Viscosity Modifiers

Viscosity modifiers reduce the change in viscosity of a lubricant when it is subjected to changes in temperature.

At high temperatures the lubricant polymer chains uncoil, occupying more volume, thickening and becoming less viscous. At low temperatures, polymer chains coil more, thicken less and become increasingly viscous.

Viscosity modifiers balance this change, so as lubricants cool and heat their viscosity level is maintained.
