LUBRICANT RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT



Amtecol invests more than 10% of revenues in research, development and testing. Coupled with our Quality Control, this assures that our products meet API, ACEA, JASO, and most OEM requirements.

We use base oils and additives from leading suppliers to manufacture synthetic, conventional and blended automotive and industrial lubricants. These include passenger car motor oil, automatic transmission fluid, heavy duty engine oil, marine engine oil, gear oil, coolant, hydraulic oil, compressor oil, turbine oil, metal cutting fluids, industrial gear oil, transformer oil, and other lubricant products.

Amtecol’s fully equipped technical laboratory allows us to develop and control the quality of our Super Life® and Duralife® products, custom formulations, and contract manufacturing partners’ products. Our close working relationships with our base oil and additive suppliers keep us updated on market trends and provide us with the latest technologies to give our products competitive advantages.

We also utilize our lab facilities to test your used oil to extend engine life, improve vehicle reliability, and optimize oil change intervals.
