Additive Components
https://www.infineuminsight.com/medi...components.pdf

Additive packages for engine-oil formulations are carefully
balanced combinations of individual components, with the treat
rates determined by the demands of the lube specification.
Generally, viscosity modifiers are also required and the treat rates
are determined by the viscosity targets and base stock properties.

Typical additive types used in engine oil formulations are:
• rust Inhibitors
• oxidation inhibitors
• antiwear additives
• defoamants
• corrosion Inhibitors
• detergent and dispersants
• metal passivators
• pour point depressants
• viscosity modifiers
• friction modifiers

Gear oil
additive requirements
Finished gear lubricants are typically composed of high-quality
base stocks with between 5 and 10% additive, depending on
desired performance characteristics. These additives include:
• rust inhibitor
• oxidation inhibitor
• antiwear*
• defoamants
• corrosion passivator
• extreme pressure friction modifier*
• dispersant polymer*

*Not always required; application dependent

Common Additives between Gear and Engine
• rust inhibitor
• oxidation inhibitor
• antiwear
• defoamants
