DVM (Dispersant Viscosity Modifiers)

Lubrizol Dispersant Viscosity Modifiers (DVM) are functionalized polymers that offer enhanced performance over conventional VMs for crankcase and driveline lubricants. DVMs control sludge and deposits and have been shown to reduce wear, improve low temperature operation, control soot-related thickening, and preserve performance of flexible fuel vehicles. Lubrizol’s functionalization expertise married with its wide range of polymer technologies and shear stabilities enable customers to meet current and future lubricant challenges, while providing opportunities for differentiation. Lubrizol continues to invest in leading-edge DVM technology to meet tomorrow’s needs.
