Friction Reducers

MOLYVAN® A Friction Reducer

Used in long life chassis greases for ball joints, steering linkages and other lubricating greases requiring good antioxidant and antiwear at high temperatures for long periods of time. MOLYVAN A is an organic molybdenum E.P. and antiwear additive for petroleum and synthetic lubricants. It has good high temperature stability. In lubricating greases it is superior to inorganic molybdenum additives in both antiwear and antioxidant properties. MOLYVAN A is slightly basic and does not promote rusting. It has a low specific gravity which makes it easy to disperse with simple equipment. It is used in non-petroleum base valve lubricants.

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.

MOLYVAN® 807 Friction Reducer

MOLYVAN 807 offers a unique molybdenum-sulfur combination in an oil-soluble form which is easy to blend into lubricants.

MOLYVAN® 855 Friction Reducer

MOLYVAN 855 is a liquid organo-molybdenum antioxidant and friction modifier specifically designed for crankcase oils. MOLYVAN 855 will provide engine oils with a substantial reduction of coefficient of friction. Not recommended, at this time, for diesel engine oils.   USDA CERTIFIED BIOBASED PRODUCT 77%.

VANLUBE® 622 Lubricant Additive

Antiwear and EP additive for steel mill and other industrial gear oils. Antiwear and extreme pressure additive for petroleum oils and greases. VANLUBE 622 has outstanding extreme pressure and antiwear properties in a variety of base lubricants. It will give unusually high Timken, Falex, and 4-Ball EP values at economical concentrations of 1 to 3%. It shows promise as an EP and antiwear additive in automotive gear oils. Radioactive Ring Wear Tests in crankcase oils show VANLUBE 622 to be superior to zinc dithiophosphates at equivalent treating costs. Friction reducer in engine oils and gear oils.

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.
