What is Synthetic Motor Oil?

What is Synthetic Motor Oil?

Synthetic motor oil was designed to be a more cost-effective lubricant for engines that would reduce the amount of friction caused by shifting loads during driving. Thus, it was hoped that by using synthetic oils, the engine will have a longer and more reliable life span, not to mention a lower fuel economy. This, in turn, will benefit the consumer as well as the environment. There are two main properties that make up synthetic oil, the molecular size and the level of porosity. With the molecular size, this type of lubricant has a larger number of surface structures or crystallites. These crystallites are made of multiple molecules, or atoms, which are much too small to be seen by the naked eye. They are bonded together with molecular bonds that are strong enough to withstand the stresses that an engine is exposed to on a regular basis. In this way, friction is prevented and the engine lasts longer. The lower molecular weight ensures a steady supply of fuel throughout the life of the ... read more
