Castrol MAGNATEC 10w-40 A3/B4
The Castrol Magnatec range of semi-synthetic oils is designed specifically for drivers who are concerned about the longevity of their vehicle’s powertrain. The unique molecules contained in this lubricant give the oil excellent protective properties: all internal engine components remain coated with lubricant when the car is not in use for long periods of time.
Castrol Magnatec 10w-40 is a semi-synthetic oil with unique technology. As part of the oil includes a package of additives that contain Intelligent Molecules.
What do they do? These intelligent molecules “stick” to the metal surfaces of motor parts. This creates a tough, impact-resistant film. It won’t trickle down into the crankcase pan even when the engine is off. Other oil will flow out. As a result, the engine is virtually “dry” and unprotected when starting and warming up. Therefore, studies show that up to 75 % of engine wear takes place just at the start.
Castrol MAGNATEC 10w-40 A3/B4 Description
Castrol Magnatec 10w-40 keeps its film during the whole period of exploitation, regardless of whether the engine is running or is at a standstill. In this way, it really reduces engine wear. Castrol Magnatec 10w-40 A3/B4 as a high quality semi-synthetic oil incorporates all the best features of pure synthetic and mineral oils. It’s cleaner of sludge – but gentle. It is resistant to low and high temperatures. It is easy to start in cold weather. It is protection against overheating. It prevents the formation of harmful deposits.
Universally suitable for use in all engines, including turbocharged and intercooled engines, where the manufacturer has prescribed the use of oils with specification ACEA A3/B4, API SL/CF, or earlier. The ability to maintain optimum viscosity over a wide temperature range allows the oil to be used year-round in all climatic zones.
Castrol “Magnatec” is a universal motor oil that has a suitable viscosity for summer and winter use.
Also by standard, this lubricant may be used in the following engines: Atmospheric petrol engines or engines equipped with a turbocharger. Diesel engines, with distributed or direct fuel injection.
The oil has passed Sequence IVA wear tests and significantly reduces engine wear, especially during start-up and warm-up. The oil film is highly resistant to impact and shearing, protecting the parts against scuffing.
It guarantees fast and trouble-free cold starts in winter. Helps reduce the friction coefficient and increases engine power.
Reduces fuel consumption and particulate matter in exhaust gases. Keeps the engine clean by reducing the number of deposits in the form of carbon deposits and soot.
