BPCL to launch two synthetic lubricants in India
Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd. (BPCL), which controls around 12% of India’s lubricants market, under the Mak brand, is launching two synthetic lubricants for premium cars and bikes this week.
The company is launching Mak TitaniumCK4, which is an ultra-low emission diesel engine oil for BS-VI compliant vehicles, and Mak BlazeSynth for high-end bikes.
“While both products have been successfully piloted in a few markets like Delhi-NCR, its nationwide commercial launch is slated for next week,” BPCL Executive Director In-Charge (Lubes Business) Santosh Kumar said last Friday.
The introduction of the new Bharat Stage VI standards in April 2020 has required more advanced lubricant formulations.
“For the modern higher capacity motorcycles, we are launching Mak BlazeSynth, which is a fully synthetic lube, offering high oxidation stability that inhibits oil degradation at elevated temperatures and reduces engine deposits, resulting in better engine performance,” Kumar said.
Mak BlazeSynth is available in 1 and 2.5 litres.
Mak TitaniumCK4 is an ultra-low emission synthetic diesel engine oil for BS-VI compliant vehicles. A lower viscosity engine oil, Mak TitaniumCK4 provides better fuel economy than conventionals. Mak TitaniumCK4 is available in 1, 15 and 210 litres.
