Providing lubrication and corrosion protection solutions in the most demanding applications.
Through our long manufacturing history supporting the transportation industry, we have built a strong, innovative approach to the development of high quality fuel and lubricant additives.
These additives extend the life of engines, fluids, and other key mechanical components. Products formulated with TEXALENE® Additives increase fuel efficiency, allow for reduction of emissions, and lengthen time between service.
Within the transportation industry, Vertellus manufactures fuel and lubricant package components and intermediates. Our TEXALENE line of transportation additives meet the demanding needs of today’s engines for both lubricant and fuel additives. Several key end use applications for these additives include automatic transmission fluids, heavy duty diesel fuels, premium grade gasoline, and turbine lubricants. The TEXALENE product range provides functionalities such as corrosion inhibition, friction modification, and engine oil dispersion.
Innovative high-quality fuel and lubricant additives which extend the life of engines, fluids, and other key mechanical components offer our customers advantages over the baseline technologies.
Fuel additives are designed to assist internal combustion engines to operate efficiently and effectively by keeping the internal surfaces of the engine clean, and to remove the build-up of deposits which can impair the engine’s performance. Additives not only protect the fuel system from corrosion and wear, but they also enhance the fuel quality and characteristics. Treatment of automotive fuels with performance additives provides improvements in fuel quality, power, fuel economy, and reduce the levels of harmful emissions.
Lubricant additives have a number of functions which include friction modifiers to reduce the wear of automotive parts and prolong the life of engines. Corrosion inhibitors are employed to protect the internal surface of the engine and dispersant additives are used to minimize sludge formation and neutralize acidic components. A major benefit of these lube additives is to help reduce engine service intervals.
Multifunctional & Intermediate Products
TEXALENE intermediates are key precursor products to detergents, dispersants, corrosion inhibitors, viscosity modification, friction modification, and other applications in the fuel additive, and lube additive markets.
ASA (alkenyl succinic anhydride) and PIBSA (polyisobutylene succinic anhydride) chemistry form the basis of our core competency within the transportation market. We supply much of the global transportation industry with our best-in-class manufacturing assets located in US and UK.
