corrosion inhibitors

Corrosion inhibitors reduce, delay, or prevent the corrosion of metal. In closed loop automotive systems, like engines, gear boxes, and transmissions corrosion inhibitor technology protects against moisture intrusion. When using Texalene™ corrosion inhibitors, water molecules and other corrosive species in the lubricant are displaced from metal surfaces in favor of our film-forming compounds.

Improve fuel efficiency and reduce friction with Texalene™ 74 series lubricity improvers.  Our 74 series helps extend maintenance intervals and engine life which reduces the environmental impact of servicing combustion engines. Texalene 74 series provides detergency activity, enabling the prevention of deposit formation.

Texalene 74 Series* Lubricity Improver 

  • organic, ashless chemistry
  • enhanced high frequency reciprocating rig (HFRR) performance at lower dosages
  • modifies friction; controls coefficient of friction (CoF)
  • neutral additive with excellent compatibility
  • product consistency and viscosity are ideal for wide variety of formulations

*select products from this series are in the commercial development process

optimize your lubricity improver with
multifunctional intermediates

Texalene multifunctional intermediates allow customers to design neutral fuel additives for unique attributes in a range of hydrocarbon fuels. Optimizing formulations with efficient and reliable intermediates for lubricity improvers has become critical, with fuel market trends increasing bio-based content and less naturally-occurring lubricity. Our range of Texalene intermediates enable formulators to innovate by restoring lubricity and inhibiting corrosion in fuel systems.

Texalene intermediates are supplied in formulations, allowing for easier handling. They act as water scavengers, helping to extend shelf life.  

optimize your formulation

Film permeability and drug release rate is highest with low molecular weight citrates used at high concentrations. Higher molecular weight citrates used at low concentrations provide lower permeability and slow drug release. Both hydrophilic an lipophilic esters are available, allowing the formulator to control the film and drug release characteristics of a variety of polymer coatings to suit the needs of finished product.
