So What's In This Stuff Anyways?
All You Really Need to Know About Motor Oil Additives

It has been a long long time since motor oil was just oil. In the 1930s someone decided to begin putting wax modifier in the oil to address the problem of wax residue after the refining process. Thus was born the motor oil additive market.

Today, motor oils contain a variety of ingredients designed to improve the performance capabilities of motor oil, whether petroleum or synthetic. This article is an overview of the various oil additives used in automobile engines and drivetrains.

Additives Job Descriptions
In this article we are referring to additives that are formulated into the motor oil, not the chemistries being packaged and sold as aftermarket oil additives on the shelves of auto parts stores.

Motor oil additives have three essential functions: to protect metal surfaces, to expand the lubricants application range, and to extend lubricant life. Additional considerations for additive selection include ease with which they can be handled by formulators, stability in storage, toxicity, and their smell. Yes, smell is a serious consideration.

Surface Protection Additives
In automobile motor oils there are five kinds of problems that additives address with regard to surfaces. First, there are antiwear agents. These would include various phosphates, organic sulfur and chlorine compounds, sulfurized fats, sulfides and disulfides. These various compounds reduce friction and wear, and help prevent scoring or seizure. Through chemical processes they help prevent metal-to-metal contact.

Corrosion and rust inhibitors like zinc dithiophosphates (a multi-purpose additive), metal phenolates, fatty acids and amines are used to prevent corrosion and rust on the internal metal parts of the engine.

Detergents keep surfaces free of deposits. By use of metallo-organic compounds of sodium, calcium and magnesium phenolates, phosphonates and sulfanates varnishes and sludge are neutralized and maintained in a soluble state.

Dispersants, such as alkylsuccinimides, alkylsuccinic esters and mannich reaction products, keep insoluble contaminants dispersed in the lubricant. Contaminants are bonded by polar attraction to dispersant molecules, preventing them from agglomerating.

Friction modifiers alter an oils coefficient of friction. Typical friction modifiers include organic fatty acids and amides, high molecular weight organic phosphorus and phosphoric acid esters.

Performance Additives
A second class of additives includes those compounds that improve the oils performance. Pour point depressants, which are not required in high quality synthetics due to their low temperature capabilities, enable lubricants to flow at lower temperatures by modifying wax crystal formation, thereby reducing interlocking. The compounds used for this function include alkylated napthalene and phenolic polymers, polymethacrylates, and certain copolymer esters.

Seal swell agents help to swell elastomeric seals by causing a chemical reaction in the elastomer. Organic phosphates and aromatic hydrocarbons are sometimes used to achieve this effect.

Viscosity modifiers help reduce the rate of viscosity change when temperatures rise or drop. Polymers and copolymers of olefins tend to expand as the temperature rises, counteracting against the tendency of oil to thin. Other compounds used for this function include methacrylates, dienes and alkylated styrenes.

Protective Additives
There are also three types of protective additives. Antifoamants reduce surface tension and speed the collapse of foam. Foam is an enemy of effective lubrication. Wherever air can get into an active fluid system it has a tendency to get trapped or swirled in, with billowing or foaming the end result. Without defoamers, you would have foam gurgling out of the dipstick when customers came in for an oil change. To fight foam oil formulators add silicone polymers or organic copolymers.

Antioxidants slow down the rate of oxidation by decomposing peroxides and terminating free-radical reactions. Zinc dithiophosphates, hindered phenols, aromatic amines and sulfurized phenols are used to this end.

Metal deactivators are used to reduce catalytic effect of metals on the oxidation rate. In other words, without organic complexes containing nitrogen or sulfur, amines, sulfides and phosphites, the rate of oxidation would speed along unchecked. These compounds form form an inactive film on metal surfaces by complexing with metallic ions.

Whats Goin On?
In short, motor oil has a lot of stuff in it these days. It is not a haphazard concoction of chemicals just thrown together. As you can see, many of the compounds in motor oil are designed to interact with what is going on inside an engine. But many compounds are selected so that they will not interfere with their designated functions. That is to say, formulators are chemists who must carefully consider the way these various chemistries interact with each other, not just the context they individually work in.

One example is the battle between corrosion inhibitors and antiwear additives. Sometimes these additives battle for sites on a metal surface. If you use too much corrosion and rust inhibitor the antiwear properties of an oil can be diminished.

It is important to realize that additive chemistries can themselves have disadvantages as well as advantages. The usage of various additives involves tradeoffs. Here are just some examples of negative side effects additive may possess.

  • Detergents and anti-wear additives can promote deposit formation in high temperature areas.
  • Detergents and dispersants can promote foaming and minimize the effectiveness of anti-foaming additives.
  • Certain additives can cause corrosion when exposed to high temperature.
  • Too much anti-foaming additive will in itself result in foaming.

Conclusions
Today's additive systems are quite sophisticated. Because they can be sensitive and negatively affected by the addition of other chemicals some experts feel that lubricants of different brands or types should never be mixed. Nevertheless, motor oils are considered compatible with each other in todays market.

The rule of thumb here is that if an application does not require an additive do not use it. This holds true especially for aftermarket additives. Motor oil formulators go to great lengths to build balanced systems that meet pre-designed targets. Not only the choice of chemistries, but the concentration at which an additive is used will have a major impact both on how well a lubricant performs a task and on its cost.

AMSOIL INC. uses only the highest quality additives and thoroughly understands how each interact. Not only are the specific basestocks selected for their ability to provide extended drain intervals, but the additive package plays a vital role in a lubricants performance as well. As car manufacturers demand longer motor oil drain intervals, these aspects of lubricant performance will become increasingly important to all motor oil manufacturers

 

AMSOIL is the undisputed leader in synthetics......

 

Since 1972, AMSOIL Synthetics have proven to be the BEST. AMSOIL also engineers and manufactures Super Duty Oil filters which have a 25,000 mile service life as well as specialized filtration systems for commercial and fleet applications in cars and light, medium and heavy trucks which can filter particles down to less than one micron (a standard full flow oil filter can only filter to 20-25 microns with any degree of efficiency) making oil changes virtually unnecessary and virtually eliminating engine wear. These filters have been proven by millions of miles of over-the road trucks, construction equipment and fleet service.

         AMSOIL saves you time and money.

         The only 25,000 mile/one- year and 35,000/one- year motor oil in the world.

         Exceeds the most stringent performance specifications of all major U.S. and foreign automotive and truck manufacturers.

         Provides up to two-times the wear protection of other motor oils.

         Increases the life of your vehicle.

         Improves performance, fuel economy and efficiency.

         Diesel oil and filtration products designed to deliver 1,000,000 miles for over-the-road trucks before engine overhaul.
