Home / Products / Additives


Oil additives are chemical compounds that improve the lubricant performance of base oil or oil ‘base stock’. The roles of additives are to enhance existing base oil properties with antioxidants, antifoam agents, de-emulsifying agents and corrosion inhibitors.

They also suppress undesirable base oil properties and impart new properties to base oils with extreme pressure (EP) additives, detergents, metal deactivators and tackiness agents.

Nearly all lubricants contain additives regardless of whether the oil is petroleum based or synthetic.

The global strength of Shamrock Shipping and Trading along with our years of industry knowledge enables us to offer product diversity on a full range of additives and integrated services to meet with all the blending needs of our clients.

While our additives help improve finished lubricants they can also be applied to and improve a wide variety of other materials including plastics, metal-working materials, water treatment, rubber, fuel additives, oilfield products and polymers for use in industrial applications.

If you would like more information on our additive products or how our services can support your business, feel free to contact us at any time.
