Choosing Synthetic Oil for Your Customers

Not all synthetic motor oil gives the same value. This lubricant generally offers more advantages than conventional oil, but not every product lets users enjoy the maximum benefits. When you’re asked by your customers for the synthetic oil that suits their needs and delivers the best results, you have to know the properties that make up a quality lubricant.

First, why synthetic?
Generally, when the base oil of the motor oil is synthetically produced, the properties are more consistent and even uniform. With this ideal quality, the oil flows through the engine smoothly and evenly. Conventional or mineral oil products that are derived from refined crude oil lack this consistency.

It’s all about the additives.
Even though it makes up a minor percentage of the composition, additives to the motor oil mainly influence the oil’s efficiency. Even if the base oil is of poor quality, a complete set of additives that complement the lubricant requirements of modern engines could render the motor oil’s excellent performance. The synthetic oil’s consistency improves this effect further, as its molecules react more predictably to the added fluids (which means it can be controlled or altered to create a better blend).

Reputable brands or manufacturers pack synthetic base oils with the most optimal combination of additives, like detergents, rust inhibitors, viscosity modifiers, and friction modifiers. All these compounds enhance the lubrication and prolong the life of synthetic motor oils, allowing your customers to have less frequent oil changes and better engine performance and protection.
