Premium Engine Oils for Diesel and Gasoline Engines
The technology exists to build high-performance engine oils that can withstand conditions and rigors for diesel trucks, passenger cars, light duty trucks and stationary engines. Typically, engine oils are made up of 70 to 90 percent base oil and 10 to 30 percent additives. Lubrication Engineers uses premium quality base oil and best-inclass additive technology to formulate engine oils that maintain their viscosity, keep engine wear to a minimum, and help ensure dependability. LE engine oils are formulated to meet the needs of our industrial customers and in most cases easily exceed the Automotive Performance Institute (API) specifications for performance.
At Lubrication Engineers, we know that non-synthetic lubricants aren't always the best lubricants for the job. In applications with extremely high or extremely low temperatures or very heavy loads, synthetic lubricants may overcome the challenges better than non-synthetic lubricants. For example, a synthetic gear oil would provide exceptional protection in heavily loaded gearboxes exposed to high and low temperature extremes. Another example is a synthetic engine oil or synthetic motor oil, which would provide better viscosity stability in extreme temperature conditions.
The performance advantages offered by synthetic oils and synthetic greases vary by product, but they include improved thermal stability, improved oxidation resistance, a high viscosity index, improved lowtemperature properties, lower evaporation losses, reduced flammability and a lower tendency to form residues.
LE's synthetic oil and synthetic grease varieties contain special additives that further enhance their performance. Depending on the particular lubricant and what LE formulated it to do, these additives include one or more of the following:
- Monolec® - LE's exclusive wear-reducing additive creates a single molecular lubricating film on metal surfaces, vastly increasing oil film strength without affecting clearances. Monolec® allows opposing surfaces to slide by one another, greatly reducing friction, heat and wear.
- Almasol® - LE's exclusive solid wear-reducing additive is able to withstand extremely heavy loads, chemical attack and extremely high temperatures. It is attracted to metal surfaces, forming a microscopic layer without building on itself or affecting clearances. Almasol® minimizes metal-to-metal contact and the resulting friction, heat and wear.
- Quinplex® - LE's exclusive impact-resistant additive helps to form a barrier against corrosion and enables outstanding water resistance, tackiness and enhanced mechanical stability.
