New Products

New bio-based grease additive (V-4051)

Functional V-4051 is low treat liquid additive for improving water spray-off and mechanical stability of greases. This product is differentiated by its unique formulation which replaces all petroleum oils with bio-based diluent. V-4051 provides exceptional water spray-off improvement at treat rates as low as 1wt% in soap-based and calcium sulfonate greases while contributing no petroleum residue. This product is ideal for enhancing bio-based or environmentally acceptable lubricant (EAL) greases but V-4051 will also work in petroleum greases.

New naphthenic viscosity modifier (V-158FN)

Functional V-158FN is a 45 SSI OCP viscosity modifier formulated in a low viscosity naphthenic oil. This product uses a synergy of low temperature polymer and oil to provide excellent pour points and flow at low temperature even at ISO grades up to 10,000. V-158FN is ideal for wireline greases, oil/gas exploration, and mining where economic but high performance solutions are demanded.

New ultra high MW tackifier (V-175)

Functional V-175 is a polyisobutylene (PIB) tackifier which uses an ultra high molecular weight grade of polymer to impart very high levels of tackiness in lubricants and greases with minimal treat. Stringiness and other viscoelastic effects (wetting, anti-mist, tack) are greatly improved with higher molecular weights. This product is ideal for textile lubricants, chain oils, and high speed single pass applications.

New High-Temperature Tackifier

Functional V-380 has been developed as a high temperature tackifier using a new technology developed for polyisobutylene products. Functional V-380 has greatly reduced tack loss during prolonged high-temperature (150-200˚C) operation and is formulated in a thermally stable mineral oil. Functional V-380 is compatible with Group II and OCP-based additives.

New Grease Additive Announced

A new highly concentrated liquid grease additive, FUNCTIONAL V-4033, has been developed to improve water spray-off in greases. The liquid additive contains a grafted polymer that will react with the soap to improve adhesion to metal surfaces. The concentrated liquid reduces treat rates compared to other liquid additives and increases the consistency of the blending results when compared to solid additives.

The product can be blended into the grease at the beginning of the reaction or added with the cooling oil. The liquid additive flows at room temperature and can be heated to facilitate handling.
