Viscosity grade improvers are polymers that are mixed with base oil to regulate the change of viscosity in the oil with the change in temperature. Shear stability and thickening capability are the most important parameters of a lubricant viscosity grade improver. They are made up of polymers such as olefin copolymers (OCPs), polymethacrylates (PMAs), and styrene block polymers.
Viscosity grade improvers are used in PCMOs to provide high fuel efficiency, reduce emissions, frictions, reduce the chances of damage and wear, and influence the effective functioning of the lubricant used in the engine. The growth in sales of passenger cars and the introduction of new taxation rates and subsidies, will contribute to the growth of the viscosity index improvers market in this end user segment.
End-users can use engines lubricated with multigrade oils at a wide range of temperatures and for an extended period of time. Multigrade oils display the properties of two viscosity grades as they contain a mixture of viscosity grade improvers mixed in low viscosity oil.
