Chevron Philippines Launches High-Performance Diesel Motor Oil
Chevron, marketer of the Caltex brand, unveiled its latest premium diesel engine oil, Caltex Delo 400 MGX SAE 15W-40, to address commercial business needs while meeting stringent Philippine emission regulations. The revolutionary formulation constitutes a higher specification and is specially designed to comply with Philippine market requirements. It will benefit both new and old diesel engines and allow customers to utilize just one heavy-duty engine oil that operates efficiently in both high- and low-sulfur diesel fuel environments.
“Introducing the Caltex Delo 400 MGX SAE 15W-40 to the Philippine market is proof of our commitment to provide customers with ground-breaking products that not only boost performance, but also reduce operating costs and maximize diesel engine durability,” said Lennard Kwek, Asia Pacific Marketing Manager, Chevron Lubricants.
The Caltex Delo product range includes lubricants and coolants that provide premium protection, performance and bottom-line value for on- and off-road diesel-powered equipment. These products are utilized in all major heavy industries such as commercial transportation, construction, mining, agriculture and power generation.
Delo’s industry-leading lubricants have logged 2.4 million kilometers and countless hours offering superior protection to diesel engine parts for smooth vehicle and equipment operations. Thoroughly field-tested in trucks using up to 5000 ppm diesel fuel sulfur levels, the Caltex Delo 400 MGX has demonstrated an exceptional performance capability in neutralizing harmful acids and retaining alkalinity in extended-drain operations.
“Heavy industry players are grappling with challenges such as excessive occupational heat exposure and maintaining an age-diverse fleet operating in both high- and ultra-low sulphur environments. With the local launch of the Caltex Delo 400 MGX, an American Petroleum Institute (API) and American and European Original Equipment Manufacturers’ (OEM) standard compliant diesel engine oil, heavy industries can finally experience synthetic-like performance at the cost of mineral products, significantly reducing premium lubrication costs,” said Joseph Bronfman, Area Business Manager, Finished Lubricants Philippines & Vietnam.
Apart from that, the Delo 400 MGX comes with ISOSYN Technology that combines premium base oils, high performance additives, and the company’s formulation expertise to deliver excellent diesel engine part protection at a competitive value. The Caltex Delo 400 MGX SAE 15W-40’s new advanced formula delivers excellent soot dispersancy, wear protection and sludge control to guard against loss of engine life and help reduce oil consumption.
Caltex Delo 400 MGX SAE 15W-40 also has the added advantage of a single fleet oil, which reduces the need for multiple diesel engine oils. Specifically developed to meet local emission regulations, OEM requirements and local market performance specification, Delo with ISOSYN helps extend service protection and optimize engine durability and operating costs.
The newly launched Caltex Delo 400 MGX SAE 15W-40 is currently available in drum and gallon packaging through our appointed distributors at the same price as the outgoing Delo 400 MG’s price.
