Caltex introduced its Delo Sports Synthetic Blend SAE 10W-30, the first new-generation diesel engine product specifically designed to meet the requirements of sport utility, sport activity, pick up and 4×4 type vehicles. The product has passed rigorous tests for high-performance standards for diesel lubricants, certified by the American Petroleum Institute, and is now available for diesel engine owners in Sri Lanka.
This new product introduction by the lubricant giant to the local market offers diesel engine owners in Sri Lanka, the first premium quality, high performance, low viscosity diesel engine oil for Sport Utility Vehicles, and is the latest addition to the brand portfolio that is marketed by Chevron Lubricants Lanka PLC, the pre eminent marketer of Caltex, Havoline and Delo brand of lubricants in Sri Lanka.
Amongst the many benefits from using this specially formulated synthetic blend is the prolonged engine life capacity due to the very high oxidation stability combined with excellent dispersancy and anti-wear characteristics that minimizes deposit formation and wear. Control of soot related wear is especially important in SUV type diesel engines subject to stop/start city driving or in hard working off-road service. Further, the multigrade viscosity provides additional protection against wear at start-up and under high temperature operating conditions.
The product's high performance synthetic blend base fluid combined with the metallic detergent additive system preserves full power and performance by providing excellent upper-ring-belt deposit control under the high temperatures encountered in turbocharged diesel engines. As a result, the wear control capabilities in the product offers Sports Utility owners reduced operating costs as well.
The new Delo Sports Synthetic blend reduces oil consumption as its base fluid and highly shear-stable viscosity index improvers provide superior control of oil flow through the ring belt area by maintaining oil viscosity, thereby reducing the oil evaporation at the elevated ring zone temperatures experienced under high temperature on or off-road conditions.
"The Delo Sports Synthetic Blend SAE 10W-30 product launch demonstrates our commitment to offering cost effective and high performing solutions to the automobile industry and helps us stand out as a market leader of innovative products that uses next-generation technology" comments Mr.Kishu Gomes, Managing Director/CEO, Chevron Lubricants Lanka PLC.
