Future Motor oils


Fredericksburg, VA
It might be over many people's heads and of little interest, buster. I want to learn more about polymer esters. Motul is the only motor oil maker I know of that says they use them in some of their oils (300V). Here are some search results on polymer esters: 1. Extensive info. in this book sold by Google Books: http://books.google.com/books?id=vkYCvwx...result&resnum=8 2. http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/journal/112468708/abstract?CRETRY=1&SRETRY=0 Polymer esters and their synergy with ZDDP - the possibility of reducing ZDDP content in lubricants U. Wallfahrer AKZO Chemicals GmbH, Düren, Federal Republic of Germany Abstract In recent years, environmental awareness and legislation have enforced ever greater controls on the emissions of motor vehicles. To meet those requirements, the increased use of exhaust port catalysts is almost inevitable. However, there are concerns that lubricant-derived phosphorus compounds could in the long term be detrimental to those catalysts and make it necessary to reduce the W D P level in the lubricating oils. Laboratory bench tests and engine rig tests show that a significant reduction of the level of ZDDP may be possible in the presence of a special class of polymer esters without reducing the wear performance of the engine oils. 3. http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/journal/112468624/abstract High viscosity polymer esters as an alternative to PAO 100 U. Wallfahrer Akzo Nobel, Düren, Germany Abstract High viscosity polymer esters were studied as an alternative to PAO 100. High viscosity polyalphaolefins have the disadvantage of poor compatibility with additives. High viscosity polymer esters have now been developed which are compatible with polar and non-polar elements. The properties of the base oils were tested, as were trial formulations of automotive gear oil and industrial gear oil.
