What is a lubricant?

Discover the role of lubricants in our video below :


The metal parts of your motor endure the impacts of contact as they rub together. This produces warmth and prompts untimely wear. It's somewhat similar to water-skiing. The lightness of the water helps you to float over the waves all the more effectively. The same principle applies to a lubricant inside your engine. The oil decreases the impacts of grinding between the moving parts. Thus, they destroy more gradually and don't warm up. The oil decreases the measure of contact, which enhances the execution of the motor and also reduces its fuel consumption.

In any case, that is not all. Your lubricant  secures your motor against consumption and corrosive assaults. It additionally decreases the temperature of your motor.

Finally, it expels any polluting influences that may amass after some time (residue, tidy and wear flotsam and jetsam), which keeps up the execution level of your motor.

Your lubricant is made out of 70% base oil and 30% added substances.

The added substances give fundamental properties:

The antioxidant additives increase the oil's ability to resist high temperatures, which results in less frequent oil changes.

Different added substances keep up the lubricity of the oil.

The detergent additives prevent from deposits formation, which keeps the motor clean and keeps up its execution level all through its lifetime.

The anti-foaming additives keep the oil from foaming and prevent the oil pump from running dry.

The icy temperature additives help the grease to stay liquid at low temperatures, allowing the engine to start easier.

The anti-wear additives increase the longevity of your engine by creating a protective barrier on the surface of the parts.

The extreme-pressure additives increase resistance to wear and reduce friction.

In the end, the anti-corrosion additives prevent acid, water and air from attacking the different metal parts. This means that your engine remains younger for longer.

So now you know everything there is to know about the role of lubricants and their additives.
