Petronas Lubricants International (PLI) has been showcasing its winning products and fluid technology – Syntium with CoolTech and Urania with ViscGuard – for automotive and commercial vehicles, respectively, at the biennial Automechanika held this week in Frankfurt, Germany.

Petronas Syntium 7000 0W-16 with CoolTech is an ultra-low viscosity motor oil with exceptional heat dispersion capacity that prevents engine damage by protecting the components from wear and tear caused by high temperatures; delays oil thickening by preventing oxidation at high temperatures to ensure optimum lubrication of engine components; and ensures optimum engine performance by fighting against the accumulation of harmful deposits caused by excessive overheating in extreme driving conditions.

The new Syntium 5000 DM 5W-30, also with CoolTech, provides improved protection for engines under extreme and demanding driving conditions. The lubricant and formulated with fully synthetic and environmentally friendly engine oil technology suitable for high-performance Mercedes-Benz, GM, Renault, BMW, PSA (Peugeot, Citroen and DS) and Volkswagen vehicles with petrol and diesel engines that are equipped with exhaust gas after treatment system as well as emission control devices such as diesel particulate filters and catalytic converters.

The engine oil is also compatible with modern electronic fuel-injected and multi-valve technology engines, turbochargers or superchargers and is compatible with the use of biofuels.

Petronas Urania with ViscGuard is the premium engine oil for commercial vehicles designed to provide effective protection against build-up of engine deposits and prevent abrasive wear and oxidation. The oil viscosity is optimally preserved and ensures long driving times for drivers and companies.

Tests show that Urania with ViscGuard has up to 89% higher oil viscosity resistance compared to current industry standards – and under strong soot conditions too. The carbon deposits also showed up to 50% reduction while the lubricant properties remained optimal.

Anchored on technology as the differentiator, collaboration has been key in the success behind Petronas fluid technology. Drawing on 20 years of experience in Formula 1, Petronas’ collaboration with Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport has resulted in Petronas Fluid Technology Solutions, which has contributed to the F1 team’s 4 consecutive World Constructors’ Championships since 2014, and the victories of the Petronas De Rooy IVECO Team.

Visitors to the Petronas stand could experience being in a Formula 1 car with the racing simulator and VR goggles.
