Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

FAQ

You should change your oil and oil filter at or before the end of oil-change intervals indicated by your vehicle manufacturer. These are based on distance travelled or time. Regular oil changing helps to keep your engine oil in good condition and provide the best protection for all of your engine components.
In the event that you essentially keep on topping up your oil, you put more pressure on the existing oil that remains within the motor. And this stretch will cause more undesirable events in the long term, advanced motors presently run with almost 25% less oil in their sumps. Power Up engine oil incorporates a effective capacity to clean up your motor components and goes on keeping motors clean through to the another oil-change.
Engine oil has multiple purposes, mainly lubrication of engine parts which are subject to friction, thereby reducing servicing costs. It also helps in addition to the role of coolant to cool the engine parts which become heated due to combustion and friction. Some other advantages include cleaning, protection against corrosion of metal parts and sealing by forming a protective layer around the engine cylinders.
A two-letter code is now used to classify engine oils. S is the first letter in the codefor gasoline engine oils. The letter C represents thecategory fordiesel engine oil.

The second letter simply denotes a progression of higher quality levels over the years of engine oil research and development. In other words, the following letter of the alphabet is employed when a new industry quality level is formed (so SN replaced SM). To avoid potential confusion with other regularly used designations, the letters "I" and "K" were purposely omitted.
Semi-synthetic engine oil is made up of a blend of high-performance fluids and regular mineral oil.

Fully synthetic engine oil, on the other hand, is simply high-performance fluids that are 100 percent synthetic. Although fully synthetic oils are preferable for high-performance, semi-synthetic oils are less expensive.
Before choosing an alternative engine oil in your next servicing, make sure the oil meets the same API requirement of your previous engine oil used. If you are still confused, you can read the guide given by your automaker as they would usually recommend the most suitable engine oil for your car needs.

Silicone Sealant FAQ

In contrast to water-based sealants like latex, an RTV (Room Temperature Vulcanization) silicone sealer begins to cure quickly when exposed to air (particularly, the moisture contained in the air).
Silicone sealant is most commonly used for doors and windows installing sealing, all kinds of decoration filling and sealing, other general industrial use such as sealing in electronics (white goods), and waterproof sealing. It is also heavily used in construction such as curtain wall sealing.

Interior uses include kitchen countertops, glass joints and sinks.
Silicone sealants cannot be painted. We recommend acrylic sealant for paintable caulk
Silicone Sealant can have different properties and used for various surfaces. Some factors like adhesion, elasticity, and hardness can differ a lot so it is vital to choose the right sealant for the job.

Our silicone products come with a one-year shelf life warranty from Powerup Silicone Sealant. Batch numbers, which specify the production date, are used to keep track of this. Powerup Sealant also assures a 5 year lifespan after curing.

Before beginning a job, test the sealant by applying a small dosage of sealantto a scrap piece of plasticor other suitable material. If the substance does not"skin" after around 15-20 minutes, it is most likely expired and will not fully cure.

If the silicone in the tube has hardened (cured), it cannot be used and has most certainly reached the end of its shelf life. If you have reason to suspect the product hasn't expired, return it to the store where you bought it or contact us immediately.
