All Lubricity Products Are Not Created Equal so Infineum has developed a wide range of Lubricity additives in its portfolio.

Lubricity additives are used in diesel fuel to reduce wear on engine components, particularly the fuel pump, to prevent break-down of the engine. With the advent of Ultra-Low Sulphur Diesel, lubricity additives became a requirement in most fuels to meet the ASTM D975 specifications for diesel.

There are two primary chemistry solutions for lubricity improvers – neutral or acidic:

  • Ester neutral chemistry expertise with demonstrated performance over 20+ years, universally accepted by the world’s largest refiners and ideal products for tailored combination packages.
  • Monoacid lubricity with a range of products carefully selected to meet widening needs on handling, multi-product pipeline, cost and fuel performance.
Infineum Ester Range:
  • Well established flag ship products universally accepted for export regardless of the source refinery
  • Deeper HFRR response than a monoacid providing confidence in the ability to treat intermittently severe fuels
  • Is designed to meet internal specifications/quality performance
  • Formulated to meet the most severe cold temperature handling conditions
  • Where required products have Multi Product Pipeline Approval allowing co-transportation of jet fuel
  • Combination packages available 
  • Exceptional harms-free performance
Infineum Monoacid Range:
  • Infineum Monoacids offer both an economical and practical approach to meeting lubricity specifications
  • We offer Products formulated for improved low-temperature handling whilst delivering optimized fuel treatment
  • Products that minimize the need for heated storage
  • Where required products have Multi Product Pipeline Approval allowing co-transportation of jet fuel

Diesel fuel lubricity additives have been used successfully in the field for over 20 years. However, changes at the refinery and to vehicle hardware mean that understanding their performance in the latest fuels is essential.

Lubricity response in a large number of fuels confirm Ester and Monoacid Lubricity products behave differently.
