Modern engines require a high fuel quality. KEROPUR® performance packages are designed to perform not only in conventional engines but also in modern powertrain technologies such as direct injected engines (DISI), downsized / turbo charged engines, flex fuel engines and hybrids. Our expertise enables continuous product development to go along with the development of new engine technologies.
KEROPUR® gasoline performance packages protect the intake system of engines by forming a fluid protective film and thus preventing the formation of deposits ("keep clean effect").
This applies for both Port Fuel Injection and Direct Injection Spark Ignition engines. The cleaner engine system results in better performance, improved combustion and a longer engine life
Approximately 10 % of the energy released by the combustion of the gasoline is lost due to internal friction in the engine. KEROPUR® gasoline performance packages can be formulated with very effective friction modifiers minimizing friction between the piston rings and the cylinder wall, which results in an instantaneous fuel economy benefits.
KEROPUR® gasoline performance packages contain a very effective corrosion inhibitor to protect metallic parts from rust formation along the entire supply chain.
