This article reviews viscosity modifiers, additives that increase the viscosity of lubricating oils. Viscosity modifiers are high molecular weight polymers whose functionality is derived from their thickening efficiency, viscosity–temperature relationship, and shear stability. There are now many different additive chemistries and architectures available, all of which have advantages and disadvantages, and affect solution viscosity through different mechanisms. Understanding these mechanisms and how they impart additive function is critical to the development of new viscosity modifiers that enable lubricants to function more efficiently over a wide range of temperatures.
