Advanced chemistry that
gives formulations a competitive edge

Boosting efficiency in premium lubricants, Evonik’s VISCOPLEX®, and VISCOBASE® product portfolios are built around the unique benefits of polyalkyl methacrylate (PAMA) chemistry. 

VISCOPLEX® series 0, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 10, 12

Polymers that contribute to higher viscosity at high temperatures and offer minimal viscosity contribution at lower temperatures; used to formulate multigrade engine oils, transmission fluids, hydraulic fluids, gear oils, and other industrial lubricants.

VISCOPLEX® series 1, 10

Polymers that are designed to control wax crystal formation in oils, resulting in excellent low-temperature flow performance; effective in a wide range of formulations including engine oils, transmission fluids, hydraulic fluids, gear oils and other industrial lubricants.

VISCOPLEX® series 9

Polymers that improve the filtration rate of raffinates in solvent dewaxing units, increase oil yield, and reduce the oil in wax content.

VISCOPLEX® series 10

Polymers designed to enhance the cold-weather performance of fuels and fuel additive packages. The cold flow properties of biofuels (i.e. biodiesel) are improved by controlled wax crystal formation.

VISCOPLEX® series 14

Polymers that are engineered to modify wax crystallization in the crude oils, resulting in lower viscosity and reduction of wax deposition.

VISCOBASE® series 11

Base stocks that are designed for the formulation of high-performance, semi- and all-synthetic engine oils, gear oils and hydraulic fluids.

VISCOPLEX® defoamer additives

VISCOPLEX® defoamers provide robust performance across a wide range of lubricant formulations.


Evonik also offers a range of additives for specialty applications.
