Petronas has introduced its revised range of Syntium with CoolTech lubricants for 2019, here formulated to better perform against excessive engine heat for improved performance and efficiency, says Petronas. CoolTech was introduced to the Syntium range of lubricants in 2015, and the range has been expanded to feature in several grades of the brand’s engine oil.

The revised lubricants range includes the Petronas Syntium 7000 Hybrid 0W-20 with CoolTech – the firm’s first lubricant for hybrid engines, Petronas Syntium 7000 0W-16 with CoolTech, Petronas Syntium 7000 0W-20 with CoolTech, Petronas Syntium 3000 5W-30 and Petronas 800 5W-30 CoolTech; these lubricants meet the latest API SN Plus specifications and have been made to protect against low-speed pre-ignition, particularly in turbocharged, direct-injection petrol engines, says Petronas.

“The new range stands to capture the growing market as we tap into a previously underserved, cutting-edge segment. Coupled with our experience in Formula One, we have developed a formulation that focuses on optimising engine performance for both gas fuel and hybrid vehicles,” said Petronas Dagangan Berhad MD and CEO Datuk Sri Syed Zainal Abidin Syed Mohamad Tahir.

“In this regard, the CoolTech technology has been developed to help cool critical engine parts so that the machine can run efficiently, even when under pressure,” he added.

The new range of Syntium lubricants were showcased with Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsports F1 driver and five-time Drivers’ Championship title winner Lewis Hamilton as well as Petronas Lubricants International chief technical officer Eric Holthusen.

“Petronas Syntium plays such a crucial role in the cooling of our engines and supports us in achieving results on track. The teamwork between our technical organisations has been outstanding, and it’s reassuring to know that we have the best and most reliable fluids for our engines. It makes it easier to stay focused on our goal and achieve the best result for the team on the race track,” said Hamilton.

Prices for the latest Syntium with CoolTech range of lubricants are RM295 (4L) and RM80 (1L) for the Syntium 7000 Hybrid 0W-20 with CoolTech, RM315 (4L) and RM95 (1L) for Syntium 7000 0W-16 with CoolTech, RM185 (4L) and RM60 (1L) for Syntium 7000 0W-20 with CoolTech, RM180 (4L) and RM55 (1L) for Syntium 3000 5W-30 and RM144 (4L) and RM40 (1L) for Petronas 800 5W-30 with CoolTech.
