ADDITIN® AW

Lanxess

Additin® Antiwear (AW) additives are widely used in metal-working fluids, greases, hydraulics and a variety of other in-dustrial applications. The advantages of phosphorus additives are especially effective in medium-to low-stress boundary lubrication situations.
Phosphorus-based products in the Additin® AW range offer a flexible chemistry for a wide variety of solutions.
- Thermal and hydrolytic stability through phosphoric acid esters
- Multifunctional effect through dithiophosphates
- Extremely high AW performance at a low dosage through amine-neutralized phosphoric acid esters
- Excellent thermal stability due to carbamates

Additin RC 3212
Additin RC 3212 is a very special low phosphorus / low zinc type ZnDTP with unconvential properties. Unlike standard type ZnDTP´s Additin RC 3212 contributes to low friction, improved lubricity and anti-rust performance.
Additin RC 3212 even outperforms standard type ZnDTP´s based on C3- to C8-alcohols in their EP/AW characterictics. Because of these outstanding perfomance details Additin RC 3212 is particularily suitable for the use in metal working fluids where high lubricity/low friction is required (e.g. forming oils etc.).
Additionally Additin RC 3212 may contribute to reduce the zinc and phosphorus content in ZnDTP-containing lubricants without sacrificing the wellknown ” all-round” properties of ZnDTP´s.
