ROLF Lubricants has been producing state-of-the-art lubricants for many years. ROLF motor oils belong to the premium line of motor oils. The Rolf Lubricants brand, registered in Germany, manufactures motor oils and car chemicals in the city of Obninsk, Kaluga Region.
The main objectives of the manufacturer are product quality and innovation. Every ROLF oil has these properties. The principle of ROLF is «quality without compromise». This principle allows us to meet the requirements of the world’s leading manufacturers of automotive oils and achieve the highest efficiency in engine operation.
For the correct selection of engine oil, it is enough to know the main characteristics of the car: brand, model, engine type. The online catalog on the official website of the manufacturer will help you choose the best option for each engine.
Motor oils are divided into 3 types:
Mineral motor oil is a product of low-quality crude oil processing with a minimum amount of additives. A distinctive feature of this oil is that it is not very well suited for operation with significant temperature changes and can freeze in the engine in severe frost. Mineral oil begins to oxidize rapidly, loses viscosity and lubricity. That is, this type of oil is recommended for stable warm climates and undemanding engines. Therefore, mineral motor oils are the cheapest to buy. However, their service life is much shorter than that of synthetic and semi-synthetic ones.
Synthetic motor oil is obtained from the distillation of petroleum, the high-quality base component of which is molecularly processed. Already at the production stage, the basic properties are set for the product, which are preserved throughout the entire service life. Fully synthetic motor oils are superior in physical and chemical properties to mineral and semi-synthetic products. As a rule, synthetic oil has a number of useful qualities:
does not form deposits on the engine walls;
has the greatest fluidity;
has a high viscosity index;
has low volatility;
provides wear resistance of parts at low temperatures;
provides maximum engine protection even under extreme conditions.
Therefore, synthetic oils are more expensive. However, the increased cost is compensated by the increased service life.
So synthetic oils in the ROLF product line include:
ROLF GT SAE 5W-30 API SN/CF
ROLF GT SAE 5W-30 API SL/CF ACEA A3/B4
ROLF GT SAE 5W-40 API SN/CF
Premium fully synthetic engine oil ROLF with a combination of high quality base stocks with the latest additive technologies provides fast and easy engine starts at the lowest temperatures, excellent engine protection against wear and extended drain intervals. Prevents the formation of deposits in the oil system, ensures engine cleanliness.
A number of cars initially can only run on pure synthetics. These are cars with engines for energy-saving oils with a viscosity of the SAE 0W-20 type, and diesel engines with DPF (diesel particulate filters).
Semi-synthetic engine oil is a mixture of mineral and synthetic bases with the addition of an effective additive package. The properties of semi-synthetics depend on the mixing ratio and on the additive package used. When using such oils, it should be borne in mind that the mineral component is more sensitive to temperature conditions in comparison with synthetic oils. Modern semi-synthetic oils are excellent for all-weather use, and their level of protective properties is sufficient for most gasoline and diesel engines.
Semi-synthetic oils in the ROLF product line:
- ROLF ENERGY SAE 10W-40 API SL/CF
- ROLF DYNAMIC SAE 10W-40 API SL/CF
ROLF semi-synthetic engine oil:
- prevents the formation of soot, varnish deposits and sludge;
- ensures the stability of viscosity-temperature characteristics throughout the entire period of operation;
- protects the engine during the entire service life of the oil;
- suitable for all-weather use in the central part of Russia.
All ROLF Lubricants products meet the requirements of the world’s leading automotive manufacturers. This way you can be sure that your vehicle is ready for maximum performance in all driving conditions.
