Friction Reducers

MOLYVAN® L Friction Reducer

MOLYVAN L is an oil-soluble organic molybdenum additive containing sulfur and phosphorus. It functions as friction reducer, antioxidant, antiwear, and E.P. agent. It is used in engine oils, metalworking compositions and in a variety of industrial and auto-motive lubricating oils, greases and specialties. MOLYVAN L is an outstanding antiwear agent. It is quite useful in automotive and industrial gear oils and greases which operate under heavy load conditions. Note: Since oil formulations vary it is recommended that upon the incorporation of any additive the finished product be tested to confirm original test results. In some formulations, the presence of MOLYVAN L may contribute to copper corrosion which would be detrimental to some diesel engines. Therefore, its use in such lubricants is not recommended.

VANLUBE® 289 Lubricant Additive

VANLUBE 289 is a boron-containing antiwear additive that does not contain phosphorus, sulfur, or metallic elements. It is an effective antiwear additive, by itself or in combination with other antiwear/EP additives. Falex Pin and Vee Block Test data show that VANLUBE 289 affords antiwear protection not provided by other additives such as zinc dialkyl dithiophosphate, ashless dialkyl dithiophosphate, zinc diakyl dithiocarbamate, molybdenum diakyl dithiocarbamate, ashless dialkyl dithiocarbamate, and alkyl thiadiazole. The Falex Pin and Vee Block Test data also show that VANLUBE 289 forms synergistic combinations with these additives. Thus, VANLUBE 289 is an ideal antiwear additive for the formulation of low sulfur, ash, and phosphorus (SAP) engine oils, or other lubricant applications in which these elements are restricted.
