Wear- and drag reducer and lubricity improving additive


– Drilling Muds
– Greases
– Connector lubricants, Jacking greases
– Offshore lubricants such as gear oils, hydraulic fluids, finishing fluids
– Windmill gears for offshore and onshore wind farms
– Use in lubricants and greases for railroad and/or near water courses or any environmentally sensitive area

Additin RC 8012 is a unique performance chemical designed for use in all environmentally sensitive applications,
particularly offshore. It provides outstanding lubricity, friction reduction as well as drag/wear reduction under
extreme pressure frictional conditions. This outstanding technical performance is combined with excellent
compatibility with the sea water environment, as proven by marine food chain toxicity and sea water
biodegradability tests (for more information see MSDS).

Additin RC 8012 is a unique state of the art high technology product to fulfill the challenges in all environmentally
sensitive applications, including offshore lubricants and fluids by combining improved technical performance with
environmental compatibility.

It is ideally suited for heavy duty drilling operations both in oil and in waterbased muds where a low frictional
lubrication film is essential in order to protect casing and tubing against wear and reduce drilling force and energy
consumption. It may be considered a univerisal performance chemical to improve life time of equipment, reduce
friction for a longer, deeper and smoother drill and thereby increase the rate of penetration (ROP).

Additin RC 8012 enhances extreme pressure, antiwear and lubricity properties in all kinds of offshore fluids and
lubricants such finishing fluids, hydraulics, gears oils and greases (e.g. connector greases).


Soluble in mineral oils and esters. Emulsifyable in emulsions. However, it is necessary to verify the solubility in the
base oils used and the compatibility with other additives.

Storage conditions

in a dry place at room temperature approx. 12 month


Additin® RC 4820 may become turbid to semi-crystalline upon storage. Material can be easily liquified by heating
to approx. 50 °C prior to formulation.

Consult material safety data sheet (MSDS)
for additional handling information on Additin RC 8012.
