  • Gasoline Engines
  • Passenger Carss
  • SUV's
  • Light Duty Trucks
ALPHA SYN 5W30 is a premium quality SL/SJ engine oil designed for all-weather operation of passenger cars and light duty trucks.
ALPHA SYN 5W30 is a blend of the highest quality base oils and selected additives. It is compounded with Frontier’s exclusive ETX extender additive package and has a much higher viscosity index (VI) than conventional oils. This exclusive formulation provides excellent protection against deposits resulting from long term high temperature operation.
ALPHA SYN 5W30 anti-wear additives minimize wear and scuffing of metal surfaces under boundary lubrication conditions. The detergent-dispersant additives protect against sludge formation and varnish deposits. The anti-oxidant additive provides excellent resistance to oxidation during the higher under hood temperatures common in the high revving, high performance engines manufactured since 2001. Rust and corrosion additives protect metal parts during engine operation and shut down.
ALPHA SYN 5W30 provides protection against acid buildup and allows longer oil change intervals than conventional engine oils.
PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS:

Alpha Syn 5w/30 anti-wear additives minimize wear and scuffing of metal surfaces under boundary lubrication conditions.  The detergent-dispersant additives protect against sludge formation and varnish deposits.  The anti-oxidant additive provides excellent resistance to oxidation during the higher under hood temperatures common in the high revving, high performance engines manufactured today. Rust and corrosion additives protect metal parts during engine operation and shut down.

Alpha Syn 5w/30 contains a unique acid neutralizing additive package that protects against the formation of acidic compounds.  These selected alkaline additives give a much longer lasting TBN than regular engine oils.  This higher, long lasting TBN provides protection against acid buildup and allows longer oil change intervals than conventional engine oils. 

SUMMARY:

Alpha Syn 5w/30 Engine Oil provides the following advantages:

  • Meets or exceeds the performance requirements of current and proposed engine oil specifications
  • Protects low-emission engines from wear and deposits
  • Resists soot-related viscosity increase
  • Extends engine life while meeting emissions requirements
  • Improves engine durability, keeping equipment in as new condition
  • Allows extended oil drain intervals
  • Has excellent low temperature performance

PERFORMANCE CAPABILITIES:

API Service Categories:

  • SM
  • ENERGY CONSERVING (SAE 5W-30)
  • ILSAC
  • GF-4 (5W-30)

Oils meeting API SM may be used where API Service Category SL and earlier categories are recommended. 

MANUFACTURER’S PERFORMANCE REQUIREMENTS:

Meets API SM and ILSAC GF-4 specifications and meets or exceeds all US automaker warranty requirements where an API SM category engine oil is required.

SM – Gasoline Engine Service Category SM is for use in service typical of gasoline engines in present and earlier passenger cars, sport utility vehicles, vans and light trucks operating under vehicle manufacturer’s recommended maintenance procedures. Oils meeting API SM may be used where API Service Category SL and earlier categories are recommended.
