Chemlube Esterbond Semi Synthetic 10w40 Feedback by Henry

Owner : Henry
Car : Proton Waja
Car Age : 10 Years (pic attached)
Millege : 280,000 + km (pic attached

I was using Chemlube Esterbond Semi Synthetic engine oil on my 10 years old Proton Waja.  It has been giving me all the benefits I have been looking for, exceptional response ,improved and consistent performance, easy start-up , smooth and low noise running engine.  However these are not the reason triggering me for writting a feedback as all the mentioned above are already well known to all Chemlube car owner and you will realize these benefits immediate after you switched to Chemlube.

What really impressed me was during recent gasket change, which i have my engine top opened and it came to my surprise with the cleanliness of the engine top.  My workhorse was 10 years old and has been running more than 280,000 km to date, I didn't put much expectation on engine but what shown up was the engine still in a beautiful condition, with no sign of sludge at all whereas can find the smoothness of the engine parts with finger touch.

Most of the engine oil offer and promote engine  protection but this is what I am always skeptical which how could performance and protection strike a balance, but with the personal experience, I am convinced that my car engine has been well protected and taken care by Chemlube  and yet giving me outstanding performance.

Strongly recommend for owner who look for performance yet maximum protection.

Apa itu Ester? (Edisi Bahasa Melayu)

ESTER? Ape itu ESTER? Ester adalah hasil tindak balas acids & alcohol. Ester SANGAT STABIL pada suhu yang sangat tinggi dan sebab itu ester digunakan secara meluas dalam minyak enjin jet dan kereta formula 1(F1)!

Kenape perlu ESTER dalam minyak enjin?? 
Sifat molekul ESTER sentiasa TERTARIK kepada permukaan metal yang bercas positif. Oleh sebab itu, molekul tersebut tersusun dan melekat di permukaan logam di bahagian-bahagian dalam enjin dan menghasilkan lapisan perlindungan nipis untuk mencegahkan gesaran masa permulaan enjin, jadi pagi-pagi, kereta anda akan SENANG UNTUK START dan enjin akan LAGI LANCAR walaupun dalam keadaan suhu yang tinggi atau pun rendah! Kekurangan terjadinya gesekan, juga meningkatkan tenaga dan enjin lebih dingin, bahkan lagi senyap. Selain daripada itu, Ester adalah detergen semula jadi yang kuat untuk membersihkan endapan karbon pada enjin.

Visit to Northern State Chemlube Outlet Leaves a Deep Impression

Being an occasional traveller up north, I was pleasantly surprised to find out about the rapid development taking place in a once sleepy town of Kepala Batas. I was in the market for a property to invest in and a friend recommends that I take a serious look at this growth centre, the birthplace of former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Badawi.

And so with the Hari Raya holidays presenting an opportunity to unwind, I brought along the family up north for another "look-see-look-see" trip. Well, I have to bring along the "finance minister" for her second opinion in case I really like to invest there.

Anyway, to cut the long story short – as this article isn't about property investment or development – this trip also gave me a chance to complete some unfinished endeavor that has been lingering in my mind since my last trip in January. I was looking for workshops that carries Chemlube motor oil so that I can check them out for reliability in case the need arises to service my car. A friend did earlier give me details of a workshop in Sg. Petani and I had wanted to visit them during this trip.

This workshop is Lee Cheng Motor Services Sdn Bhd and is about 10 minutes from the toll-exit and located just off the main road. I also found out that it is an authorized service centre for a popular auto maker, much like the other workshop I visited in Penang Island the last time.

It is a spacious workshop and well equipped but most importantly I observed that the mechanics there handled their customers' vehicles with reasonable care. I spoke to the workshop owner, Mr. Chin, who is very hands-on with the servicing and despite having experienced mechanics working on separate cars, he participates and goes from car to car to ensure their servicing is done correctly.

Mr. Chin is a well qualified man who holds a bachelor degree and a Fellow of the Institute of Motor Industry (FIMI-UK). With such background, it is not surprising that he was a pioneer who chose to offer the superior Chemlube synthetic motor oil more than two decades ago. Yes, that's how long ago that he first sold Chemlube and he has something from that era to show.
Chemlube prominently displayed in the workshop.
According to Mr. Chin, he has some customers who are very loyal and continued to use Chemlube for many years (like me). He has never gotten complains from any of his customers about Chemlube's performance. "The more you know Chemlube, the more you'll appreciate it", he says.

Michael changing new Chemlube oil on another customer's car.
I changed my Chemlube at Lee Cheng Motor Services that day. At the same time I also requested servicing for my brakes. I noticed that Michael (the mechanic who serviced my car) patiently allowed the used oil to drain till the last drop before replacing new Chemlube oil. When he serviced my brakes, he used a vacuum suction to suck out the old brake fluid while adding new fluid in its place without allowing air bubbles to form in the tubes which will impact braking efficiency. I like this "high-tech" fluid replacement without having to pump the brake pedal repeatedly to remove air bubbles and I'm pleasantly impressed that a workshop in a less affluent part of the country provides such level of service.

Michael has been changing Chemlube motor oil for years.
Finally, my mission is complete, having done what I came for and visited two reliable workshops in the north where I can get my trusted Chemlube motor oil and which have met my high expectations in servicing my well maintained Toyota Camry. For Lee Cheng Motor Services in Sg. Petani, I certainly left, deeply impressed.

Synthetic vs Regular Oil

Synthetic vs regular oil - which is better? Without trying to put an end to a discussion that has no end, let’s look at a few facts. The oil we put in our engines serves multiple purposes. It coats the metal parts inside and allows them to run on a thin layer of lubrication thereby reducing friction and wear. It also works as an additional coolant, neutralizes acids, captures and transports combustion by-product particles to the oil filter, and employs solvents to keep the engine clean. Motor enthusiasts love to debate the merits of one oil over another and when someone brings up the “synthetic vs regular oil” issue, the conversation is off to the races with “experts” pressing advantages and disadvantages with knowing passion. The reality is, there are degrees of “rightness” and “wrongness” depending on what you’re driving and how you’re driving it. The oil you use in your family car (even if you've tuned it up to breath a little life into that grocery store run) isn’t going to be the same oil that goes into a racing engine. In order to choose the right oil, it helps to understand some of the key differences between synthetic and regular.

"Regular oils" are mineral-based products refined from crude oil taken from the ground. Over the past 20 years these lubricants have been refined even further, particularly in the area of viscosity enhancers. This means modern oils flow better over a range of temperatures. This, in combination with engines that sport tighter clearances and better machining, allow for the use of thin oils that both reduce friction and improve fuel efficiency. For instance, in the world of racing, very few teams are going to be using motor oil with single rated viscosity. Racers not only want efficient operation and greater power, they want the best lubrication of engine parts as quickly as possible. (Start-ups deliver high engine wear, so you want an oil that gets to work quickly.)

"Synthetic oils", which have been around since the 1970s, have the same natural ingredients as "regular oils" but they are distilled in a chemical plant where the concept of refining goes techno-geek. Try wrapping your head around the concept of “synthesized-hydrocarbon molecular chains” and base fluids including “polyalphaolefin, synthetic esters, and alkylated aromatics.” What the heck do all these terms mean? In plain english, they are the engineered basis for the synthetic oil qualities listed below.

Synthetic oils:

are all season and have multi-viscosity properties, some flowing as much as seven times faster than regular oil.can stand extremes of engine temperature (some above 400°F) more efficiently.can boost horsepower more effectively than thinner regular oils.can be used for as much as 10,000 miles before requiring an oil change.contain fewer contaminants like sulfur, wax, and other elements that contribute to sludge build-up.

Of course, synthetic oils are more expensive and there are some things they don’t do, including:

eliminate the need for oil changes.or eliminate engine wear.

The major advantage of synthetic oils is superior lubrication that significantly reduces engine wear over the long term.

For regular drivers and performance car enthusiasts, there’s a place for both types of oil. Conventional wisdom suggests that you should use “regular” oil while breaking in an engine. At this phase of an engine’s life, you want some wear to make sure all the components get properly smoothed down. (On the other hand, there are plenty of performance cars that come from the factory using synthetic oil.) Depending on who you ask, this breaking-in period can be as short as 500 or as long as 5,000 miles. At whatever point you choose, the switch from regular oil to synthetic oil is intended to then slow engine wear down as much as possible. (And you don’t want to mix regular and synthetic as that’s a great recipe for sludge.) At the racing level, of course, a team is going to test various oils, determine what horsepower gain is returned, gauge the viscosity and temperature tolerances, and in short, make a science out of oil choice versus engine benefit.

As you can see, there are virtues to both types of engine oil. Anything you put in your engine or any modification you make to your vehicle, whether it's a racer or the family car, has to be looked at in terms of the goal you're seeking to achieve. Without question, the chemical composition of synthetic oils have a quality and uniformity at the molecular level that just isn't found in conventional, "regular" oils. Synthetic oils will continue to be fine-tuned in the laboratory to give even higher levels of performance and benefit. As we ask more of our engines, not only in terms of output but in the areas of clean and efficient operation, no one can afford to rule out synthetic oils as a viable option, on or off the track. Like everything about automobiles, lubrication techniques are evolving rapidly and the days of indiscriminately telling the guy at the gas station to "just add a quart" are definitely over.
