Additives for the Lubricant Industry

Today’s high requirement of lubricants cannot simply be met by basic materials such as oils and greases. Therefore, additives are valuable key components for the lubricant industry. Due to these highly effective additives, the production, lifespan, storage, thermal stability, as well as the performance and lubricant ability of lubricant formulation is greatly benefited. Through this, it is made possible that basic fluids can be used to their full potential, and thus, highly efficient transmission fluid, hydraulic oils, engine oils, compressor oils, high temperature lubricants, turbine oils, chain oils, metal working fluids, as well as greases can be produced. To obtain the full effectiveness of the lubricant additives, Schäfer Additivsysteme customizes chemical additions to be optimized for specific uses. Our product portfolio encompasses various classes of lubricant additives for oil- and water based usage:

  • Hydrolysis Stabilizer as protection from aging due to humidity
  • Antioxidants as protection from oxidation (radical formation) and to increase thermal stability
  • UV stabilizers to reduce the harmful impacts of light (UV radiation)
  • Metal deactivators for passivation of coloured metals such as copper for example
  • EP/AW-Additives as wear protection to reduce friction and friction resistance
  • Corrosion inhibitors to minimize rust formation and prevent oxidation of metal surfaces
  • Defoamers to oppress foam formation and aeration
  • Tackifiers to improve the adhesion properties of lubricants on surfaces

Many of our additives are FDA listed (Food and Drug Administration, USA) and are therefore suitable to use in the production of lubricants and greases that come in contact with food products or in the machinery and manufacturing facilities that process foods. Along with these additives, Schäfer Additivsysteme GmbH also offers complex additive systems including acid scavengers (anti-aging additives), basic fluids based on esters, as well as high molecular hydrocarbons such as transmission and hydraulic oil packages.


 By using LUBIO® Additives, you are able to improve the performance and sustainability of your products.
