PETRONAS INTRODUCES THE NEW SYNTIUM 7000 LUBRICANT
As part of its commitment to innovation and continuous engineering, PETRONAS Dagangan Berhad (PDB) recently introduced its new PETRONAS Syntium 7000 SN 0W-40 fully synthetic engine oil in the Malaysian marketthat promises to deliver ultimate lubrication performance.
The new lubricant was designed by PETRONAS Fluid Technology Solutions™ – the intelligent approach to your fluid requirements that maximizes engine performance through tailor-made product offerings and expert services. As PETRONAS Syntium’s Technical Performance Consultant, Lewis Hamilton, the driving sensation of the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One™ Team provided valuable inputs towards the development of the lubricant.
PETRONAS Syntium 7000 is engineered to meet the current demand of a wide range of car manufacturers. It is formulated with high quality synthetic base stocks and advanced additives to provide exceptional thermal and oxidation stability that ensure minimum oil thickening at very high operating temperatures, excellent deposit control and minimised engine wear and tear, even under the most extreme driving conditions.
Speaking about the latest innovation, Mohd Ibrahimnuddin bin Mohd Yunus, the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of PDB said, “With the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One™ Team race cars as the benchmark for formulating our products, we have engineered PETRONAS fuels and lubricants to meet the requirements for all types of engines. The PETRONAS Syntium 7000 is the result of the knowledge, technology and innovation obtained from developing the fluids used in Mercedes-Benz Formula One™ engines.”
“With ongoing benchmarking against the best in motorsports, our customers can expect ultimate engine power and protection as proven time and again on the Formula One™ race tracks,” he added.
The consecutive wins and the impressive 1-2 finishes by the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One™ Team in the 2014 Season so far clearly testified to the winning formula of PETRONAS Syntium. It is also noteworthy to mention that PETRONAS Syntium lubricants and PETRONAS PRIMAX fuels are currently used in the power units of three Mercedes-Benzpowered teams.
Reinforcing its commitment to deliver only the best for global drivers, PETRONAS Syntium 7000 was certified to exceed the international standards of American Petroleum Institute (API) SN and the European Automobile Manufacturer’s Association ACEA A3/B4 quality performance. A further testimony to its efficacy, PETRONAS Syntium 7000 is the only approved engine oil and currently used as the first fill of the Mercedes AMG M133 engine, the world’s most powerful four-cylinder series production engine across all applications including Mercedes A 45 AMG, CLA 45 AMG and GLA 45 AMG, a family of compact, 4-door coupe and sport utility vehicles.
Ibrahimnuddin said, “PETRONAS Syntium range of lubricants has evolved from our years of extensive research and development, and now together with the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team, the range provides indisputable benefits for our customers.”
