Uses of Perfad
AutomotiveControlling friction in automotive engine oils is the key to controlling fuel efficiency, reducing emissions, reducing wear and extending the durability of equipment. Our Perfad range of polymeric organic friction modifiers (PFMs) can enable this to happen. The Perfad PFMs display an outstanding ability to reduce the coefficient of friction of engine oils to levels unachievable with conventional organic friction modifiers, thus enabling formulators to develop engine oils that improve fuel economy and reduce emissions. Perfad 3000 and Perfad 3050 also demonstrate excellent film forming properties which offers the potential to reduce engine wear and to improve engine durability.
Perfad 3100 is an oxidative and thermally stable organic friction modifier, designed specifically for use in industrial gear oils. This high performance additive provides excellent friction reducing properties to industrial gear oils formulations, which can enable more efficient power transfer and reduced running costs, whilst having minimal impact on water entrainment. Perfad 3100 forms a durable film, most notably in the mixed and boundary regime where energy losses are high. Friction reducing effects have also been observed at high temperatures, as found in heavily loaded contact areas.
Perfad XG represents the next generation of friction modifiers. As the automotive industry evolves, lubricants must too. From series hybrid vehicles, through to fully electric vehicles, friction will still remain a key issue for lubricant formulators. Perfad XG ingredients are ideal for hybrid engine lubricant formulations, especially those containing molybdedum (MoDTC). Oil performance, lifetime and durability are all positively impacted with Perfad XG friction modifiers.
