Petron Malaysia has launched a new range of engine oils and specialty lubricants and fluids specifically with a High Temperature Protection (HTP) formulation. This new range which includes engine oils, automatic transmission fluid (ATF), brake and clutch fluid (DOT 4) and grease, add to the extensive range of lubricants and fluids currently available.
Notably, Petron made mention of its engine oils i.e. Petron Blaze Racing HTP and Petron Rev-X Turbo HTP for petrol and diesel engines respectively. Both fully synthetic lubricants use polyalphaolefin (PAO) as its base oil (80% of content) which is a high-quality Group IV base oil. PAO is synthetic hydrocarbons with uniform molecules and high viscosity index and does not contain sulphur and nitrogen. This means the base oil has better oxidation and thermal resistance properties than other base oils, and when coupled with the additives formula, the oil will meet the most severe and stringent requirements for high performance engines.
As a result, the viscous and lubricating characteristics of Petron Blaze Racing HTP will not deteriorate significantly from extended use as it is designed to better protect the engine against corrosion and wear. It has been tested and certified to API SN, MB Approval 229.5, MB Approval 229.3, and Porsche A40 specifications.
Meanwhile, Petron Rev-X Turbo HTP is designed for naturally-aspirated, turbocharged or supercharged high performance heavy duty diesel engines. Its stable nature provides for extended engine protection, and better engine efficiency by preventing soot and piston deposits and generally lowering hydrocarbon emissions. It is approved and licensed according to API CJ-4/SN, MAN 3575, Cummins CES 20081, MB Approval 228.31, Volvo VDS-4, and Mack EO-O Premium Plus specifications.
“We continuously innovate and improve our product offerings as part of our promise to provide top quality petroleum products. The Petron HTP is specially formulated to give improved engine cleanliness, efficiency and engine protection – thus offering a superior choice to our customers in terms of better protection, better performance and more savings,” said Choong Kum Choy, Petron Head of Retail and Commercial Business.
“The products underscore our passion to provide the best lubricating solutions to our valued customers. Petron HTP engine oils meet the most stringent requirements for gasoline and diesel engines, and is approved and certified according to the specifications of the API and SAE. We are also focused on giving the best protection to other components of a vehicle with the concurrent launch of HTP gear oil, brake fluid and greases,” Choong added.
