VISCOMAX is shear stable ethylene — propylene polymer which is designed to be used as an engine oil additive. This product is designed to formulate multigrade gasoline and diesel engine oils meeting the most stringent specifications set by SAE. It is particularly useful to blenders located in remote areas or where climate conditions require the use of polymers with outstanding handling properties.



VISCOMAX is a unique low-viscosity emulsion based on ethylene and propylene copolymers in a carrier fluid.
