EX­HAUS­TIVE DE­VEL­OP­MENT TO DE­LIVER TI­TA­NIUM STRONG OIL

Street Machine - - Spit And Polish -

AD­VANCES IN EN­GINE DE­SIGNS AND TECH­NOLO­GIES BE­ING DE­VEL­OPED BY CAR MAN­U­FAC­TUR­ERS AIM TO DE­LIVER GREATER EF­FI­CIENCY THAN EVER, BUT ALSO MEAN THAT EN­GINES ARE WORK­ING HARDER AND UN­DER HIGHER PRES­SURES THAN EVER BE­FORE. THE ONLY THING KEEP­ING METAL EN­GINE COM­PO­NENTS APART IS THE OIL, SO IT NEEDS TO BE STRONG AND RE­MAIN STRONG. CAS­TROL EDGE IS BOOSTED WITH TI­TA­NIUM FST™, WHICH DOU­BLES ITS STRENGTH AGAINST OIL FILM BREAK­DOWN^. THE UNIQUE TI­TA­NIUM POLY­MER IS PROVEN TO COM­BAT FRIC­TION – WHICH SLOWS THE EN­GINE, CON­SUMES EN­ERGY AND IM­PEDES THE EN­GINE’S ABIL­ITY TO DE­LIVER POWER – BY UP TO 15%*, AND RE­DUCES METAL-TO-METAL CON­TACT THAT MAY CRIT­I­CALLY DAM­AGE EN­GINE COM­PO­NENTS. UL­TI­MATELY, THIS HELPS THE EN­GINE TO DE­LIVER MORE PER­FOR­MANCE. When com­pared to a ma­jor com­peti­tor, and in an in­de­pen­dent en­gine test of film strength, lu­bri­cants with Cas­trol EDGE’S TI­TA­NIUM FST™ main­tained their film strength for at least 140 hours** longer than the same oils with­out the TI­TA­NIUM FST™.

“THE UNIQUE TI­TA­NIUM FST™ IN CAS­TROL EDGE FUN­DA­MEN­TALLY CHANGES THE WAY CAS­TROL EDGE BE­HAVES UN­DER EX­TREME PRES­SURES,” SAID SI­MON GUR­NEY, SE­NIOR DE­VEL­OP­MENT TECH­NOL­O­GIST

OF CAS­TROL.“OVER THE LAST DECADE, OUR RE­SEARCH SCI­EN­TISTS PAINSTAK­INGLY CON­DUCTED HUN­DREDS OF TESTS IN THE LAB­O­RA­TORY AND EN­GINE TEST CELLS TO TEST, DE­VELOP, RE­FINE AND FINE-TUNE THE LUBRICANT BLEND FOR­MU­LA­TIONS.” More than 2,400 in­di­vid­ual lubricant blends were tested us­ing a wide range of dif­fer­ent tools and pro­cesses to de­velop the op­ti­mal recipe. 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. The ap­praisal of he lubricant’s per­for­mance dur­ing these tests was mea­sured in a va­ri­ety of ways. “Be­cause we’re push­ing the bound­aries of phys­i­cal and chem­i­cal science, in or­der to bet­ter un­der­stand how and why Cas­trol EDGE with TI­TA­NIUM FST™ in­creases the oil film strength of the lubricant, we worked with world-lead­ing sci­en­tists in renowned aca­demic in­sti­tu­tions that are spe­cial­ists in ex­am­in­ing ma­te­rial prop­er­ties in ex­treme en­vi­ron­ments,” ex­plains Gareth Dowd, Ex­pert Tech­nol­o­gist of Cas­trol. “THESE RE­SEARCHERS EM­PLOY AD­VANCED TOOLS TO IN­VES­TI­GATE THE BE­HAV­IOUR OF THE LUBRICANT STRUC­TURE AT A MOLEC­U­LAR LEVEL UN­DER IN­CRED­I­BLE PRES­SURES. TO EX­PLAIN SOME OF THE PHE­NOM­ENA OC­CUR­RING WITHIN THE OIL AT THESE EX­TREME PRES­SURES THEY DE­VEL­OPED NEW SCI­EN­TIFIC TECH­NIQUES, AND PI­O­NEER­ING WITH TECH­NIQUES THAT HAVE NEVER BEEN USED BE­FORE,” CON­TIN­UES GARETH DOWD. Such are the lengths that Cas­trol goes to so that mo­torists can be ab­so­lutely con­fi­dent that their en­gine will per­form how­ever and when­ever the driver de­mands. ^Based on tri­bo­log­i­cal tests.*in our test­ing, Cas­trol EDGE with TI­TA­NIUM FST ™ gave up to 15% lower fric­tion than the same Cas­trol oil with­out TI­TA­NIUM FST ™. Prod­ucts rep­re­sent­ing 61% of our 2012 sales vol­ume were tested.**in in­de­pen­dent tests of en­gine wear, Cas­trol EDGE oils with TI­TA­NIUM FST ™ main­tained its film strength more than 140 hours longer than the same Cas­trol oils with­out TI­TA­NIUM FST™. ***In our vari­able speed Fluid Strength Test, Cas­trol EDGE with TI­TA­NIUM FST ™ gave up to 45% less metal-to-metal con­tact than a ma­jor com­peti­tor’s prod­uct. Prod­ucts rep­re­sent­ing 61% of our 2012 sales vol­ume were tested.
