In April of 2013, The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) introduced SAE 16 -- a new, low viscosity grade specification in revisions made to the J300 Engine Oil Classification. Find out what this means for the GF-6 specification and additive product development.

The relentless drive to improve engine efficiency and performance has led to the development of small turbocharged, gasoline direct injection (TGDI) engines. As governmental regulations on emissions and fuel efficiency become increasingly more stringent worldwide, original...

The ILSAC GF-6 Needs Statement forms the basis of new performances requirements and drives lubricant test development.

The proposed ILSAC GF-6 specification acknowledges that GF-5 era tests simply won’t measure up to the demands placed on modern lubricants. As a result, ILSAC GF-6 will include six new engine tests.
