Automotive lubricants are designed for high-performance vehicles and equipment in Lincolnton.
Automotive lubricants have become an important feature for today’s vehicles and equipment because of the advancements in engine technology. The API (American Petroleum Institute) certifies lubricants through a rigorous program to ensure that they meet the quality and performance standards of original equipment manufacturers (OEM).
Automotive lubricants play two important roles in the function and efficiency of engines of all shapes and sizes: firstly by controlling wear and friction, and secondly by regulating engine temperature.
Designed to deliver clean lubricant to every component in an engine, automotive lubricants pull oil from the oil pan (sump) into the pump, which then forces the automotive lubricant through the oil filter into the oil gallery ways and main bearings. Lubricant then passes through the crankshaft, which lubricates other parts of the engine as it rotates.
As this process is repeated, automotive lubricants create a boundary to reduce and prevent metal-on-metal contact between engine parts, as well as absorb heat caused by friction and carry it away from the engine components, where it dissipates in the sump or cooler at the end of its cycle.
