Rhein Chemie, the additive specialist for industrial lubricants, is extending its product portfolio. Many of today’s lubricants are required to fulfill extreme thermal demands for several application fields. As a result, all additives needed to be in line with such requirements. The new ADDITIN RC 63-seriesof Rhein Chemie is offering solutions to such lubrication challenges for metalworking fluids, greases, industrial oils and gear oils. The highly effective product range consists of three multifucntional additives:

The new ADDITIN RC 63-series of Additins provides excellent wear protection, good oxidation protection and high load-carrying capacity.

As a result of their high thermal stability (above 300 °C), they are capable of meeting the increasingly severe requirements placed on high-performance lubricants. The Additin RC 63xx series consists of three multifunctional additives.

ADDITIN RC 6301: Zinc dithiocarbamate, particularly suitable for formulating gear oils, compressor oils, greases and metalworking fluids. Acts as a non-ferrous metal deactivator

ADDITIN RC 6320: Antimony dithiocarbamate, ideally suited for use in greases. Excellent EP performance, very high Timken values in lubricating grease. Multifunctional, “high-grade” additive, meaning that further additives often do not need to be added to the grease

ADDITIN RC 6340: Ashless dithiocarbamate, an excellent component for formulating hydraulic oils, gear oils, compressor oils, turbine oils, high-temperature chain oils, greases and metalworking fluids.

Due to their high thermal stability the three carbamates are capable of meeting the increasingly severe requirements in the relevant application fields and are therefore a very beneficial addition to Rhein Chemie’s product portfolio.
