Engine Oil Additives

Extend the Life of Your Engine

As engines get smaller, more complex, and drive towards higher mileage capabilities, the requirements for the engine oil have become equally demanding. Afton Chemical offers a variety of specialized multifunctional additives and performance components for formulating engine oil and aftermarket oil additives. Spanning from economic and mainstream engine oil additives to highly specialized and premium tier engine oil additives, Afton Chemical's HiTEC® line has an option suited for your particular formulation needs.

Why Use Afton HiTEC® Performance Oil Additives? 

  • Reduce emissions, improve fuel economy and engine performance, and extend engine life
  • Afton’s specialty oil additives provide approvals for a wide range of base stocks with flexibility of the viscosity modifier selection
  • Afton Chemical has conducted extensive field testing with 17 million miles on-highway and more than 23,000 hours off-highway
  • Afton is a market leader in the development of engine oil additives that meet ILSAC G-5/API SN PCMO and GM dexos1TM  specifications.

Passenger Car Motor Oil (PCMO) Additives

Afton passenger car motor oil (PCMO) additives are multifunctional performance oil additives to help reduce emissions, increase fuel economy, and improve engine life and performance in light duty vehicles. The Afton HiTEC®  passenger car motor oil additives meet the latest industry and OEM specifications and are backed by millions of miles of field trial data. Additionally, Afton offers wide base oil and viscosity grade coverage, and can assist you in formulating and meeting motor oil OEM approvals. A few of the core HiTEC® PCMO additives are highlighted below. View All Afton PCMO Additives ►

Heavy-Duty Engine Oil (HDEO) Additives

Afton heavy-duty engine oil (HDEO) additives are multifunctional performance additives designed to meet the rigorous lubricant needs of the heavy duty trucking, mining and construction industry. The Afton HiTEC® HDEO additives are cost-effective, provide superior performance, and can be formulated in a range of viscosity grades and heavy-duty engine oil products. Afton Chemical's core HDEO additive package, HiTEC® 12210, is highlighted below. View All Afton HDEO Additives ► 

Viscosity Index Improvers (VII)

Viscosity index improvers (VII) are critical in formulating multi-grade oils in order to maintain the desired protection and lubricant performance over a broad temperature range. The HiTEC® viscosity index improvers help protect against engine wear, reduce overall oil consumption, and reduce smoke and emissions. Learn More ►

The HiTEC® Viscosity Improvers also provide:
  • Cost-effective thickening
  • Robust low-temperature performance
  • Multiple shear stability index options for formulation flexibility

Seal Swell Agents 

With so much chemical variety in base oil and additive packages, it’s important to keep elastomer compatibility in mind to prevent seal damage or leakage. These HiTEC® lubricant additives provide solutions for preventing oil leaks and provide:

  • Strong seal swell activity
  • Broad range of base oil solubility (Group I, II, III and IV)
  • Ashless, metal-free, and chlorine-free chemistry

Friction Modifiers

Modifying friction is an integral part of engine oil additive technologies. In order to properly lubricate a surface, it is important to reduce the coefficient of friction without sacrificing the protective properties of the fluid. HiTEC® 7133 provides a solution for this problem by imparting great wear protection, and preventing damage to mating surfaces.

  • Helps improve fuel economy by reducing friction
  • Helps maximize acceleration and horsepower
  • Prevents damage and wear, and extends engine life

Detergents & Total Base Number (TBN) Boost

Keeping an engine lubricant clean is a difficult task. High temperatures and combustion create a non-stop battle to control sludge build-up and keep metal surfaces clean. HiTEC® 611 is a powerful detergent technology to prevent and remove sludge and deposit formation to keep engine parts clean. HiTEC® 611 also provides:

  • Excellent filterability
  • Rust and corrosion protection
  • Excellent phenate compatibility

Anti-Wear Additives 

Combustion engines have significant metal-to-metal contact and require very specific protection regimes to prevent damage and failure. There are a range of anti-wear additive technologies that help protect gears and gearboxes. HITEC® 7169 is a zinc dialkyl dithiophosphate (ZDDP) additive that provides:

  • Superior wear and bearing corrosion control
  • Good antioxidant performance
  • Extends Engine Oil Life
  • Very high thermal stability
