API - American Petroleum Institute - Minimum performance standards for lubricants.

ACEA - Performance and quality classifications in Europe.

Kinematic Viscosity - Measure of the resistance of a fluid which is being deformed by either shear or tensile stress.

Viscosity Index - Arbitrary measure for the change of viscosity with temperature.

Flash Point - Lowest temperature at which a material can vaporise to form an ignitable mixture in the air.

Pour Point - Lowest temperature in which motor engine oil can flow.

TBN - Total Base Number - An indicator for the measure of a lubricant's reserve alkalinity. Measured in milligrams of potassium hydroxide per gram (mg KOH/g).

Sulphated Ash - Indicates the concentration of know metal-containing additives in oil.
