Presentation summary:

Calcium sulfonate thickener systems have become increasingly popular due to recent market dynamics such as availability, pricing, and labeling concerns of lithium-based soaps. While calcium sulfonate thickener systems offer enhanced performance, ingredients and recipes for making this class of thickener are varied, and finding the optimal solution for a given application can be very complicated. 

This study used various promoters to create greases from 300 TBN overbased calcium sulfonate detergent. The impact on finished grease performance was evaluated using a variety of different bench tests.

We look forward to connecting with you during the event!
