Maximizing Performance and Minimizing Environmental Impact through use of Group V Ester Technology

Herein, we compare conventionally used base oils (Groups I – IV) with innovative ester technologies. We examine not only their inherent sustainability benefits but also their handprint, which encompasses their tribological performance and benefits in-use. This analysis employs testing that is applicable to both industrial and automotive applications.

This paper will demonstrate that esters offer significant advantages in reducing friction when compared to Group I – IV counterparts. Studies have shown that this can lead to improved energy efficiency in tribological systems.
