Evonik obtains HX-1 certification for Viscoplex® 8-219

Viscoplex® 8-219, a versatile viscosity index improver for efficient hydraulic fluids, was registered by InS Services as an HX-1 ingredient for use in H1 lubricants with incidental food contact.

H1 fluids are widely used in and around food processing areas as well as in pharmaceutical and other applications. The HX-1 certification for Viscoplex® 8-219 allows lubricant manufacturers to formulate energy efficient H1 lubricants and complements the HX-1 certified pour point depressants Viscoplex® 1-335 and Viscoplex® 1-339.

Evonik’s Viscoplex® and Viscobase® product lines contribute to higher viscosity at high temperatures and offers minimal viscosity contribution at lower temperatures. They are used to formulate multi-grade hydraulic fluids, engine oils, transmission fluids, gear oils and other industrial lubricants.
