In the recent years, the South Korean automotive engine oils market has grown significantly.
Automotive engine oil is the gasoline used to keep the vehicle's components lubricated. It helps with the oil in a car engine forming a lubricating film on all metallic components, allowing them to move comfortably over one another and thus reducing friction. Engine oil also removes small particles of dust and dirt, as well as other contaminants found in vehicle fuels. Moreover, it preserves the gap between both the engine and the cylinder walls, resulting in stronger fuel combustion. It also polishes all of the working components of an electrical motor to provide rust protection. The prevention of oxidation and rusting in automobile metallic materials. The viscosity index of lubricating oil generally decreases as it is used for a longer period. For the motor oil to maintain the layer on the surface between both engine components over long distances, viscosity loss should be avoided. Semi-synthetic, fully-synthetic, and mineral oil are the three types of automotive engine oil. Semi-synthetic oil is a mineral oil mixed with synthetic oils to improve engine efficiency.
