Automotive Engine Oil Additives
Tri-iso distributes a wide range of additives that allow formulators to produce high quality automotive aftermarket products, including Fuel Additives and Engine Oil Additives.
Engine Oil Additives suitable for automotive aftermarket applications are typically a combination of antiwear additives (AW additives) and friction modifiers cut in a suitable base oil. These additives reduce the wear of engines, and improve fuel efficiency while increasing horsepower by reducing friction. Antiwear additives (AW additives) are lubricant components that chemically react with the metal surface to be protected, forming a lubricious sacrificial coating that protects the metal from wear under boundary lubrication conditions; Antiwear additives produce a surface that is harder than the unprotected base metal.
Tri-iso distributes antiwear additives based on zinc dialkyldithiophosphates (ZDDP), and ashless dialkydithiophosphates, Moly compounds, phosphoric acid, bismuth carboxylates and nano-particulate potassium borate.
