AMSOIL Built-In Additives Improve
Motor Oil Performance
quality of AMSOIL synthetic lubricants doesn't require catchy
marketing terms to grab your attention.
Most people aren't
drawn to chemistry, and the majority of people would rather
do many other things before sitting down to have a really
engaging discussion around polymer science. My wife is a perfect
example. Sometimes, when I get home from work, I share a little
bit of my day and talk about an exciting new technology with
her. She listens pretty well, but the last time I talked with
her about some intriguing dispersant research, she said that she would rather
be at the dentist's office. Honestly, I never would
have guessed that a dentist would know more about lubrication
science than a lubrication guy!
While I find chemistry
fascinating, I admit I'm in the minority. That's
why many oil companies coin catchy terminology to describe
the chemistry of their motor oils. You've no doubt seen
the ads on TV or encountered labels at the auto parts store
that tout "Liquid Titanium*" protection or "Titanium
Fluid Strength Technology.*" One oil company informs
consumers its motor oil contains "Synerlec*," which
is its proprietary additive technology. Then there's
"Magnatec*" and its "intelligent molecules."
We could go on.
To some, this
terminology evokes technological advancement and exclusivity.
It attempts to strike an emotional chord and helps convince
motorists they're providing their vehicles a special
level of protection unavailable elsewhere.
What excites us
at AMSOIL is designing, formulating and testing unique chemistries that
provide the best engine protection and performance possible in motor
oil. We don't use catchy slogans to identify the design,
additives, formulations or testing behind our products. We
instead build on the AMSOIL brand and try to earn our stripes
every day through hard work, smart decisions and an unwavering
commitment to quality. No bells, no whistles - just outstanding
performance that helps motorists get the most out of their
vehicles and equipment.
At the risk of
sending some of you to the dentist's office, I'd
like to explain how specific motor oil properties affect your
vehicles and equipment.
Motor oils are
comprised of many different components, but in two fundamental
categories: base oils and additives. Using synthetic base
oils is a good start, but without the right additives in the correct
combinations, synthetic base oils alone cannot fulfill the
requirements of an engine.
enhance the base oil's beneficial properties by, for
example, resisting oxidation, corrosion or foam. They impart
new properties by providing benefits like extreme-pressure
wear protection and added detergency for improved cleanliness.
And they reduce the base oil's negative properties by,
for example, lowering the pour point or increasing the viscosity
improvers (VII) are a good example. They paved the way for
the multigrade oils common today, allowing, for example, a
5W-30 oil to deliver the fluidity of an SAE 5W oil when cold
and the stability of an SAE 30 oil when at operating temperature,
providing the best of both worlds.
Other common additives
include the following:
Inhibitors - improve oil service life, reduce viscosity
increase and formation of deposits and sludge
– minimize deposit formation in high-temperature
areas of an engine
– help suspend solid contaminants within the
lubricant to prevent sludge, varnish and other deposits
Inhibitors – form a protective film on metal
surfaces, protecting them against chemical attack
– provide a sacrificial wear surface to prevent
Modifiers – improve lubricity and maximize
Agents – reduce surface tension of air bubbles,
resulting in more rapid breakdown of bubbles
make up as much as 30 percent of a motor oil's formulation.
Modern additive systems can be sensitive to specific materials
and negatively affected by the addition of other chemicals.
Therefore, AMSOIL doesn't recommended mixing lubricants.
You should also avoid using aftermarket additives that promise
improved wear protection, fuel economy or other benefits.
They're unnecessary in AMSOIL synthetic motor oils and
can disrupt their precisely balanced formulations.
Don't expect AMSOIL
to market Amalec, Synerzoil or Tungsten-Enfused Oil anytime
soon. Do expect to see more proof of superior performance
and value in AMSOIL synthetic motor oils. Published, AMSOIL
AMSOIL Signature Series
Synthetic Motor Oil

Synthetic Motor Oils offer the longest drain intervals
on the market, unsurpassed protection and performance that
effectively extends equipment life and improved fuel economy,
saving customers money at the pump and reducing the nation's
dependence on foreign oil.

synthetic motor oils are formulated to surpass engine test
specifications, offering protection far greater than competing
motor oils for extended drain intervals. Most synthetic oil
manufacturers make no claim to extended drain intervals, deferring
to the maintenance schedule provided by the vehicle manufacturer.
With its unparalleled oil and warranty program, AMSOIL offers
consumers unprecedented protection and economics.
More than 20 years
ago, AMSOIL began using the NOACK volatility test as a comparison
tool and measurement of quality. Back then, nearly every oil
tested side-by-side with AMSOIL synthetic motor oils failed,
and those that passed barely squeaked by. Other oil companies
paid no attention to NOACK results until Ford Motor Company
made it a requirement for service fill oils, validating what
AMSOIL had said all along.
NOACK Volatility Test
Volatility Test determines the evaporation loss
of lubricants in high temperature service. The more
motor oils vaporize, the thicker and heavier they become,
contributing to poor circulation, reduced fuel economy
and increased oil consumption, wear and emissions. AMSOIL
Synthetic Motor Oil resists high temperature volatization
better than other motor oils. AMSOIL Synthetic Motor
Oil maintains peak fuel efficiency and reduces oil consumption
