Boosting Fuel Economy, Reducing Emissions
Reducing friction through more efficient lubrication is a key factor in helping to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Petrico’s extensive range of Viscosity Modifiers and Friction Modifiers includes an organic product designed to reduce resistance and wear in machine components and achieve sustained performance durability.
Additin® RC 3502 from Lanxess is an organic additive for passenger car and high-performance engine oils, specifically developed to reduce friction and deliver sustained performance and anti-wear protection. It demonstrates up to 5% Fuel Economy improvement and retention, is fully compatible with Group I-V based engine oils, non-corrosive, compatible with all synthetic and mineral engine oils, and has zero SAPS (sulphated ash, phosphorous, sulphur).
“We strive to ensure that our portfolio of world class products is always in-tune with the needs of our customers ,” explains Andrew Lamb, Managing Director, Petrico. “Adding latest technology Friction Modifiers from Lanxess reflects a growing global demand for lubricants that increase fuel economy benefits and reduce emissions, without compromising on efficiency.”
In addition, Additin RC 3502 provides a bonus of boosting additive-additive interactions directly at the frictional surfaces where surface-active anti-wear additives, detergents and molybdenum dithiocarbamates work. This property, combined with an excellent friction reduction capability and durability, translates in engine dynamometer testing (ASTM D8114) to the friction reduction required for fuel economy gains in ILSAC GF-5+ and GF-6, new industry specifications with even higher demands on fuel economy.
