Additive Componentry

Although additives typically make a small portion of an overall lubricant formulation, they are critical to the performance of the end product. Additives are key sources of anti-corrosion, anti-wear, extreme pressure, lubricity, anti-oxidation, viscosity improvement and increased solubility to a chosen base oil mixture.

Additives are sourced in two forms, either as a package or as single components. Additive packages are designed with an end product specification in mind. Componentry is sourced when formulators wish design specific additive blends to meet unique performance requirements or challenges.

Additives are being utilized in a broad range of lubricant market segments, with the most prevalent being Aerosol, Lubricant & Grease Manufacturers, Metal Working, Fuel & Additive Componentry, HI & I, and Mining.
