Pour point depressants are designed to interfere in the wax crystallisation process, thus modifying the crystal structure.

PPD's are structured so that part of the molecule is like paraffin wax crystals, which acts by providing nucleation sites and co-crystallisation with the waxes.

The other part of the structure is dissimilar to the wax crystals and blocks the extensive growth of wax matrices.

The effect is a better flow behaviour and a depression of the pour point. Viscosimetry and flow simulation in test loops are performed by Scomi Anticor to design the appropriate pour point depressant.

The 2 graphs below illustrate the benefits of deploying Scomi Anticor's formulations which are able to significantly improve the flow characteristics:
