Engine pressures have almost doubled over the past 30 years, with modern engines working harder and running hotter to maintain maximum engine efficiency with lower emissions. A good lubricant not only manages engine heat and reduces friction and wear, but also protects against the effects of high temperature and damaging contaminants. It also helps the engine deliver fuel efficiency with optimum levels of protection and performance.
With the change in structure and efficiency of the engines, oil too needs to be stronger, stay stronger and constantly adapt to the engine’s needs, in all driving conditions. Castrol EDGE Titanium FST™ physically changes the way oil behaves under extreme engine pressures, owing to the addition of Titanium FST™.
The unique titanium polymer is proven to combat friction by up to 15% (compared to Castrol EDGE, without Titanium FST™) by forming shock-absorbing pads that reduce metal-to-metal contact, which may critically damage engine components, helping the engine to deliver better performance.
In an independent engine test for film strength, lubricants with Castrol EDGE Titanium FST™ maintained their film strength for at least 140 hours longer than the same oils without the Titanium FST™. It has also been found that under extreme pressures, Titanium FST™ doubles its film strength, preventing oil film breakdown, thus better reducing friction.
The Right Oil for the Right Car
Most drivers in the UK consider the car manufacturer’s recommendation as the prime criteria while selecting the brand of oil. Castrol is amongst the most recommended oils on the market with a range that is fully ‘approved’ by manufacturers, owing to its consistent research initiative.
Over the last decade, more than 2,400 individual lubricant blends were tested by Castrol, using a wide range of different tools and processes to develop the optimal specification. This analysis included tests to prove the lubricant’s capacity to reduce friction, minimise metal-to-metal contact, prevent wear and corrosion and operate at extremes of high and low temperatures.
Charles Wakefield patented his first lubricant at the beginning of the 20th century. With more than 115 years of innovation, Castrol has collaborated with customers and pioneers in the motorcar, motorcycle and aviation industries. The same innovative and collaborative spirit has kept Castrol at the fore-front of cutting-edge oil technology.
With its ground-breaking technology and specifications, Castrol EDGE Titanium FST™ can help boost sales opportunities for motor factors by:
• providing valuable top-up sales opportunities;
• lending outstanding engine protection for vehicles;
• helping build customer satisfaction and loyalty.
