Huntsman Performance Products is a major supplier of chemicals to the world’s principal lubricant manufacturers.  Lubricants play a critical role in engines and industrial equipment, minimizing friction between moving parts, reducing excess heat, and enhancing resistance to oxidization and corrosion.

Metalworking

Learn more about our range of lubricant additives used in metalworking. 

Used to make additives for motor oils and hydraulic fluids, our amines and maleic anhydride boost performance by providing alkalinity, static and dust control, emulsification, corrosion inhibition, and dispersion.

Gasoline Efficiency

Huntsman polyetheramines are critical components in many gasoline detergent packages to keep engines cleaner. They are used to prevent and clean deposits in fuel injectors, intake valves and combustion chambers. Huntsman ethylene amines and maleic anhydride are building blocks in making polyisobytylene succinimides (PIBSI), key components in detergent formulations for gasoline and diesel engines.

Cleaner Emissions Lubricant additives empower mechanical performance and increase fuel efficiency. Huntsman’s expertise in amine chemistry facilitates our customers’ capacity to meet stringent OEM requirements and regulatory compliance.


Our ethylene amines, maleic anhydride and ethylene carbonates are key building blocks for dispersants that suspend contaminants in oil, such as soot, to prevent coagulation.

Huntsman’s R&D teams continually innovate to develop better fuel and lubricant components for every type of engine, delivering solutions that drive performance and fuel efficiency for today’s fast-paced world.
