What is synthetic oil?

By 2021-04-13July 25th, 2021Glossary

Synthetic oils – unlike mineral oils, these oils are produced by chemical synthesis. Synthetic oils typically have good viscosity-temperature dependence, weak oxidation tendency, low freezing point, high-temperature stability, and good resistance to chemical agents.

Synthetic base oils are oil-like synthetic liquids (polymers or oligomers) obtained by synthesis from different monomers.
