New Castrol Magnatec with Dualock technology launched in India

Castrol India has launched the latest generation of Castrol Magnatec engine oil with Dualock technology, specifically designed to provide nonstop engine protection, not only during warm up but also during stop-start driving conditions.

Castrol Magnatec with Dualock technology is the latest pioneering innovation from Castrol, a result of more than 10 years of research and more than three million kilometers of on-road testing. It is specifically designed to provide non-stop engine protection, not only during warm up but also during stop-start driving conditions.

“Castrol Magnatec with new and unique Dualock technology uses a combination of two different protective molecules that lock together at the engine surface to create a powerful force field of protection, delivering a groundbreaking 50% reduction in the warm-up and stop-start wear,” said Simon Edwards, head of technology, Castrol India and Middle East. “Castrol Magnatec Stop-Start 0W-20 and Castrol Magnatec Stop-Start 5W-30 offer an additional benefit of fuel efficiency of up to 60 liters per annum.”

“Both car engines and drivers are under considerable stress in today’s congested traffic conditions. The average driver can stop and start as many as 18,000 times a year and can spend up to 1/3 of the journey time idling. This puts up to 66% more load on critical engine parts compared to driving on the open road,” said Kedar Apte, vice president of marketing, Castrol India. “The reinvented Castrol Magnatec formulation with groundbreaking Dualock technology is engineered specifically for such stressful driving conditions. We believe that this launch will further strengthen Castrol’s leadership position in the passenger car segment in India.”

The Dualock technology is available across the full range of the Castrol Magnatec product portfolio in different viscosity grades, addressing the evolving needs of the Indian passenger car market.

Castrol Magnatec 10W-40 is suitable for petrol and Castrol Magnatec Diesel 15W-40 for diesel engines. Castrol Magnatec Stop-Start 5W-30 is suitable for applications across petrol, diesel and compressed natural gas (CNG) engines. Castrol Magnatec Stop-Start 0W-20 for petrol engines was also introduced with this launch.
