Over 25 Years Of Innovation
International Lubricants, Inc. (ILI) has long been recognized as a leader in the research, development and manufacturing of highly specialized synthetic lubricants to various markets including the Automotive, Marine, Industrial, Agricultural, Cosmetic, and other industries. ILI engineers and produces its very own patented and proprietary premium lubricating technologies including the trademarks LXE® (Liquid Wax Ester), Synergol TMS®, Glossamer®, Erucichem®, etc. ILI leads the industry and developed the majority of these premium technologies utilizing renewable resources keeping the environment in mind.
ILI’s success in the marketplace is largely due to the unique technology behind its liquid wax ester, (LXE technology), which is a direct molecular replacement for Sperm Whale Oil, or more specifically, Spermaceti Oil. After the Endangered Species Act banned the killing of the whales, a suitable lubricant additive replacement was not available. For years, chemists and engineers had tried in vain to develop other mineral, or synthetic based products that would yield the lubricating and heat dissipating properties spermaceti oil provided. International Lubricants Incorporated accomplished just that with a unique molecule, known as a liquid wax ester, registered under the trade name LXE®. This molecule is non-petroleum based, non-toxic and non-flammable and is the largest molecule of its kind.
ILI quickly gained notoriety in the automotive industry by particularly addressing crucial service issues in vehicles’ automatic transmissions arising from the absence of spermaceti oil in automatic transmission fluids. LXE Technology’s molecular structure made it possible to fight oxidation, heat build-up, converter chatter as well as address several other performance issues in a way that still remains unparalleled.
