BRB's business unit Lube oil Additives & Chemicals produces viscosity modifiers which are marketed under the brandname Viscotech®. The Viscotech® product range is available in a wide range of solid and liquid forms.
BRB LAC has become an important player in the additives market with a wide range of products and proposes a large range of viscosity modifiers with high quality performance.
Viscosity modifiers reduce the dependency of a lubricant’s viscosity to change regarding temperature variation. Two key properties of VI improvers, shear stability and thickening efficiency, have to be balanced to provide the best properties in a specific application. Depending on the final application, the proper VI improver has to be selected to ensure the best performance and improve fuel efficiency and durability.
Viscosity modifiers are used in multi-grade engine oils, gear oils, automatic transmission fluids, greases and various hydraulic fluids.
Viscotech® 6-series is an advanced family of non-dispersant olefin copolymer viscosity modifiers designed for use in formulating multi-grade engine oils and industrial lubricants.
