Additives – Fuels and lubricants  

In gasoline and diesel fuels, ExxonMobil Chemical fluids carry the active ingredients of additive formulations to meet fuel specifications and enhance performance. These fluids also serve as carriers for chemical packages used in refining processes, such as foamers, demulsifiers, and corrosion and fouling inhibitors.

In lubricant additive applications, aromatic fluids can be used as both carriers and chemical intermediates that form part of the end product. In every application, formulators can count on the availability, quality and consistency to ensure a stable formulation process.
