In transportation, lubricants are used to help reduce the friction between moving parts. The utility of any base lubricant can be enhanced with lubricant additives. Functionalities that an additive can improve include friction modification to reduce the wear of automotive parts and prolong the life of engines, corrosion inhibition to protect the internal surface of the engine or transmission, and dispersion used to minimize sludge formation and neutralize acidic components.learn more
Lubricity improvers are used in fuel to avoid excessive wear on fuel pumps and injectors. The use of lubricity improvers is increasing, driven by highly refined fuels to improve fuel efficiency and reduce friction. Tighter design tolerances drive the need for the prevention of deposits and optimization of ignition timing, maximizing the fuel efficiency of the modern computer-controlled engine. Texalene™ 74 Series offers organic, ashless chemistry that helps extend maintenance intervals and engine life which reduces the environmental impact of servicing combustion engines.
increase sustainable content in your lubricant
Bio-based lubricant intermediates allow formulators to use a sustainable backbone to create high-performance viscosity modifiers that are derived from the castor bean. Accentuating the naturally occurring properties of castor oil derivatives, Texalene viscosity modifiers for oils strike a balance between high affinity for the surface under shear and performance stability over a range of temperatures and conditions. Texalene viscosity modifiers for greases act as thickeners in lithium-based formulations.
The use of lithium-ion batteries is increasing in electric vehicles (EVs) as the world looks for environmentally friendly transportation options. In EVs this rechargeable power source replaces all petro-chemical based fuels. Lithium-ion batteries use strong acids such as hydrofluoric acid inside the battery. There is a need for scavenging this acid to prevent electrode damage and improve capacity retention. Reillex™ Resins help neutralize the effect of excess acid and prolong battery life.
Corrosion inhibitors help to decrease maintenance costs and lengthen the life of the equipment. In closed-loop automotive systems, like engines, gearboxes, and transmissions, corrosion inhibitor technology protects against moisture intrusion. When using Texalene™ Corrosion Inhibitors, water molecules and other corrosive species in the lubricant are displaced from metal surfaces in favor of our film-forming compounds.
Diesel exhaust systems rely on catalysts to help reduce Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) emissions from the engine by converting these compounds into Nitrogen and Oxygen before they can contribute to harmful air pollution, such as smog and acid rain. 3,5-Lutidine finds use in the manufacturing process for the diesel catalyst as a structure-directing agent; helping give shape to the intricate lattice support to which the precious metal catalyst adheres.
