Primrose Additives

The superior quality of Primrose Plus allows for such application flexibility, that a reduced lubricant inventory is the norm.

The Primrose Plus family consists of the Armor Plate with Moly-D lubricants, all of which utilize our exclusive friction modifier Moly-D, an oil soluble molybdenum compound.

Primrose Armor Plate with Moly-D Lubricants provide unexcelled anti-friction protection in all areas of application. Under points of contact with high pressure and resultant heat, Moly-D fills the microscopic peaks and valleys, forming a layer of boundary lubrication which actually “plates” metal surfaces. Armor Plate offers the ultimate protection against wear.

No metal surface, no matter how highly polished, is perfectly smooth. Those seemingly smooth surfaces, viewed microscopically, reveal rough asperities, or peaks and valleys, which can penetrate a film of ordinary oil and cause friction. Friction is one of the greatest contributors to metal wear.

This is where Primrose Armor Plate lubricants come in. The key to the Armor Plate line of lubricants is Moly-D, a proprietary molybdenum compound with exceptional friction-reducing properties. Molybdenum itself, a member of the chromium group, is one of the hardest metals known to man and is used in the manufacture of armor plate steel, yet in a parallel plane has one of the lowest coefficients of friction known – hence the name for this exceptional line of custom lubricants.

Also included in the Primrose Plus family is the Odyssey line of synthetic blend products. These combine the advantages of petroleum and high quality synthetic base stocks. Primrose Plus custom lubricants remain the benchmark for high performance oils and greases.

Ford named in class action lawsuit over defective CP4 high pressure fuel injection pump

Ford Motor Company has sold—and continues to sell—millions of diesel trucks equipped with high-pressure fuel injection pumps that are proverbial ticking time bombs, wholly unbeknownst to an unassuming American public who pays for these vehicles’ fictitious “durability,” “longevity,” and “top notch fuel economy.” As alleged, Ford promised consumers the continued reliability of their diesel engines with increased fuel efficiency and power at greater fuel efficiency. However, this came with a hidden and catastrophic cost that was secretly passed on to consumers.


Lawsuit says GM sold trucks not compatible with U.S. diesel fuel

General Motors Co. has been hit with a class-action lawsuit alleging it equipped 2011-2016 GMC and Chevrolet diesel trucks with 6.6-liter Duramax engines that are not compatible with American diesel fuel.

The lawsuit, filed Wednesday in federal court in Detroit, alleges GM sold “hundreds of thousands” of diesels with high-pressure fuel injection pumps designed by German auto supplier Bosch that pumped metal shavings into the fuel injection system and damaged the fuel system and engines.


Premium Oil diesel fuel additives.

The Premium Select line has evolved from a single product formulated to overcome the fuel deficiencies common during World War II.

As middle distillate fuel quality continues to fluctuate, emissions standards increase and OEM design parameters tighten, fuel additizing remains necessary. Furthermore, we have products that are effective in bio-diesel B100. Besides being the name for Primrose’s family of premium fuel treatment products, Premium Select is also the name of Primrose’s support program for fuel marketers.

The advent of the chemical synthesis of petroleum oils has ushered in a new age in lubrication technology.

New advances in controlling friction, preventative maintenance, and the management of industrial operational costs are a result of specially engineered synthetic lubricants.

Syn-O-Gen wholly engineered synthetic lubricants have been specifically designed for the extra heavy duty applications found in industry where operational conditions outstrip the capabilities of conventional petroleum based oils and greases.

Although synthetic, Syn-O-Gen Lubricants are chemically synthesized from petroleum feedstocks. The big difference between Syn-O-Gen and conventional petroleum or mineral oil-based lubricants is that Syn-O-Gen is chemically engineered from specific hydrocarbon molecules. Put together much like building blocks, certain simple hydrocarbons are bonded to obtain a unique complex hydrocarbon with specific and predictable properties.

In addition, Syn-O-Gen provides several principal advantages over both natural petroleum lubricants and other synthetic lubricants:


  • Reduction of wear due to superior viscosity-temperature properties and shear stability.
  • Elimination of sludge and deposit formations with unsurpassed high-temperature oxidation and thermal stability.
  • Outstanding cold weather performance and low temperature fluidity.
  • Greatly extended service intervals due to superior base stock and additive synergism.
  • Decreased lubricant consumption due to low volatility.
  • Reduced power and energy consumption attributable to greatly reduced coefficients of friction.
  • Address environmental issues thru conservation.
  • Superior high temperature performance and resistance to thinning.
  • Reduced used lubricant disposal.
