The Lubrizol Corporation Key Developments

The Lubrizol Corporation Introduces New SAE 0W-16 Additives for ULV Lubricants

The Lubrizol Corporation has introduced its series of additives for SAE 0W-16 ultra-low viscosity, or ULV, lubricants. ULV oils require the right additives. Lubrizol announces the introduction of a new additive to better enable SAE 0W-16 lubricants: Lubrizol PV1016. The first product in Lubrizol's SAE 0W-16 series, Lubrizol PV1016 supports API SN licensable lubricants and offers ultra-low viscosity efficiency with superior durability. The demands of delivering efficiency have changed attitudes toward product development. Simply reducing the viscosity of lubricants to achieve improved fuel economy is insufficient to protect more powerful engines.

Lubrizol expects to begin supplying LUCANT products in the first quarter of 2015 and both Mitsui Chemicals and Lubrizol are committed to making the transition as seamless as possible for existing LUCANT customers.
