Petro-Canada Expands Heavy
Duty Engine Oil Product Line
Petro-Canada today announced the launch of DURON-E 10W-30, a new addition to their extensive line of API CJ-4 category, next-generation heavy duty engine oils (HDEOs). DURON-E 10W-30, specially formulated for both on- and off-road fleets, provides a number of performance benefits, including excellent soot dispersancy, extended drain capabilities, low engine wear and good top-up and cold start-up performance. Petro-Canada's CJ-4 product offering now includes this new DURON-E 10W-30, DURON-E Synthetic 10W-40, DURON-E XL Synthetic Blend 15W-40, DURON-E 15W-40 and DURON-E Synthetic 0W-40.
"We endeavour to provide an integrated HDEO product line - one that fulfils all of our customers' needs throughout multiple applications," says Paula Del Castilho, Petro-Canada's Commercial Transportation Lubricants Category Manager. "We don't simply sell oil, we sell lubricant solutions. In the case of DURON-E 10W-30 we're providing a solution to on- and off-road fleets that are in need of a premium 10W-30 heavy duty engine oil that performs and protects."
DURON-E 10W-30 is suitable for 4-stroke diesel, gasoline and natural gas automotive applications where SAE 10W-30 is recommended. Applications include engines equipped with exhaust aftertreatment devices such as diesel particulate filters (DPFs) and catalytic reactors. DURON-E 10W-30 is also completely back-serviceable and not only fits into the CJ-4 category but also CI-4 Plus, CI-4, CH-4 and CG-4/SM. OEM credentials currently include Caterpillar ECF-3, ECF-2, ECF-1-a; Cummins CES 20081; Volvo VDS-4; and Renault VI RLD 3.
"Since our first-to-market launch of our DURON-E brand back in 2006
we have continued to develop and build our HDEO product offering,"
adds Del Castilho. "In 2007 it was the addition of our DURON-E Synthetic
0W-40 - which has been very well-received - and now it's our 10W-30 formulation.
It's all about listening to customers, and evolving and innovating based
on their needs. Stay tuned because 2009 is shaping up to be another great
year, with more exciting announcements to come."
