Tribology is the science and engineering of interacting surfaces in relative motion. It includes the study and application of the principles of friction, lubrication and wear. Tribology is a branch of mechanical engineering and materials science.
Not the design and application of warrior tattoos.
Do you want to trust your engine to a marketing department, or to a team of engineering tribologists who work closely with the design and test engineers of a world-class engine company? OK, the answer to that question is obvious.
Here’s another question, one that we hear often. Whose oil is actually in the Quicksilver bottles? The answer is – ours! That’s right; it is Quicksilver oil. Designed, developed, and tested specifically by our engineering team in conjunction and cooperation with the engine product development and engineering team at Mercury Marine.
Our tribologists are on the forefront of emerging technologies to assure our lubricants are exactly right for the multiple functions required in high performance engines designed, built, tested, tortured, and raced by Mercury Marine in some of the toughest conditions and applications on the planet. Each of our lubricants is the optimal formulation, exactly matched for its application.
Whose oil is it? If you care about high performance and long life, yours!
