Benefit – A cleaner, longer lasting engine
SUSTINA motor oil is designed to provide long lasting, detergent cleaning power. SUSTINA utilizes the sulfur-free characteristics of ZP, a proprietary additive chemistry that reduces the formation of sulfuric acid, keeping your engine cleaner and running longer.
ZP Technology – Sulfur free additive component
Most engine oil today contains detergent additives to clean your engine as well as “Zinc”, or actually Zinc DialkylDithiophosphates (ZDDP/ZDTP) to provide antiwear performance.
To prevent grime attaching to engine parts, the detergent additive encapsulates dirt and grime, holding it in suspension away from critical engine parts.
Typical ZDDP additive prevents metal-to-metal contact in the engine by forming a protective layer over the surface. The antiwear additive also contains sulfur, which can form harmful acids when exposed to heat, water, and oxygen.
These acids will begin to attack and breakdown detergent additives in the oil. Once the detergent additives are depleted, the engine oil can no longer hold dirt & soot in suspension, allowing these contaminants to build up on engine components. Sustina is made using ZP technology, a revolutionary new antiwear additive chemistry that does not contain sulfur. The lack of sulfur and acidic byproducts prevents oil degradation and achieves superior protection while keeping your engine clean.
