Organic friction modifiers boost fuel economy and reduce emissions
28 May 2020
Reducing friction through more efficient lubrication is a key factor in helping to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. The Pemco Additives range includes an organic Friction Modifier, designed to reduce resistance and wear in machine components and achieve sustained performance durability.
“Pemco Additives’ comprehensive product range includes latest technology friction modifiers from Lanxess,” explains Anders Malmström, Sales Manager, Pemco Additives AB. ”We recognise the growing global demand to increase fuel economy benefits and reduce emissions, without compromising on efficiency.”
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).
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.
“The new Additin RC 3502 is a durable organic friction modifier developed for today’s extended drain, high mileage applications, typically up to 20,000 miles, with exceptional solubility in the full range of commercially available passenger car and high-performance engine oils,” confirms Dr Frank DeBlase, Application Technology Manager in the Lubricant Additives business unit of Lanxess.
