Cold Flow Improvers (CFIs) provide outstanding flow properties for biofuels in any region or season. VISCOPLEX® dewaxing aids (DWAs) are designed for refinery solvent dewaxing processes that involve differing lube oil viscosity grades, especially bright stocks.
Advanced regional technology centers, modern global manufacturing centers, and a secure and reliable supply chain worldwide enable Evonik’s continuous development of customized solutions for customers anywhere on earth.
