PERFORMANCE ADDITIVES


Anti-Wear

Wear protection is an important characteristic of a lubricant. With our Zinc based and ashless chemistries, Soltex anti-wear additives enable you to achieve excellent anti-wear performance.

Antioxidants

Antioxidants provide longevity to a lubricant and protects it from thermal and oxidative degradation. With our aminic and phenolic chemistries you can achieve superb oxidative stability to your lubricants.

Detergents

Detergents are additives designed to clean metal surfaces within an engine and prevent the build-up of deposits. The insoluble by-products of the combustion process are removed by the detergents in the lubricant. Soltex offers both overbased and neutral sulfonates to meet your needs.

Dispersants

Dispersants help to prevent sludge, varnish and other deposits from forming on critical metal surfaces. They are used in automotive applications and also serve as an emulsifier in some industrial applications. Soltex’s PIBSI is made with a unique chlorine free process to provide superior dispersancy.

Pour Point Depressants

The pour point of a fuel or oil is the lowest temperature at which it will pour when cooled under defined conditions. In general, the pour point is indicative of the amount of wax in an oil. Pour point depressants are used in most lubricant types, including crankcase engine oils, automatic and power transmission fluids, automotive gear oils, tractor fluids, hydraulic fluids, and circulating oils.

Tackifiers

Tackifiers increase the adhesive properties of a lubricant, preventing dripping and splashing during operation which helps to reduce operational cost and the risk of environmental contamination. Soltex’s tackifiers are a combination of high molecular weight polymers in selected mineral oils. By contributing significantly to lubricant retention, film thickness and surface adhesion, these additives help ensure hydrodynamic lubrication over a wide range of conditions and add an element of corrosion protection.

Viscosity Modifiers

Viscosity index improvers are polymeric and are added to lubricants to reduce the degree of change in viscosity seen at high and low temperatures. Mineral oil lubricants become less effective at high temperatures because heat reduces their viscosity and film-forming ability. The traditional solution to this problem was to make seasonal oil changes in some applications. With the advent of viscosity improvers, that’s no longer necessary or desirable.
