Mannheim, August 8, 2012 – Rhein Chemie Rheinau GmbH, a wholly owned subsidiary of specialty chemicals company LANXESS, is increasing the price for its ADDITIN lubricant oil additives by an average of 8.0 percent effective August 15, 2012.

This price increase is made necessary by the stark increase in raw material costs along with strongly rising energy and logistics charges.

Under the brand name Additin, Rhein Chemie markets solutions for a wide variety of industrial lubricants, including additives for metal-working and hydraulic fluids and turbine, compressor and industrial gear oils. Customized high-performance additives and formulations in the Additin product portfolio improve high-pressure resistance, reduce mechanical wear and increase both corrosion protection and oxidation resistance – individually or as additive packages.
