3)These Lubricants are chemically engineered and manufactured with “pure” components to eliminate “sludge”, which is a commonly occurring problem in refined petroleum lubricants. Sludge is caused by paraffin's and sulfur that are naturally found in petroleum, and absent in synthetics
polyalkyl methacrylate. This additive allows Automatic transmission and motorcycle transmission lubricants that are made of highly refined petroleum oil to operate like synthetic lubricants, with reduced wear to their high heat and friction components (i.e. clutch plates and pressure plates). This additive increases the lubricants shear force stability in addition to allowing the lubricant to maintain a consistent viscosity through a wider range of temperatures, as compared to conventional petroleum oils. Cousins of ViscoPlex 12-115 are compatible with synthetic lubricants.
