Written by Nizam Shaikh

Castrol has introduced a new range of engine oils for the latest BS6 compliant vehicles in the Indian market. The leading lubricant brand has also announced the launch of India’s first 0W-16 engine oil for retail markets. In addition to this, Castrol has also revealed that the brand is introducing the Castrol Maagnatec SUV. The engine oil has been specially formulated for SUVs which is the fast-growing segment in the country.

Castrol Magnatec Engine Oils

Castrol offers the Magnatec range of engine oils for a wide range of BS6 ready engine oils for cars and SUVs. The new range of Castrol Magnatec oils also features India’s first 0W-16 engine oil for the retail aftermarket. This also includes the all-new Castrol MAGNATEC SUV, which claims to offer protection from heavy-load wear. The Castrol MAGNATEC engine oil also boasts of having a unique DUALOCK technology that claims to reduce engine wear by 50%

Castrol Magnatec BS6 Engine Oils and Specifications

Post the BS6 shift, cars and SUVs are fitted with after-treatment devices such as Diesel/Gasoline Particulate Filters (DPF/GPF). These devices are sensitive to Sulphated ash, Phosphorus and Sulphur (SAPS) content. The new Castrol Magnatec range of oils come with reduced SAPS content and is, therefore, BS6 ready as per industry specifications of ACEA C2/C3. The engine oil range also meets API requirements for controlling the low-speed pre-ignition (LSPI) in gasoline direct injection (GDI) and turbocharged GDI engines.

Castrol Magnatec DUALOCK Technology

The Castrol Magnatec engine oil features the brand’s latest DUALOCK technology that reduces engine wear by 50%. These claims are also per tests Sequence IVA API SN, and CEC OM646LA ACEA wear limits. The fully synthetic range is not only designed for the BS6 engine but is also backward compatible with many older applications.

Castrol Magnatec Oil Range and Distribution

The Castrol Magnatec oil range is available in four variants – 0W-16, 0W-20, 5W-30 and 5W-40. The Magnatec range will also help meet automotive OEMs recommendations for thinner grade lubricants such as 0W or 5W. Castrol in India has three blending plants and a distribution network of 330 distributors. These distributors reach consumers through more than 100,000 retail outlets.
