The company manufactures chemical components that are selected to perform one or more specific functions and combine those chemicals with other components to form additive packages for use in specified end-user applications. Lubricant Additives: Lubricant additives are essential ingredients for lubricating oils. Lubricant additives are used in various vehicle and industrial applications, including engine oils, transmission fluids, off-road equipment, gear oils, hydraulic oils, turbine oils, industrial oils, metalworking fluids and in any other application where metal-to-metal moving parts are utilized. Lubricant additives are organic and synthetic chemical components that improve wear protection, prevent deposits, and protect against the hostile operating environment of an engine, transmission, axle, hydraulic pump, or industrial machine. Lubricants are used in operating machinery from heavy industrial equipment to transportation vehicles. Lubricants provide a layer of protection between moving mechanical parts. The company offers a line of lubricant additive packages, each of which includes component chemicals specially selected to perform desired functions. The company manufactures majority of the chemical components and blends these components to create formulated additives packages designed to meet industry and customer specifications. Lubricant additive components are generally classified based upon their intended functionality, including detergents, which clean moving parts of engines and machines, suspend oil contaminants and combustion by-products, and absorb acidic combustion products; dispersants, which serve to inhibit the formation of sludge and particulates; extreme pressure/antiwear agents, which reduce wear on moving engine and machinery parts; viscosity index modifiers, which improve the viscosity and temperature characteristics of lubricants and help the lubricant flow evenly to all parts of an engine or machine; and antioxidants, which prevent oil from degrading over time. The company supplies specially formulated lubricant additives that combine some or all of the components to develop its products worldwide. Its products are highly formulated, complex chemical compositions derived from extensive research and testing to ensure all additive components work together to provide the intended results. The company’s products are engineered to meet specifications prescribed by either the industry or a specific customer.
