Castrol announced the launch of its latest range of Castrol MAGNATEC motor oils, BS-VI ready for cars and SUVs. The new range also features India’s first 0W-16 motor oil for the retail aftermarket and new Castrol MAGNATEC SUV, which provides SUVs with proven wear protection from heavy loads.
After India’s migration to the latest BS-VI emission standards, more cars and SUVs are equipped with aftertreatment devices such as diesel/gasoline particulate filters (DPF/GPF) that are sensitive to sulfated ash, phosphorous and sulfur content (SAPs).
The new Castrol MAGNATEC has a reduced SAPS content and is BS-VI ready to ACEA C2/C3 industry specifications. It also meets API requirements to control Low Speed Pre-Ignition (LSPI) problem in Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) and Turbocharged GDI engines.
Castrol MAGNATEC’s new range will be available in four variants, 0W-16, 0W-20, 5W-30 and 5W-40, and will help meet automotive OEM recommendations for thinner grade lubricants such as 0W or 5W. . Each of the variants is based on Castrol’s unique DUALOCK technology which reduces engine wear by 50% (based on tests against Sequence IVA API SN and CEC OM646LA ACEA wear limits).
Welcoming the launch of the new Castrol MAGNATEC range, Jaya Jamrani, Vice President of Marketing, indian castrol, said: “Castrol has always strived to offer best-in-class products that provide unmatched vehicle performance and protection. The transition to BS-VI emission standards required renewed offerings of lubricants with lower SAPS and leaner grades.”
He added: “With our new MAGNATEC range, Castrol has led the industry movement towards BS-VI compliant lubricants. The new, fully synthetic Castrol MAGNATEC range is designed for BS-VI engines, but is also backward compatible with many older applications.”
