Functional PD-630 is a pour point depressant (PPD) engineered for exceptional performance in Group III oils. Each API oil Group (I, II, III) contains characteristic distributions of waxes that form gel at low temperature (-10 to -20C) and worsen the pour point of oil. PPDs interfere with the formation of this waxy gel and can extend the pour point to temperatures below -40C. The extreme hydrocracking used to produce Group III oils creates residual wax species unlike those in Group I or II oils.
It is best practice to choose a PPD that is best formulated to a particular base oil for maximum pour point reduction and lowest cost per treat. A Group III PPD is recommended when working with any formulation in Group III base oil. Group III PPDs also show good improvement in formulations with high VI improver content.
Functional V-802, tackifier and thickener for water-based systems, has been approved by the U.S. NSF as an additive for food grade lubricants with indirect contact (HX-1 and HX-2 categories). This registration is compliant with FDA 21 CFR §178.3570.
Functional HF-590 additive package for bio-based hydraulic fluids and SGP-571 saw guide product for bio-based and conventional oil have been approved for the European Eco-Label’s Lubricant Substance Classification List (LuSC). These products are developed for maximum performance and minimal environmental impact. LuSC approval also grants Vessel General Permit (VGP) status.

Functional Products’s new biodegradable two-cycle engine oil is intended for air-cooled two-cycle engines. This oil is inherently biodegradable and compatible with gasolines containing up to 10% ethanol. The oil outperformed a JASO FD-rated synthetic blend on Piston Merit Rating.
Functional V-385 is a shear stable OCP-based tackifier in Group III oil for shear-sensitive high temperature lubricants. This product will contribute modest levels of tack and viscosity. The polymer is PSSI 50 and contributes to anti-misting.
Functional CI-427 is a light-colored anti-wear and corrosion inhibitor for food-grade use. This additive will produce less color in finished products and allows for brighter and clearer food-grade lubricants. It is NSF-approved HX-1 and HX-2 under Registry #154971.
Functional V-380 has been developed as a high temperature tackifier using a new technology developed for polyisobutylene products. Functional V-380 has greatly reduced tack loss during prolonged high-temperature (150-200˚C) operation and is formulated in a thermally stable mineral oil. Functional V-380 is compatible with Group II and OCP-based additives.
