Due to explosive growth in sales in multiple markets of LSI’s performance additives and oils and custom lubricant solutions for industrial clients, Lubrication Specialties Inc. (LSI) announced the formation of LSI Chemical.
“The mission for LSI Chemical is to become the premier international oil- and fuel-additive leader focused on Nano additive technology and development of innovative base oils through product development, partnerships and acquisition opportunities,” the company said in a news release.
New products planned by LSI Chemical will incorporate the company’s true Nano technology, colorless Nano particles, patented additives and surface treatment processes and Group V Esters/Group IV PAO to ensure no solubility issues and superior performance, according to the company.
LSI Chemical products soon will be introduced for a variety of industries and markets. 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.
“With over 25 years’ experience in this highly technical industry, it is exciting to work for a company that is at the forefront of developing leading edge processes that will revolutionize how Nano technology is used in the fuel and oil additive industries,” LSI Chemical President Todd Cawley said. “Our research and development is not cutting-edge, but I would venture to say ‘bleeding-edge.’ Our additives will soon be a game-changer that will improve products for many different industries and markets in the USA and around the world.”
LSI Chemical’s soon-to-be-introduced additives “will be unlike any currently on the market,” according to the company. Formulated from Group V esters with friction modifiers and base oils, LSI has solved one of the largest issues with nano-particles – “keeping them suspended over time to ensure an unsurpassed level of performance and product appearance”. Without this longtime suspension of nano-particles (carbon, tungsten oxide, molybdenum disulfide and more), additives for many industries have experienced solubility issues, the company asserted.
“LSI Chemical will utilize our state-of-the-art laboratory to test our additives in your existing formula(s) to find the perfect balance of performance and function,” LSI Chemical Vice President of Research and Development Kevin Adams said. “We will then provide you with results to sell and market an improved product with greater benefits. Our lab of scientists are easily accessible and available to help develop products that meet your needs, all in an easy, hassle-free process.”
