Evonik aims high for gearbox durability at this year’s AWEA WINDPOWER Expo

Horsham, USA - May 14, 2015

The lubricant specialists at Evonik will be at AWEA WINDPOWER Expo Stand #2025 from May 18-21, 2015. Stop by, and learn how Evonik addresses wind turbine gear oil equipment challenges with Formulation 8175, a synthetic wind turbine gear oil.

“Evonik’s Formulation 8175 addresses many needs in the wind turbine
market including durability, energy efficiency and extended service life.
One essential element in the formulation is VISCOBASE®, which provides
necessary film strength for gear protection under extreme loads,” shares
Aidan Rose, Evonik’s Global Business Director of Industrial and Gear oils.

For a lively technical presentation and discussion, attendees should stop
by Stand #2538 to listen to David Gray, Regional OEM Liaison Manager
for Oil Additives at Evonik. Gray’s presentation, entitled “NUFLUX™
technology - An economic way to ensure gearbox longevity” is scheduled
for Tuesday, May 19 at 3PM.

Visitors of Evonik’s stand will have the opportunity to enter a raffle for a
chance to win a “Drone quadcopter with a built-in camera.”

Evonik develops additive technologies to improve fuel and energy
efficiency as well as productivity with DRIVON™ and NUFLUX™
technologies in engine oils, driveline fluids and gear oils. Industrial and
off-highway equipment achieve fuel and energy savings with DYNAVIS®
technology for hydraulic fluids. In carefully designed and monitored field
tests, hydraulic fluids formulated with DYNAVIS® technology have
achieved up to double-digit percentage improvements in fuel savings,
reducing operating costs as well as CO2 emissions. In all of its many
applications, the Oil Additives team at Evonik strives for Resource
Efficiency.

Evonik‘s Oil Additives business creates high-performance additives for
lubricants, fuels and refinery products with an intellectual intensity and
passion they refer to as „Let it flow.“ The three-word phrase also serves
as the Oil Additives Team’s value proposition to customers, reinforcing
its key customer benefits: boosting efficiency, gaining an edge, and
future-proofing business to meet upcoming challenges.

Energy-saving results have been demonstrated with Evonik’s VISCOPLEX®
Viscosity Index Improvers (VIIs) in all three Evonik oil additive
technologies. In addition, VISCOPLEX® Pour Point Depressants (PPDs)
extend the range of high-performance lubrication to low-temperatures,
for example, ensuring adequate oil pumpability for engines in a cold
start. And Evonik’s VISCOBASE® synthetic base oils offer an ideal balance
between a very shear-stable VII and a synthetic base fluid, providing
excellent solvency in automotive gear oil formulations such as heavy
duty axle oils and manual transmission fluids.

The Oil Additives business line of Evonik Industries also specializes in
high-performance additives and technologies for fuels and refinery
products. Evonik’s VISCOPLEX® Cold Flow Improvers (CFIs) provide
outstanding flow properties for biofuels in any region or season.
VISCOPLEX® dewaxing aids (DWAs) are designed to improve the
efficiency of base oil refinery processes for differing viscosity grades,
especially bright stocks.
