Insight into Viscosity, Engine Oil and our Worldwide Team

This week, Techenomics explains the importance of Viscosity, what happens when oil is heated and cooled, an introductory into Viscosity Index (VI), how viscosity is tested and possible causes of fluctuating or increased/ decreased viscosity results. Another top story is how to choose the correct engine oil for your vehicle. We explain API, ILSAC and…

Oil Viscosity and it’s importance

An important quality of a lubricant is its Viscosity. Viscosity is a measurement of the internal cohesiveness of an oil, better known as its resistance to flow. Viscosity is defined as being equal to shear stress/ shear rate. High Viscosity oils have molecules with greater cohesion ability (Higher resistance to flow) were as low viscosity…
