Power Up HydraMaxx Printable Technical Data Sheet

Power Up HydraMaxx MSDS Sheet

HydraMaxx is specially designed for use in hydraulic systems, where piston, gear or vane pumps are used to circulate oil and transmit power.  HydraMaxx is the first hydraulic oil treatment specifically designed to maintain maximum operating efficiency of your hydraulic system. This unique hydraulic system treatment from Power Up works wirh your existing oil to provide long term wear and corrosion protection for metal components and extend seal and hose life.

At low application rates, HydraMaxx provides a wear-reducing, protective film inside pumps and valves that helps to reduce operating temperatures and extend equipment life.  HydraMaxx also improves the corrosion inhibiting properties and the low temperature flow properties of hydraulic oils to provide long-term protection in the most demanding applications.

Primary Benefits of HydraMaxx:

HydraMaxx reduces friction within the boundary lubrication regime where metal-to-metal contact occurs, primarily in the pump, cylinder rod and control valve areas of the hydraulic system.  Reducing friction lowers operating temperatures and improves component performance, efficiency and longevity.

Secondary Benefits of HydraMaxx:

  • Supplements protection against rust and corrosion
  • Improves low temperature fluidity
  • Improves the oil’s ability to demulsify (separate) water
  • Emulsifies trace water to maintain a protective oil film that resists rupture
  • Improves the oil’s ability to clean and disperse contaminants.
  • Improves filtration efficiency by reducing the generation of large wear particles.


A 5% application of HydraMaxx in typical ISO 32, 46 and 68 hydraulic oils results in little or no change in the viscosity or viscosity index of the oil.

Boundary Lubrication Protection

HydraMaxx enhances the protection of your equipment and its components while they experience conditions of high friction and wear in the boundary lubrication regime. Lower friction provides users lower operating temperatures. Calculated estimates suggest that the use of HydraMaxx will extend equipment life up to 2.39 times by reducing wear up to 58%.

Inhibits Rust and Corrosion

HydraMaxx is formulated to provide excellent corrosion protection. This can be evaluated using the Copper Corrosion test, ASTM D130, and the Rust Prevention Characteristics test, ASTM D665. Paraffinic oils additized with 5% HydraMaxx display excellent copper corrosion ratings of 1b (slight tarnish) and easily pass the rusting characteristics requirements of ASTM D665.

Cold Weather Fluid Flow (Pour Point)

HydraMaxx imparts a positive influence to the pour point of most hydraulic oils. This benefit is evaluated using the ASTM method D97. Table 1 clearly shows the improvements in the pour points of hydraulic fluids additized with HydraMaxx, where the average pour point is lowered by up to 18˚F (10˚C).


HydraMaxx improves an oil’s ability to separate water. This benefit is evaluated using the ASTM method D1401. Table 2 clearly shows the improvements in demulsibility of hydraulic fluids additized with HydraMaxx.

Product Application:

HydraMaxx is recommended in all hydraulic circulating systems at a 3% ratio for ambient temperatures above 0˚C (32˚F) and a 5% ratio in operating conditions where the temperature may drop below 0˚C (32˚F).  HydraMaxx is recommended for use with mineral oils and polyalphaolefin and diester based synthetic fluids. HydraMaxx is not recommended for use with water based fluids, phosphate esters or polyglycol fluids.
