Technical innovation & business foresight are part of every successful business venture.
As a USAF jet fighter pilot and squadron commander, Lieutenant Colonel Albert J. Amatuzio witnessed the use of synthetic lubricants in jet engines.
Synthetics are a must-use in every jet engine in the world.
Synthetic oils have three extraordinary characteristics: they significantly reduce engine friction and wear; function reliably at severe temperature extremes; and withstand lengthy & rigorous operation without breakdown.
Al Amatuzio believed the outstanding characteristics of synthetic lubricants would prove invaluable in car, truck, and other internal combustion engines.
Serious research began in 1963. The true milestone came in 1972 when AMSOIL became the first synthetic motor oil in the world to meet American Petroleum Institute (API) criteria.
Motor oil quality and performance standards made a quantum leap. The new, jet-age lubricant performed like no other before it. The AMSOIL synthetic engine oil had a recommended drain interval of 25,000 miles or one year!
A New Industry
When the first can of AMSOIL appeared on the market in 1972, it signaled the birth of an entire industry. AMSOIL synthetic lubricants have expanded the boundaries of lubrication science, and performance possibilities of modern machinery and engines has been redefined.
Hall of Fame
In 1994 Al Amatuzio was honored as the pioneer of synthetic lubrication with his induction into the Lubricants World Hall of Fame.
AMSOIL continues as the leader in automotive synthetic engine oil. AMSOIL specializes in synthetic lubricants and produces a wide array of synthetics for consumer, commercial and industrial applications.
