Tackiness additives increase the adhesive properties of a lubricant, preventing dripping and splashing during operation. This reduces operational cost and the risk of environmental contamination.
Afton’s tackiness additives are a combination of high molecular weight polymers in selected mineral oils. By contributing significantly to lubricant retention, film thickness and surface adhesion, these additives help ensure hydrodynamic lubrication over a wide range of conditions and add an element of corrosion protection.
Afton’s customers use our tackiness additive technology in a wide variety of applications, including lubricating oils for chainsaws, chains, open gears, rock drills, slideways, metalworking, wire ropes and textile machinery.
