This presentation will begin with a discussion of how engine oils are formulated from base oils and several types of additives. Relevant engine oil specifications (ILSAC, API and dexos), including engine and bench tests, to which these formulations will be qualified, will then be covered. Each of the tests will in turn be reviewed as to their appetite for additives and/or base oils. There will also be discussion of expected future needs, and how these will likely impact engine oil formulation.
Don Smolenski has a BS in Chemistry from the University of Michigan-Dearborn and a PhD in Chemical Engineering from Wayne State University. He is currently the OEM Liaison Manager – North America for Evonik Oil Additives, after retiring after 33 years with General Motors.
