Pour Point Depressants (PPDs) & Viscosity Index Improvers (VI improvers)
ACL offers a wide range of PMA (polymethacrylate) based pour point depressants (PPD) and viscosity index improvers (VII). The products are made for a variety of applications in the area of industrial and hydraulic lubricants as well as for motor and gear oils. Most of the pour point depressants and VI improvers are comparable to international standard products. Some products are suitable for the use in mineral oil free basefluids such as vegetable oils and others.
PAMA Additives often offer the advantage of higher shear stability with respect to Olefin Copolymers, which are also used e.g. in engine oils. Higher shear stability and significant improvement of VI are required in modern long life multi oils, where change intervals are long.
PAMA based Viscosity index improvers also show higher impact on low pourpoints compared to olefin co polymers, which is also an important feature in many hydraulic fluids and gear oils.
Kusa Products are often comparable to international standard products. For many products we can offer suitable alternatives. Shear stability, thickening and pourpoint are key features in the selection of suitable materials. Some products are suited for use in mineral oil free, vegetable based oils, for better biodegradability.
ACL wants to become a global and reliable supplier in this market segment.
