  1. Oxidation Stability: Oxidation stability is a chemical reaction that occurs with a combination of the lubricant and oxygen. The rate of oxidation is accelerated by high temperatures, water, acids, and catalysts such as copper. The service life of a lubricant reduces with an increase in temperature.
  2. Viscosity Index: The viscosity index (VI) is an arbitrary, unit-less measure of a fluids change in viscosity relative to temperature change. It is mostly used to characterise the viscosity-temperature behaviour of lubricating oils. The higher the VI, the more stable the viscosity remains over temperature fluctuations.
  3. Filterability: Capable of being filtered or separated by filtering.
  4. Low Sludging Formation Tendency: Having low sludge formation tendency.
