What are Synthetic Lubricants? Synthetic lubricants are seen as being more advantageous compared to the basic mineral lubricants due to the high temperatures it can work in and its greater chemical properties. They are essential for use in jet engines, making them very popular in the aerospace industry. There are many positives from using a synthetically made oil, including the increased stability from the controlled chemical properties that production is tailored to. As well as this, other side effects include greater oil efficiency, fuel economy, and the low level temperatures that the products can work under.
At Sil-Mid Limited, we carry a range of synthetic oils from worldwide suppliers including Aeroshell, BP and Fuchs. Although each oil comes with its own properties, many benefit from higher oxidation thresholds, resistance to water, and corrosion inhibitive properties.
