Escalating Demand for Efficiency to Propel Market

At high temperatures, mineral oil lubricants are less effective as heating reduces their viscosity and the capacity of film forming. In certain applications, the traditional solution to this problem was to make seasonal oil changes. This is no longer necessary or desirable when the viscosity index improves. The improved lubricant viscosity index helps the lubricant blender achieve the required substantial characteristics, such as reducing the tendency of lubrication to change when temperatures fluctuate to protect equipment at extreme temperatures.

Viscosity index improvers reduce the dependency of lubrication viscosity to change temperature increase or decrease. Viscosity enhancers are two key features, shear stability, and thickening efficiency. All of these can be achieved by selecting proper viscosity index improvers to achieve excellent fuel efficiency, durability, and performance. The application of an improver viscosity index achieves maximum efficiency, improves even at low temperatures and protects the equipment against harmful usage.
