A lubricant must provide the following basic functions:
  • Act as a coolant by heat removal

  • Provide a film between moving parts to minimize friction leading to wear However, sophisticated complex machinery demands much more from all lubricants. Intricate engines with close tolerances between moving parts would not be possible without engine oils containing a tailored package of chemical additives. Progressive advances in additive technology not only allow today’s engines to operate efficiently, but also dramatically increase the engine’s useful life and reduce engine maintenances costs.
