Behn Meyer Lubricant Day
On 23 February 2017 at Le Meridien Hotel in HCMC, Behn Meyer Vietnam (BMVN) successfully hosted Behn Meyer Lubricant Day with global manufacturers Chervon Oronite and Evonik Oil Additives.

Chevron Oronite holds a very strong position in both the global supply security and innovative technology fields, enabling it to support the growth of Vietnam’s and Asia Pacific’s lubricant industries. They focus on operational excellence with a commitment to consistent product quality and reliable global supply. With nearly 100 years of additive chemistry expertise and a global network of R&D assets and resources, they develop innovative, high quality and proven products, and also use their expertise to forecast the industry’s direction in order to develop solutions with a forward thinking approach — so that their clients will have the right product in the right market at the right time.

Behn Meyer Vietnam presented an insightful overview of the Vietnamese lubricant industry and the main driving factors behind the industry’s growth. Adding to the topic, specialists from Chevron Oronite brought to Behn Meyer Lubricant Day their knowledgeable updates on market trends in Asia Pacific, as well as the latest developments in lubricant additives in PCMO, HDEO and MCO.

Evonik Oil Additives is a global leader in PPD and PAMA VII. They brought to Behn Meyer Lubricant Day a deep understanding of viscosity index improvers and the different requirements of PAMA VII in AEO and IEO. In their presentation, they introduced Nuflux as a new solution for base oils in order to blend high performance gear oils, as well as Dynavis as a high-efficiency hydraulic oil. These industry solutions were developed with the global concern of energy savings in mind.

The sharing from Chevron Oronite and Evonik Oil Additives were highly appreciated by local blenders — as Vietnam’s GDP continues along its strong growth trend, lubricant oils have been significantly developed to high tiers, generating higher performances in automotive engine oils, motorcycle oils and industrial oils.

Behn Meyer Lubricant Day proved to be an exciting event, with many questions raised by the participants to the experts; in fact, the full-day seminar had to be prolonged into the late evening in order that all the questions raised could be comprehensively answered. Many participants went on to request for more tech advice, samples and further technical meetings after the seminar was done.

Behn Meyer Vietnam is very pleased that Behn Meyer Lubricant Day proved to be such a useful event that was well appreciated by the industry. We will continue to honour our commitment to bring global expertise to the local industry through strong infrastructure and our local team with technical backgrounds.
