IPAC can supply you with a wide range of Viscosity Index
Improvers (VIIs), whether you are interested in liquids or
solids. Our carefully selected polymers, added to a lubricant
to improve the range of effective viscosity, are designed
specifically for the lubricants market, unlike many polymers
sold as VIIs into the market today. They effectively thicken the
oil as temperature increases. This means that the lubricating
effect of mineral oils can be extended across a wider
temperature range. A balance between thickening efficiency
and shear stability is important when selecting a polymer for
use as a viscosity improver. IPAC VIIs give you the highest
possible degree of thermal and oxidative stability when added
