Why Are Amsoil Synthetic Lubricants Best?
Colonel Albert J. Amatuzio served as an award-winning jet fighter pilot
for 25 years and had ample opportunity to witness synthetic lubricants in
action. These oils are used exclusively in jet engines because of three
extraordinary performance characteristics: an ability to reduce friction
and wear, an ability to function dependably at temperature extremes and an
ability to withstand rigorous and lengthy engine operation without
chemical breakdown. Recognizing that these same lubricant characteristics
would benefit automotive and other reciprocating
engines, Al Amatuzio formulated the world’s first synthetic motor oil to
meet American Petroleum Institute (API) service requirements for
automobiles. The new lubricant performed like no other before it. When the
first can of AMSOIL Synthetic 10W-40 Motor Oil appeared on the market in
1972, it signaled the birth of an industry. During the past 30 years,
AMSOIL synthetic lubricants have expanded the boundaries of lubrication
science and redefined the performance possibilities of engines, equipment
and machinery in automotive, commercial and industrial use. Why are AMSOIL
synthetic lubricants the best lubricants available? Take a look.
lubricants are synthesized, not refined. Refining doesn’t remove
critical impurities, and the lubrication and performance qualities of
refined petroleum lubricants are limited. AMSOIL lubricants are
impurity-free and offer superior performance and greater versatility.
PROTECTION AND PERFORMANCE
synthetic lubricants are much more stable in high temperatures than
refined oils are. Their superior heat stability reduces the rates of oil
consumption, lubricant breakdown and lubricant oxidation, which keeps oil
consumption low; equipment clean, protected and running right; and extends
PROTECTION AND PERFORMANCE
synthetic lubricants remain fluid in temperatures far below zero, allowing
dependableengine start-up, fast lubrication, dependable protection and
maximum fuel economy in severe cold operations.
synthetic lubricants are superior to refined oils in reducing friction,
helping lubricated systems use fuel energy for work, not for overcoming
drag. Superior friction reduction, as well as lower volatility rates, also
helps keep exhaust emissions low.
ENGINE AND EQUIPMENT LIFE
synthetic lubricants’ heat stability and friction- reducing ability keep
wear rates low, which helps increase the time to first teardown, increases
the interval between teardowns and increases overall equipment life.
LUBRICANT DRAIN INTERVALS
synthetic lubricants offer eight times the service life offered by refined
lubricants, and sometimes even more. The long life of AMSOIL synthetic
lubricants reduces costs, downtime, waste and environmental damage.
manufactures synthetic lubricants, advanced filtration systems, fuel

synthetic lubricants are manufactured from top-quality synthetic
basestocks and performance additives according to a stringent quality
control protocol in computer-controlled AMSOIL manufacturing facilities.
AMSOIL synthetic lubricants may be counted on to deliver the same top
quality performance and protection every time they are used, no matter
where in the world they are purchased.
