HiTEC® 151

Tackiness additive

Key Performance Benefits

  • Improved lubricant retention helping to maintain lubricant film during machinery shut-down periods
  • Improved film thickness ensuring hydrodynamic lubrication over a wide range of conditions as well as better corrosion protection
  • Improved surface adhesion preventing lubricant loss from moving machinery with consequent reduction in environmental contamination


HiTEC® 151 additive is a combination of a high molecular weight polymer in a selected mineral oil. It contributes significantly to lubricant retention, film thickness and surface adhesion.

HiTEC® 151 additive may be usefully incorporated in a wide variety of lubricating oils, such as lubricants for chain saws, chains, open gears, rock drills, slideways, metal working, wire ropes and textile machinery. Further applications are seen in greases, paints, sealants and mastics, preservative oils and other areas where good surface adhesion is important.

Recommended Dosage

Dosages for HiTEC® 151 additive will vary from 0.5% to 2.0% wt., but higher dosages of up to 10% may be appropriate in some speciality applications. Please contact your Afton Chemical representative for specific recommendations.
