Antioxidants in Lubricants - IRGANOX®

At A Glance

Our core competency in antioxidants has set the standard for lubricant oxidative stability.

When lubricants are exposed to heat, gases or mechanical stress, the molecules can break down and form radicals which react with oxygen to cause oil thickening, deposits and acid build-up. Antioxidants eliminate these radicals and prevent thermo-oxidative breakdown.

Typical Applications

  • Engine and driveline lubricants
  • Hydraulic fluids
  • Turbine lubricants (industrial and aviation)
  • Compressor oils
  • E-Mobility fluids
  • Refrigeration lubricants
  • Marine lubricants
  • Greases 
  • Metalworking fluids
Typical applications with antioxidants
