PureThe base stocks from which synthetic lubricants aremade contain no sulfur, nitrogen or other elements thatinvite the formation of sludge and other products oflubricant breakdown. Synthetic lubricants can be usedin higher temperatures than refined lubricants withoutbreaking down. Their resistance to breakdown alsoallows them to be used longer than refined lubricantscan be used. Lubricated systems stay cleaner and lastlonger with synthetics.
UniformThe base stocks from which synthetic lubricants aremade feature uniform and smooth molecular struc-tures, which ensures low friction as lubricant layersslide across one another. Reduced friction increasesenergy through-put for greater fuel efficiency and power,and reduces heat and wear for longer equipment life.
Molecular uniformity also helps synthetics resist thin-ning in heat and thickening in cold, which helps themprotect better than refined oils over a systems operat-ing temperature range and helps ensure secure sealing.
DesignableMany different kinds of base stocks may be used tocreate synthetic lubricants, allowing a synthetic to bedesigned for virtually any application. Some base stocksare ideal for use in extremely cold environments, othersare perfect for use in extreme heat. Some are extremelysafe in applications in which refined lubricants pose afire or explosion hazard. Refined oils simply do notoffer the design flexibility synthetics offer.
The designability of synthetics also allows them to betailored very specifically to the needs of everyday appli-cations, such as automotive engines, commercial equip-ment or industrial machinery. That specificity helps ensurelong life and peak power, performance and fuel economyfrom the lubricated system, as well as long lubricant life.
Engines, transmissions and other mechanical systemscontain hundreds of moving parts. Though the metalsurfaces of these parts look smooth, they are actuallyfull of microscopic peaks and valleys. When the peak ofone surface touches its mating surface, it causesdamage. Damage may lead to component failure orwear. Failure prevention and wear reduction are theprimary functions of lubrication.
Refined OilsConventional oils the oils most people are familiar with are refined from crude oil. Refining is a process ofphysically separating light oil components from heavyones.
Crude oil contains a full range of different kinds ofmolecules. Many are similar in weight but not in struc-ture. The refining process cannot distinguish suchmolecules, so a wide assortment of molecules is presentin a finished lubricant made from crude oil stocks.
Some crude oil molecules are not beneficial to thelubrication process. For example, paraffin causes refinedlubricants to thicken and flow poorly in cold tempera-tures. Molecules containing sulfur, nitrogen and otherelements invite the formation of sludge and other prod-ucts of lubricant breakdown, especially in high-tem-perature applications. Sludge and breakdown productssignificantly increase wear rates.
The assorted molecules of refined lubricants alsohave different shapes, making lubricant surfaces irreg-ular at the molecular level. As lubricant layers flowacross one another during the lubrication process,these irregularities create friction, which consumespower, reduces efficiency and increases heat and wear.
Synthetic LubricantsSynthetic lubricants are chemically engineered frompure chemicals rather than refined from crude oil. Thatgives them significant advantages over refined oils.
What Are Synthetic Lubricants?
Why Are AMSOIL SyntheticLubricants the Best?
As a jet fighter squadron commander Lieutenant ColonelAlbert J. Amatuzio had ample opportunity to witness syn-thetic lubricants in action. These oils are used exclusivelyin jet engines because of three extraordinary performancecharacteristics: an ability to reduce friction and wear onengine components, an ability to function dependably atsevere temperature extremes and an ability to withstandrigorous and lengthy engine operation without chemicalbreakdown.
Recognizing that these same benefits would proveinvaluable in combustion engines, Amatuzio began con-ducting serious research in 1963. By 1966 he had formu-lated a synthetic motor oil and put it to use in vehicles innorthern Minnesota. Throughout the late 60s Amatuziocontinued his research and development and sold com-mercially available synthetic oils under a variety of names.In 1970 he incorporated his own name into a commerciallysold product called AMMOIL. In 1971 this product namewas changed to AMZOIL and it continued to be sold com-mercially. The true milestone came in 1972 when AMZOILbecame the first synthetic motor oil in the world to meetAmerican Petroleum Institute criteria. The new lubricantperformed like no other before it. When the first canappeared on the market in 1972, it signaled the birth of anentire industry.
During the past 35 years, AMSOIL synthetic lubricantshave expanded the boundaries of lubrication science andredefined the performance possibilities of engines, equip-ment and machinery in automotive, commercial and indus-trial use. Why are AMSOIL synthetic lubricants the bestlubricants available?
High-Temperature Protection and PerformanceAMSOIL synthetic lubricants are much more stable inhigh temperatures than are refined oils. Their superiorheat stability reduces the rates of oil consumption, lubri-cant breakdown and lubricant oxidation, which keeps oilconsumption low, equipment clean, protected and runningright, and extends lubricant life.
Cold-Temperature Protection and PerformanceAMSOIL synthetic lubricants remain fluid in temperatures
far below zero, allowing dependable engine start-up, fastlubrication, dependable protection and maximum fueleconomy in severe cold operations.
Increased EfficiencyAMSOIL synthetic lubricants are superior to refined oils inreducing friction, helping lubricated systems use fuelenergy for work, not for overcoming drag. Superior frictionreduction, as well as lower volatility rates, also helps keepexhaust emissions low.
Longer Engine and Equipment LifeAMSOIL synthetic lubricants heat stability and friction-reducing ability keep wear rates low, which helps increasethe time to first teardown, increases the interval betweenteardowns and increases overall equipment life.
Extended Lubricant Drain IntervalsAMSOIL synthetic lubricants offer eight times the servicelife offered by refined lubricants, sometimes even more.The long life of AMSOIL synthetic lubricants reducescosts, downtime, waste and environmental damage.
Product LineAMSOIL manufactures synthetic lubricants, advanced fil-tration systems, fuel additives and coolant for virtuallyevery commercial, industrial or automotive application.
Quality ControlAMSOIL synthetic lubricants are manufactured from top-quality synthetic base stocks and performance additivesaccording to a stringent quality control protocol in com-puter-controlled AMSOIL manufacturing facilities. AMSOILsynthetic lubricants may be counted on to deliver thesame top-quality performance and protection every timethey are used, no matter where in the world they are purchased.
ExperienceAMSOIL formulated the first API-rated synthetic motor oil inthe world and has more experience formulating syntheticlubricants than any other manufacturer in the world. AMSOILleads the industry in product quality and innovation.
