About Oil Additives at Evonik

The Oil Additives team at Evonik has taken a leadership role in developing lubricant additive technology designed to improve fuel efficiency and productivity. Energy-saving results have been demonstrated with VISCOPLEX® Viscosity Index Improvers (VIIs) in engine oils, driveline fluids and gear oils. Industrial and off-highway equipment field tests have also recorded up to double-digit improvements in fuel savings with DYNAVIS® technology for hydraulic fluids, reducing operating costs as well as CO2 emissions. Evonik’s VISCOBASE® products 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. In all of its many applications, the Oil Additives team at Evonik strives for Resource Efficiency.
