By controlling the coefficient of friction (CoF), friction modifiers smooth the transition from static to kinetic condition of moving parts, such as gears. Friction modifiers provide boundary layer protection, preventing direct contact between the metal surfaces. Advances in engine oil technology have resulted in lower viscosity at operating temperatures. While these changes have improved fuel economy, they have created the need for compounds that adhere to pistons and cylinders to prevent metal-on-metal contact. Texalene neutral additives offer organic, ashless chemistry with a history of use in a wide variety of formulations.

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.
