For use in the engine oil, AVBLEND®'s formula has been around since 1937, where it started out in the racing industry and then was introduced to the automotive market as zMAX Micro-lubricant. The FAA later approved this same formula, to be known as AVBLEND, for use in piston-driven aircraft engines. Read more about our history.
AVBLEND is used by mechanics, the occasional pilot to the professional aerobatic stunt pilot, such as Sean Tucker. During an air show, AVBLEND helped Sean stay out of Lake Michigan after a blown oil line (read his amazing story). This same great formula is also used as zMAX Micro-lubricant in vehicles, for heavy duty use, small engines, locomotives and firearms.
