Not all base oils have similar physical or chemical properties or provide equivalent engine oil performance in engine testing. During engine oil manufacture, marketers and blenders have legitimate needs for flexibility in base oil usage. The API Base Oil Interchangeability Guidelines (BOI) were developed to ensure that the performance of engine oil products is not adversely affected when different base oils are used interchangeably by engine oil blenders. The same goes for Viscosity Grade Read Across Guidelines (VGRA). In certain situations, data generated from one viscosity grade of a given engine oil formulation may be extrapolated to another viscosity grade that uses the same additive technology.

In this webinar, we are going to share with us how BOI and VGRA guidelines are being interpreted to ensure minimum acceptable level of testing that every marketer must perform as a condition for obtaining an API license

Registration closes on October 14 at 5 PM SGT.
