The key to maintaining an engine and prolonging its life (and the life of the car) is in keeping it clean and protected from fast wear and tear. These factors greatly affect the everyday performance and resilience of the engine. With the innovative properties of synthetic engine oils today, these aspects of engine protection and cleanliness are enhanced.
What threatens the engine components?
Engines produce substantial friction and heat from its moving metal components. These adverse factors make the machine prone to corrosion (rust) and other damages, especially if the driver uses high power or speed, or if he/she drives during intense weather conditions.
Lubricants allow engines to operate with less tendency to develop these deteriorations, but impurities from these oils build up over time. The accumulating byproducts of heated or burnt engine oils, plus contaminating dirt and debris, may clog the engine parts and tarnish them faster.
How do modern engine oils ward off these threats?
With the advancements in synthetic engine oil manufacturing, the combination of high-performance base oils and additives significantly improves the performance of the lubricant. When you provide your customers or equip your fleet with these lab-engineered lubricants, the vehicles’ engines could run more efficiently and safely, even in extreme conditions or in high speeds. As the engine runs, the motor oil coats its components with protective chemicals and prevents or disperses buildup.
