Synthetic polyol esters are an essential ingredient of many high performance fully synthetic engine oils that allow prolonged oil change intervals and considerable fuel economy (up to 5% for heavy duty diesel engines). This because of their outstandig lubricating performance, excellent oxidation stability and superb elastomer compatibility. By tuning our esters using different alcohols and fatty acids, Oleon has a complete line of suitable (co-) base oils for every SAE J 300 viscosity grade.

Today, with the increase in performance demanded from additive packages and in order to formulate engine oils in compliance with the latest industry standards, high performing formulations are required. Esters like our Radialube 7368 are used to increase additive solubility in non-polar mineral base stocks. Besides this Radialube 7368 also reverses the negative effect PAO’s have on elastomers in engine oil formulations.

Because complete combustion of the oils is desired in 2T engines, preferably without generating too much smoke, ash or soot, 2T oils are totally different from lubricants for 4T engines. More and more two-stroke engine oils are formulated using fatty esters as a base oil, especially for chain saw lubricants, snow scooters and outboard engine oils.

The outstanding lubrication and the non-polluting character of ester based base oils make them very suitable “green” oils for very demanding applications like racing oils. Oleon has developed a high performance, biodegradable two-stroke base oil, called Radialube 7819. Radialube 7819 is tested in a premium synthetic low ash two-stroke formulation tailored for use in 2T applications involving high engine temperatures, high engine speed, and high torque. The finished formulations exceed the following industry performance standards:

  • Radialube 8241 and 8242: chainsaw lubricants compliant with RAL-UZ 48
  • Radialube 8245: two cycles air cooled engine lubricant compliant with JASO-FD / ISO-L-EGD

For a four-stroke engine good lubrication performance and excellent oxidation stability are increasingly important, as the time and mileage between oil changes increases. Oleon offers a complete range of suitable base oils that can help you achieve those challenges. 

Friction Modifiers. Thanks to our extensive work on the molecular design of esters, Oleon has developed a range of friction modifiers for engine and gear oil applications. Lubrication systems show the importance of a friction modifier to reduce friction and wear. An adhesive hydrogen bonding between the FM and the polar and/or hydroxylated metal surface form the principle for modifying friction. Oleon considers the development of a next generation FM as a top priority to find appropriate replacements for the existing FM chemistry of today.

The use of organic friction modifiers is becoming more important due to the changing requirements concerning exhaust gas emissions and hence the exhaust gas absorption systems. Besides reducing friction and hence improving fuel economy, a high oxidation resistance is demanded. The standard organic friction modifiers used in the market today do not live up to the ever increasing drain intervals.
