LSI Forms Company Focused On Additives Nanotechnology

Aug. 21, 2020
LSI Chemical will focus on international sales and distribution of additive nanotechnology via product development, acquisition and partnerships.

Lubrication Specialties Inc. (LSI) announces the formation of LSI Chemical. LSI Chemical will focus on additive nanotechnology and development of innovative base oils through product development, partnerships and acquisition opportunities.

LSI Chemical products will incorporate the company’s nanotechnology, colorless nanoparticles, patented additives and surface treatment processes and Group V Esters/Group IV PAO to ensure there are no solubility issues, according to the company. The market focus will be additives and base oils for racing, engine, marine and industrial oils. For the diesel additive market, the focus will be on products for large trucking fleets, marine, mines and fuel jobbers around the world.

LSI Chemicals products will reportedly be formulated from Group V Esters with friction modifiers and base oils. LSI says it has solved one of the largest issues with nanoparticles – keeping them suspended over time to ensure performance and product appearance. Without this longtime suspension of nanoparticles (carbon, tungsten oxide, molybdenum disulfide), additives for many industries have experienced solubility issues.
