Cetane Target Improvers

Afton’s cetane improver can help meet higher cetane targets in diesel fuels, while helping refiners improve profitability, flexibility and fuel quality.

Afton Chemical's cetane improver reduces ignition delay during combustion to help improve diesel engine ignition.

Regulators and OEMs recognise that a shorter ignition delay period leads to more complete combustion and a reduction in undesirable emissions.  As a result, global fuel specifications are being set with higher cetane targets.

For the refiner, using a cetane improver can improve refinery economics, flexibility and diesel-fuel quality.
