The new Molygen New Generation oils by LIQUI MOLY have changed colors from the traditional brown to a glowing green. The company says the green color signals an especially strong protection that reduces friction in the motor by up to 15 percent and wear by up to 30 percent.
This protection is provided by so-called friction modifiers, more precisely an entire system of these friction modifiers that are based on wolfram, among others. Friction modifiers are chemical ingredients that smooth the metal surfaces in the motor and even out microscopically small bumps. The reduces friction in the motor and therefore also fuel consumption. They also protect against wear. Compared to conventional motor oil of the same quality, they can help to reduce wear by up to 30 percent.
The company says this is particularly important in urban traffic with its many start-stop phases. When the motor stops at the lights, the lubrication also stops. This means there is a risk of increased wear at the next start. In this situation, the extra protection by Molygen pays off, according to the company. This protection increases the service life of the motor and reduces the risk of breakdowns and repairs.
The Molygen product line comprises five glowing green motor oils that are available in the viscosities 5W-20, 5W-30, 10W-30, 10W-40, and 5W-40. Plus, with the Molygen Motor Protect there is also a wear protection additive that offers additional protection for the motor.
