ARX Natural Esters Versus Synthetic Esters

The synthetic esters likely employed in current oil are likely the base of your finished synthetic oil product. A synthetic ester based oil refers to making molecules that are already the desired weight and viscosity, without the help of viscosity index improvers, usually polymers. These ester are ideally created so that they are very stable, and not self contaminating like a conventional group II oil is. These esters are very resistant to exposure to heat and shearing when compared to conventional oils. The combination of molecules of the base oil being already in the correct viscosity and very stable, give full synthetic motor oils the ability for long oil change intervals. Auto-Rx on the other hand converts naturally occurring fatty acids into esters, geared toward detergency, not necessarily geared towards a being a stable base oil. Auto-Rx is not a finished motor oil product. There are 3 different ester groups found in Auto-Rx.
