friction modifiers

By controlling the coefficient of friction (CoF), friction modifiers smooth the transition from static to kinetic condition of moving parts, such as gears. Friction modifiers provide boundary layer protection, preventing direct contact between the metal surfaces. Advances in engine oil technology have resulted in lower viscosity at operating temperatures. While these changes have improved fuel economy, they have created the need for compounds that adhere to pistons, cylinders, and other wetted parts to prevent metal-on-metal contact.  

to increase efficiency and sustainability

Texalene™ Additives offer organic, ashless chemistry with a history of use in a wide variety of formulations. As friction modifiers, these additives enhance vehicle performance, extend component life (contributing to sustainability goals), and offer more efficient operation, making them indispensable in the formulation of modern lubricants.

mobility lubricity improvers for fuels

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.

mobility corrosion inhibitors for lubricants

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.
