Viscosity Index Improver;Viscosity Index Modifer

Ganesh Benzoplast limited manufacturer and exporter of wide range of Viscosity Index Improver (GL 3015) that is a non-dispersant olefin co-polymer viscosity modifier. Being precision engineered, our viscosity improver is ideal for providing low-temperature performance while maintaining excellent film strength and engine test performance.This oil concentrate of an olefinic copolymer is a viscosity index improver for crankcase lubricants especially where excellent shear stability is demanded.

Characteristics of Ganesh Benzoplast’s Viscosity Index Improver (GL 3015):

  • There is possibility of some loss in viscosity and in viscosity index because of the shear forces encountered in engine operation
  • It applies to all viscosity index improver
  • In this respect, our range performs excellently as evidenced by an average viscosity loss of 14 % at 100° C for SAE 15W-50 crankcase oils in over the road service
