Offering vegetable and petroleum-based lubricant additives

Arkema has a variety of lubricant additives already developed from vegetable-based oils that are renewable, sustainable, and readily available, which have demonstrated they are equally efficient.

Our team of experts and laboratory facilities can identify the right products that can act as acid scavengers or friction modifiers that are synergistic with anit-wear agents and extreme pressure agents.

Specialty epoxides offering technical solutions

Arkema’s chemistry represents a significant change to bio-based lubricants in that we offer both vegetable and petroleum-based products. Vegetable–based oils can be economic alternatives to petroleum-based materials, with high durability and a high viscosity index, while petroleum-based products can offer better performance depending on the application. Many times vegetable and petroleum-based additives can be manipulated to meet today’s lubrication requirements.
