The highest performance standards for passenger car and heavy-duty engine oils can be met using synthetic base stocks such as:

These chemically derived synthetic base stocks offer numerous advantages over mineral oil base stocks, including:

  • Better oxidative and thermal stability for long service life  
  • Better volatility for reduced engine oil emissions  
  • No inherent contaminants to accelerate corrosion or acid formation  
  • Higher saturates level for greater soot-handling capabilities  
  • Lower pour points for improved operational low temperatures
