Afton Chemical Wins “Excellent Technical Paper Award” at JSAE Annual Congress
Afton Chemical presented the topic on the possibility of the low viscosity in motorcycle oil as titled "Development of Fuel-Efficient Engine Oil Concept for Motorcycle Application Maintaining Hardware Protection and Wet-Clutch Performance" in JSAE Fall Annual Congress 2022, which was held in Osaka, Japan.
In the presentation, Afton Chemical demonstrated the performance of their state-of-art engine oil additive formulation for motorcycle applications that satisfies the current JASO standards with improved fuel efficiency. The technology delivered 1.7% to 4% fuel economy gain in World Motorcycle Test Cycle (WMTC) emission test compared with major viscosity grade motorcycle oils such as 10W-30 or 10W-40.
These results prove that our innovative technology is capable of balancing fuel economy and wet clutch performance, an essential performance factor in motorcycle applications. The technology we provide to help improve fuel efficiency will also support reduced C02 emissions to the environment.
