Tech Blog 101: What is the Most Important Physical Property of a Lubricant?

Viscosity is the Most Important Physical Property of a Lubricant There are other physical properties, too, such as temperature performance, shear stability, water resistance and volatility, all of which can be managed for optimal lubricant performance using appropriate base-stock formulations and additive packages. Viscosity is the most important physical property of a lubricant. How the viscosity of a fluid reacts to changes in temperature, pressure or speed determines how well a fluid can perform the basic functions of a lubricant.

AMSOIL Smashes the Industry Standard – Again

A New Level of Protection & Performance on the Horizon A potentially catastrophic problem is surfacing in today’s engines. Here’s how AMSOIL has solved it.   Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have been aggressively downsizing engines to meet strict fuel-economy and emissions standards while improving power and torque. Most new engines today use some combination of turbochargers, direct-fuel injection and variable valve timing to make more power than their larger counterparts while delivering improved fuel economy. This scenario seems like all up-side for drivers. But today’s smaller, hotter-running engines pose significant challenges to lubricants. The latest is a phenomenon called low-speed pre-ignition […]
