Newest Specification.
Bardahl Indonesia Introduces New Gasoline Engine Oil Specification, ILSAC GF-6 And API SP
API’s Lubricants Standards Group approved by letter ballot the adoption of new ILSAC specifications, GF-6A and a new API Service Category, API SP.

The new ILSAC specifications represent the latest performance requirements for gasoline engine oils set by the International Lubricant Specification Advisory Committee (ILSAC), and API Service SP the newest API gasoline engine oil standard.

The new specification specify more stringent engine oil performance requirements for spark-ignited internal combustion engines. The three include seven new tests, including a chain wear test and a new test for very low-viscosity engine oils. The standards also include a test designed to protect against a phenomenon experienced by some gasoline engines known low speed pre-ignition (LSPI).

The Polar Plus Formula.
The Bardahl commitment to innovative technology through research was founded from the very beginning with its first oil additive that used a unique formulation to reduce friction. The technology was further developed with a Polar Attraction Formula that improved the anti-wear, anti-friction, and extreme pressure properties of motor oils.

Bardahl continues to develop innovative products and recently designed “ultra-concentrated” formulations that include smaller volumes of chemical solutions yet perform at higher levels of effectiveness for less cost.

Scientific research and the chemists in Bardahl’s in house laboratories constantly improve and update Bardahl formulas, keeping the products one step ahead of the competition. For decades it has always been Bardahl’s goal to maintain technological advances in the field of additives and specialty lubricants.
No-Oil Run Test.

Bardahl is often tested in everyday use. The most challenging and hardest on engines is the demanding No-Oil Run. This test consists of adding Bardahl to an engine, letting it run for only a few minutes, draining the oil out of the engine completely and then driving more than 200 miles (350 km).

At the end of the test, the engine is completely disassembled and inspected for wear and tear. Bardahl’s proven technology protects engines even under these extreme conditions.

Completed in several countries including America, Malaysia, Argentina and most recently Italy in a large 18-wheel truck, this test proves Bardahl’s long lasting protection of the most critical metal components found in an engine.

In 1999, Bardahl decided to challenge the previous No-Oil Run record it had held for years. Bardahl partnered the Malaysian distributor, Cycle & Carriage and organized the longest NO-OIL Run in Bardahl history.

Same method was used as in the previous runs, and in 1999, a new record was made in Malaysia – A total of 1,330 km journey was completed by two cars running without engine oils – only treated with Bardahl B1 Oil Treatment – and without overheating or engine burnt.

C60 & Fullerene.
Fullerene is the third known form of stable carbon, besides diamond and graphite. BARDAHL is the first company in the world to apply the fullerene chemistry to the sector of lubricants, thus exploiting the fact that the fullerene spheres work like real micro-ball bearings, non-deformable and extremely stable: they interpose between contacting surfaces and reduce friction in their movement.
Triple Protection For The Engine

  1. First protection level attained by the BARDAHL lubricating film.
  2. Second protection level by the Polar formula.
  3. Third protection level achieved through the fullerene molecules.

Bardahl scientists successfully eliminated the problem of unprotected metal surface by carefully formulating a special additive known as Polar Attraction. It fastens to metal and stays in place because the basic molecule used is a large one with a polar end group. Polar Attraction chemistry remains a protective plated film over metal surfaces during high temperature and pressure.
