Synplus 10W/50 SN is a fully synthetic, low SAPS, super high-performance engine oil which combines the latest development in oil formulation and additive technology to provide a lubricating oil with the highest level of protection.
Synplus 10W/50 SN is made using full synthetic base oils and specially selected additive systems; producing a low SAPS, high-performance engine oil that combines the latest development in oil formulation and additive technology to provide a lubricating oil with the highest level of protection.
Synplus 10W/50 SN is suitable for most types of four-stroke petrol engines operating under moderate, severe, or varied operating conditions, such as low-temperature start-up, stop and- go driving, and high-temperature motorway driving.
Today’s environmentally conscious market demands reduced emissions and increased fuel efficiency. This has led to the development of new engine designs resulting in demands for higher quality lubricants.
In recent years car manufacturers have developed smaller, higher output engines to meet stricter fuel economy limits. Small engines help decrease vehicle weight and improve the economy but these engines impact lubricants through:
- Increased heat which accelerates the rate of oil oxidation, nitration and deposit formation. This degrades the oil and encourages the creation of more acid and increases viscosity.
- Increased pressure and speed which makes it harder for the oil to maintain a lubricant film to prevent metal on metal contact. This accelerates valve train wear.
- Emission Control. Most of today’s petrol engines are fitted with catalytic converters which reduce emissions of CO, NOx and unburned carbon. Catalytic converters, however, are susceptible to SAPS (Sulfated Ash, Phosphorous and Sulfur) which are present in engine oil detergents and antiwear additives and in base oils.
Synplus 10W/50 SN is designed to meet these challenges to the vehicle’s lubricant system.
