Viscosity modifiers are designed to reduce a lubricant’s change in viscosity when subjected to changes in temperature. As it is one of the key ingredients in an engine oil, viscosity modifier selection is an important consideration in formulating quality engine lubricants.
Infineum offers two distinct families of viscosity modifiers to meet diverse performance requirements: the Infineum SV and Infineum V500 brands.
With their styrene-based chemistry, our Infineum SV products are designed to deliver the demanding performance required of today's top-tier lubricants, including OEM factory fill and synthetic lubricants. The benefits include outstanding retention of low temperature pumpability throughout the life of the lubricant, the widest range of shear stability in the industry and unique product differentiation opportunities.
Our Infineum V500 products utilise olefin co-polymer (OCP)-based chemistry. They are designed to formulate mainline lubricants with a wide array of performance attributes and mid-range shear stability. The benefits include simplification of blend plant logistics, compatibility with a broad range of base stocks and extremely high retention of low-temperature pumpability.
With over 1800 patents and patent applications worldwide, innovation is in our blood. It's that pioneering spirit that keeps the ideas flowing, like our salicylate technology and our advanced SV viscosity modifiers.
And through technology excellence, we will help you meet the challenges you face today - and the ones you will face tomorrow.
