AMSOIL - Reducing Friction Is
An Oil's Primary Function
Lubricants Have Inherently Superior Lubricity For Maximum
The friction created
in equipment as a result of surfaces rubbing together robs
us of huge amounts of energy each year. Just think if we could
eliminate this energy-robbing phenomenon; there would be no
energy shortages and we would all save money through lower
there is no solution that completely eliminates this energy drain, so we have to live with these losses. We have
not given up this quest though, and progress is made each
year toward minimizing energy-robbing friction. On the other
hand, we depend heavily on friction-producing events every
day. We all want significant friction between the soles of
our boots and ice when we walk on slippery sidewalks. We also
appreciate the value of friction when we want our cars to
stop quickly to avoid an accident.
are tasked with fulfilling many important functions, such
as cooling and cleaning, reducing friction is their primary purpose. When placed between
two components in contact, lubricants maintain a layer of
separation. Though the separation may be only a few millionths
of an inch, it is sufficient to minimize contact.
Lubricity is the
measure of a lubricant's friction-reduction capabilities, and it
varies from one fluid to another. Base-oil design and friction-reducing
additives both impact a lubricant's friction-reduction capabilities.
The use and balance of these materials impact the friction characteristics of
the overall system.
response to temperature changes, ability to form a film under
pressure and polarity affect its lubricity.
We all know that
it is desirable for lubricant viscosity to change as little
as possible with temperature fluctuations, and the measure for this property is viscosity
index. When a lubricant becomes too thick in cold temperatures,
it will not readily flow to the areas that need to be lubricated.
If it becomes too thin at high temperatures, the thin film
separating surfaces becomes disrupted, allowing metal-to-metal
a higher viscosity index are better because their viscosity
changes less with temperature swings.
lubricant property is the ability to resist shearing or tearing
under stress. The starting thickness of an oil is important,
but the more critical property is the thickness of the oil
after it has run in the equipment part way through the lubricant
life. Oil formulations built with cheaper viscosity improvers
tend to shear more, resulting in much lower lubricant thickness
part way through the lubricant life. This results in reduced
protection, which can be of particular concern if the equipment is highly dependent
on a specific lubricant viscosity.
polarity is a measure of a material's affinity for like surfaces.
Water and metal are two examples of polar surfaces. Highly
refined petroleum oils by themselves are not highly polar
and do not naturally migrate to metal surfaces. High-quality
synthetic lubricants, on the other hand, have the correct
polarity, which allows them to provide effective boundary
lubrication and separation of surfaces.
Whether it is
a bearing, gear or cylinder, minimizing contact between components
minimizes friction and wear. An oil's viscosity and
inherent lubricity are the key characteristics in minimizing contact between components. When the viscosity
is insufficient to totally separate the components, anti-wear
or extreme-pressure additives provide separation by forming
is the primary weapon to fight the battle against friction.
Synthetic lubricants are chemically engineered from the ground
up to ensure molecular uniformity, purity and predictable
chemical properties. For these reasons, synthetic lubricants
can outperform conventional lubricants in the areas of quality,
reliability and service life. AMSOIL synthetic lubricants
also feature outstanding additive combinations to provide
industry-leading protection against friction and ensure peak
equipment operation and longevity. That means better mileage,
less downtime, less maintenance and more savings for you.

AMSOIL Signature Series
Synthetic Motor Oil
AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic
Motor Oils are formulated to meet the latest API SN Resource
Conserving and ILSAC GF-5 industry specifications. AMSOIL
Signature Series Oils include 0W-20, 0W-30, 5W-30 and 10W-30
and represent the very best motor oils AMSOIL has to offer,
allowing motorists to take advantage of maximum extended
drain intervals. AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Motor
Oils are recommended for drain intervals of up to 25,000
miles/one year, whichever comes first (15,000 miles/one
year in severe service conditions).

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
