Evonik Publish Oil Additives Application Guide

Evonik’s oil additives team has created a product application guide as a new tool for its customers to aid in the selection of its oil additives products and technologies.

The product application guide outlines Evonik’s product and technology portfolio and includes a comprehensive listing and explanation of the VISCOPLEX® and VISCOBASE® product lines: VISCOPLEX® viscosity index improvers, VISCOPLEX® pour point depressants (PPDs), VISCOPLEX® dewaxing aids, VISCOPLEX® fuel additives, VISCOPLEX® defoamer additives and VISCOBASE® synthetic base fluids.

In addition, the product application guide explains how the VISCOPLEX® and VISCOBASE® product lines can be efficiently used in applications like hydraulic fluids, driveline fluids, oil refineries, engine oils and specialty applications. “The new product application guide helps highlight oil additives’ unique ability to assist customers with customized formulations in specialty application areas,” said Oliver Eyrisch, director, marketing and branding for oil additives.

The interactive product application guide can be found on Evonik’s oil additives web pages.
