Viscositeit van motorolie

2020-07-10

Laten we het hebben over de "viscositeit" die de belangrijkste indicator is vanmotorolie​Een van de meest voorkomende indicatoren vanmotorolie viscosityis de SAE-waarde vanmotorolie. What do you usually hear about OW-20 and 5W-30, right? There are five common numbers in front of W, which are 0, 5, 10, 20, and 25. The smaller the number, the lower the applicable ambient temperature. There are also 5 common numbers behind W, which represent the highest temperature applicable to the motorolie, which are 20, 30, 40, 50, and 60, which represent the viscosity of the motorolie. This is also the case in motorcycle oil. Most of the motorolie used by European and American motorcycles such as BMW is 5W-40, 15W-50, Harley 20W-50, KTM 10W-50, and Ducati 15W-50. The motoroliesgebruikt door Honda en Kawasaki zijn 0W-30 of 10W-40. Daarom is te zien dat Europese en Amerikaanse autofabrikanten meer aandacht besteden aan voertuigprestaties, waardoor de viscositeit van de designolie iets hoger is.
