What are synthetic lubricants?
Synthetic lubricant products are composed of distilled base lubricants free from impurities blended with additives and provide a higher level of protection and performance. The many benefits of synthetic lubricants ensure that engines are able to perform at maximum efficiency for many years.Types of lubricant
There are two main types of lubricant
- Ordinary mineral lubricant is the traditional type of lubricant and is still widely used today.
- Synthetic lubricant is now becoming more popular.
In addition, there are also semi-synthetic lubricants, which are a blend of synthetic lubricants and ordinary mineral lubricants. Semi-synthetic lubricants are also known as 'synthetic blends'. Both types of lubricant are produced from mined raw lubricants. The difference is that synthetic lubricants undergo a higher level of distillation and offer a superior level of purification and quality compared to ordinary base mineral lubricants or even semi-synthetic lubricants. Not only are more impurities eliminated from the raw lubricant, but synthetic lubricant molecules are also more adapted to modern engines. These specially selected and adapted molecules protect your engine and enable it to perform better even in poor environments.
