Fuel Borne Catalyst

CDTi Fuel Borne Catalyst products reduce emissions, enhance in-cylinder combustion & regenerate Diesel Particulate Filters (DPFs).

Catalysts are a key part of many emission control systems; Fuel Borne Catalysts are fuel additives containing minute amounts of organo-metallic catalysts. We have developed a range of Fuel Borne Catalyst (FBC) products, with many of these based on our Platinum Plus® technology, to reduce harmful emissions and increase the performance of emission control devices.

A key application for Fuel Borne Catalysts is the regeneration of particulate filters fitted to diesel vehicles/engines. Fuel Borne Catalysts can be used as the sole method of DPF regeneration, along with other regeneration systems, or as a problem solver for DPFs that are having regeneration issues. Fuel Borne Catalysts can also commonly be known as “DPF Cleaner” or “DPF Regenerator” fuel additives.

Along with the core emission reduction functions, our FBC products can also improve combustion, resulting in increased engine efficiency and reduced fuel consumption.

We supply Fuel Borne Catalysts to the Light Duty Aftermarket and Heavy Duty Diesel retrofit market under the Platinum Plus® & PatFluid® brands, with a range of formulations depending on application and customer requirements. As well as selling our own branded products we can also supply material for private label sale.


Designed as a universal replacement for Fuel Borne Catalysts used by various European passenger car manufacturers, PatFluid® is a cost effective and highly reliable Fuel Borne Catalyst for the aftermarket. PatFluid® is for diesel vehicles with DPFs that have an on-board additive tank. When the original additive runs low, as shown by a dash warning, the tank can be refilled with PatFluid by using the PatFluid Transfer Kit. For more information please see the PatFluid product brochure here.
