BRB and ARLANXEO expand distribution agreement
BRB International’s business unit Lube Oil Additives and Chemicals announced the expansion of its EU distribution agreement with ARLANXEO into Australia.
The two companies have been long-term partners in Europe, which expanded to East Asia in 2017.

– Outstanding low temperature performance

– Superior shear stability ranging from 22-70 SSI
– Available in a wide viscosity range
– Excellent dissolution in a wide variety of base stocks
