Quality Assurance Laboratory Testing
Each VP Lubricants’ manufacturing facility is equipped with advanced laboratory equipment for systematic quality control testing. Our quality assurance system begins with the testing of all inbound raw materials to confirm desired performance properties. Next, every finished lubricant blend is batch tested for target physical properties and key performance characteristics, including; lubricant viscosity, NOACK volatility, cold crank, additive composition & metals, water & sediment content, Brookfield viscosity, density, specific gravity and ASTM color.
Certificate of Analysis
VP Lubricants provides a certificate of analysis with outbound bulk shipments, upon request. Our certificate of analysis contains primary performance properties for each specific product. Testing is conducted on retain product samples collected during the loading and/or manufacturing process. Redundant testing ensures compliance with strict internal and industry standards. Retain samples of raw materials and finished lubricant blends are kept on file at each facility for a minimum 6 months.
