PETRONAS Syntium with °CoolTech™ Explained
14 Mar, 2019
PETRONAS Syntium with °CoolTech™ is the company’s flagship passenger car engine oil, engineered to reduce engine heat and maintain optimum engine performance for a trouble-free drive.
Excessive engine heat according to PETRONAS is a common problem – high-stress situations such as start-stop heavy traffic, hilly roads and high-rev acceleration are regularly encountered in everyday driving. These can drive up temperatures deep inside the engine and can put a strain on the powertrain, damaging critical components and reducing performance.
“PETRONAS Syntium with °CoolTech™ is uniquely engineered with strong oil chains to effectively absorb and transfer excess heat from critical engine parts by stopping engine-damaging heat at its source, drivers can be assured of optimum driving performance which leads to a trouble-free drive." says Graeme Dyall, Product Manager - Lubricants at CoolDrive Auto Parts.
Through increased heat dissipation, the benefits of PETRONAS °CoolTech™ lubricants are said to be threefold – firstly, they prevent engine failure by protecting key components from temperature-induced wear and tear. Secondly, they delay the thickening of oil by resisting oxidation, ensuring optimum lubrication. Finally, they maintain optimum engine performance by reducing harmful deposit build-up.
As a result, PETRONAS engine oils with °CoolTech™ are claimed to provide over 70% higher resistance to camshaft wear, over 60% higher oxidisation resistance and over 30% better protection against piston deposit build-up over standard engine oils.
“PETRONAS Syntium with °CoolTech™ delivers outstanding oxidation stability to protect the engine and ensure minimal oil thickening as the consequence of high operating temperatures, while ensuring lubrication of critical engine components, thus preventing detrimental wear and tear.”
PETRONAS lubricants leverage on 20 years of technical experience in Formula One in which °CoolTech™ was developed, culminating in the Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Motorsport team sweeping the drivers’ and constructors’ championships for the last 5 years. Petronas have onsite laboratory facilities within the Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Motorsport garage that tests and monitors all vehicle fluids at each stage of practice, qualifying and races during each F1 round.
“Engine oil plays a critical role to manage the engine’s temperature and prevent heat-related damage.”
"PETRONAS Syntium has proven to be a winning formula in F1. Equipped with a unique formulation, it protects the Mercedes-AMG engines against extreme temperatures and maintains optimum engine performance. The same °CoolTech™ technology developed for team Mercedes-AMG is now available for our customers."
