Perfad 3000 Series of Polymeric Friction Modifiers for Engine Oils
Croda is a world leading producer of organic friction modifiers and ester lubricant additives designed to help formulators and engineers control friction. Controlling friction is the key to controlling energy efficiency, reducing emissions, reducing wear and extending the durability of equipment.
Croda has developed two new polymeric organic friction modifiers which can give a significant reduction in friction, which in turn can lead to increased fuel efficiency, reduction in exhaust emissions and reduced engine wear.
To demonstrate the outstanding friction reducing properties of Perfad 3000 and Perfad 3050 we have conducted test using four matrices:
- PAO 6 + organic friction modifiers
- Group III base oil + organic and metallic friction modifiers
- Top-treated commercial passenger car engine oils
- Heavy duty diesel engine oil
Highlighted below are a couple of examples to illustrate the effectiveness of the Perfad 3000 Series:
Top-Treated Commercial Engine Oil A (Zn 959ppm, P 1229ppm, Mo 136ppm)
Top-Treated Commercial Engine Oil B (Zn 923ppm, P 1051ppm, Mo 5ppm)
Perfad 3000 and Perfad 3050 act by forming strong durable films and are active at much lower temperatures than conventional anti-wear and friction modifiers, such as ZDDP and MoDTC. As can be seen above, MTM tests conducted at 135C (initial friction and friction after a two hour MTM rubbing profile) demonstrate that Perfad 3000 and Perfad 3050 can provide extremely low coefficients of friction when added to engine oils (in the above examples, 0.5% of Perfad 3050 was added to two different 5W30 full synthetic PCMOs).
Both Perfad 3000 and Perfad 3050 have the potential to reduce engine wear by acting synergistically with ZDDP and MoDTC.
