Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0196503A2] Additives for improving the flowability of mineral oils, containing A) 1 -40 wt. % of at least one copolymer, which is oil-soluble and improves the cold flow properties of mineral oil, B) 20 - 80 wt. % of at least one poly- alpha -olefin with a molecular weight of 250 -5000, derived from monoolefins with 3 - 5 C atoms, and C) 5 - 70 wt. % of at least one organic acid selected from C1) alkylphenol-aldehyde resins and C2) aliphatic and/or aromatic sulfonic acids.

[origin: WO0196503A2] The invention relates to additives for improving the flowability of mineral oils, containing A) 1 -40 wt. % of at least one copolymer, which is oil-soluble and improves the cold flow properties of mineral oil, selected from A1) copolymers consisting of 80 96.5 mol % ethylene and 3.5 -20 mol % vinyl esters of carboxylic acids with 1 - 20 C atoms and/or (meth)acrylic acid esters of alcohols with 1 -8 C atoms, and A2) homopolymers or copolymers of esters, containing C10-C30 alkyl radicals, of ethylenically unsaturated carboxylic acids with up to 20 mol % of other olefinically unsaturated compounds, B) 20 - 80 wt. % of at least one poly- alpha -olefin with a molecular weight of 250 -5000, derived from monoolefins with 3 - 5 C atoms, and C) 5 - 70 wt. % of at least one organic acid selected from C1) alkylphenol-aldehyde resins of formula (1), wherein R<1> and R<2> independently designate H or alkyl radicals with 1 - 30 C atoms, but both radicals do not at the same time signify H, n represents an integer of 3 - 50, and R<3> represents H or an alkyl radical with1 - 4 C atoms, and C2) aliphatic and/or aromatic sulfonic acids of formula R<18>-SO3H, wherein R<18> stands for C6-C40-alkyl, C6- C40-alkenyl, or an alk(en)yl aryl radical which has1, 2, 3 or 4 aromatic rings and 1, 2, 3 or 4 alkyl or aryl radicals with respectively 6 - 40 C-atoms.
