Leading lubricant manufacturer Castrol India on Monday launched its range of BS-VI ready Castrol Magnatec engine oils for cars and SUVs.
According to the release from the company, the new range of engine oils will be available in four variants, 0W-16, 0W-20, 5W-30 and 5W-40 and will help meet automotive OEMs’ recommendations for thinner grade lubricants such as 0W or 5W.
Each of the variants is based on Castrol’s Dualock technology that reduces engine wear by 50% (as tested versus Sequence IVA API SN and CEC OM646LA ACEA wear limits), the release added.
The company said that the new engine oils have reduced SAPS content and is BS-VI ready as per industry specifications of ACEA C2/C3.
Moreover, it also meets API requirements to control the problem of low-speed pre-ignition (LSPI) in gasoline direct injection (GDI) and turbocharged GDI engines, it added.
Jaya Jamrani, Vice President, Marketing, Castrol India, said, “The transition to BS-VI emission norms required refreshed offerings of lubricants with lower SAPS and thinner grades. The new, fully synthetic Castrol Magnetc range is designed for BS-VI engines, but is also backward compatible with many older applications.”
