Polybutene is widely used in lubricant for modifying / improving the viscosity of the lubricant formulation to the desired final viscosity.

Polybutenes are widely used in applications where there is a plenty of chances for incidental contact of the lubricant with food such as production of aluminium foils and cans.

KVIS polybutenes are inherently good lubricants and its unique physical properties make them a perfect choice for wide variety of lubrication requirements.

The wide range of viscosities of the KVIS polybutenes offer the operational comfort to the lubricant formulators i.e the formulators would have a considerable scope to devise and optimize the formulations of the lubricants.

The typical advantage of KVIS polybutenes over other polybutenes is property of very low deposit formation. When heated above 250 C they will depolymerise.

The notable characteristics of KVIS PIB are very low toxicity and good thickening capacity.
KVIS polybutenes exhibit excellent shear stability.

KVIS polybutenes are widely used in Non staining metal working fluids, High temperature / specialty lubricants, high viscous / energy efficient gear oils and greases.

     Oil & Fuel Additives

KVIS Polybutenes are used in manufacture of PIBSA, a widely used dispersant in lubricant industry.

PIBSA is used as ashless dispersant in the lubricant formulations to control deposits, sludge formation and to prevent oil thickening.

PIBSA based dispersant can help in improving the fuel economy. They also offer environmental benefits by decreasing the frequency of oil drains.

Polybutene based fuel / gasoline additives helps in reducing the deposits. They also remove the deposits already present in the automotive components like carburetors, fuel injectors and intake system, and on valves and pistons.

Polybutene based additives in diesel can help to maintain cleanliness of the fuel injectors, again leading to fuel economy.

     Two Stroke Engine Oil

KVIS polybutenes became an inseparable component of the Indian two stroke engine oil industry. Almost three of the four two stroke engine powered automobile/ industrial engine in India have KVIS polybutenes.

Polybutene offers a cost effective way to achieve low smoke performance in two-stroke engines.

It also offers a wide variety of other advantages including clean burning, reduced corrosion and scoring, and the elimination of engine deposits.

KVIS polybutenes offer enhanced performance compared to most other polybutenes by virtue of their particular molecular structure.

Most of the major players in automotive lubricants worldwide like BP Castrol, Shell, Elf Auto, BPCL, HPCL, IOCL, Lubrizol, Infineum, EXXON rely mostly on KVIS polybutenes because of the consistency in quality.
