Afton Industrial hydraulic oil additives are designed to meet the high performance demands and stringent environmental requirements of modern hydraulic pumps.

As hydraulic pumps continue to get smaller and the power output from them increases, meeting the performance demands on hydraulic oils and additives becomes increasingly challenging.  

The most common anti-wear compound in hydraulic oils is zinc but there has been a shift to zinc-free anti-wear technologies for certain applications and regions, often driven by performance demands and environmental factors.

Afton Chemical's R&D program is focused on developing high-performance, environmentally friendly hydraulic oil additives.
