SS 10W-40 Semi-Synthetic passenger car engine oil

TC-Lube SS 10W-40 is manufacturered from high quality base fluids and a carefully balanced additive system. The grade is suitable for use in petrol and diesel engines fitted to passenger car and light commercial vehicles. TC-Lube SS 10W-40 provides a high level of engine cleanliness and controls high temperature deposits, especially in turbocharged applications. This grade will protect critical components, such as camshafts, valve gear and bearings from wear and ensures overall protection from rust and rossosion. Provides excellent cold starting characteristics and increased engine efficiency.

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.
