Lubrizol launches a new heavy-duty additive

Lubrizol, a leader in additive technology for the transportation industry, has launched Lubrizol® CV9660, a new low-SAPS Heavy-Duty lubricant additive.

Lubrizol® CV9660 has been formulated to address the growing demands for ACEA E8 lubricants in the European market. The new additive has base oil flexibility, meaning it can be used with different groups of base oils. It also uses Lubrizol® 7077, a widely available performance polymer. The additive is also notable for covering multiple viscosity grades in heavy-duty space to meet various needs, boost efficiency, and deliver added value. 

“Low-SAPS, Heavy Duty lubricants pose a challenge to our customers,” said Alex Brewster, Lubrizol Heavy Duty Product Manager, Europe. “Viscosity grades, base oils, and additive packages all create complexity within the oil marketers’ operations and within the product range itself. In addressing this challenge, we are pleased to have developed a solution with exponential benefits.”

Lubrizol® CV9660 joins a suite of products supporting the diverse needs of the heavy-duty market and bolsters Lubrizol’s reputation in the industry as a total solutions provider. This product is launched as the European lubricant market upgrades to higher-performance lubricants to meet the demands of the existing Euro VI legislation and enable cleaner powertrain technology.
