Lubricant World - - PANORAMA WORLDWIDE -

Chevron Oronite af­firmed that it is ready for the May 2020 launch of GF- 6 with the in­tro­duc­tion of OLOA ® 55600, which has been thor­oughly tested in real- world con­di­tions, is com­pat­i­ble with hy­brids and in­cor­po­rates the com­pany's lat­est pas­sen­ger car mo­tor oil ( PCMO) tech­nol­ogy.

“PCMO spec­i­fi­ca­tions have seen a sig­nif­i­cant change in per­for­mance re­quire­ments over the last few years as we have moved from GF- 5 through API SN Plus, and now into GF- 6. Oronite re­mains fo­cused on be­ing a tech­ni­cal leader and sup­port­ing our cus­tomer's suc­cess in PCMO. Our lat­est flag­ship so­lu­tion, OLOA 55600, is built on an in­no­va­tive, ro­bust and proven PCMO tech­nol­ogy,” said Bar­bara Smith, Vice Pres­i­dent, Prod­ucts and Tech­nol­ogy, Chevron Oronite. “We are ready to de­liver this ex­cit­ing new prod­uct through our re­li­able, world- class sup­ply chain, and will con­tinue to work with our cus­tomers to ful­fill their per­for­mance needs dur­ing and after GF- 6 im­ple­men­ta­tion.”

OLOA 55600 de­liv­ers the in­creased en­gine pro­tec­tion and im­proved fuel econ­omy re­quired by the new ILSAC GF- 6 stan­dard at an ef­fi­cient treat rate and will pro­vide cov­er­age for dexos1, API SP and ILSAC GF- 6 A& B all through one ad­di­tive pack­age. In ad­di­tion, it pro­tects against low speed pre- ig­ni­tion ( LSPI), pro­vides ro­bust tur­bocharger pro­tec­tion, and is com­pat­i­ble with cars fit­ted with ga­so­line par­tic­u­late fil­ters. Cus­tomers will also en­joy the flex­i­bil­ity of wide- rang­ing base oil and vis­cos­ity mod­i­fier cov­er­age in blend­ing their fin­ished oil pack­ages.

“With over a mil­lion miles of test­ing, the OLOA 55600 plat­form is built on Oronite's in­no­va­tive cas­cad­able prod­uct ar­chi­tec­ture that pro­vides our cus­tomers with many op­tions for per­for­mance dif­fer­en­ti­a­tion and sim­pli­fied lo­gis­tics within their prod­uct lines.” said Teri Crosby, Global Prod­uct Line Man­ager, Au­to­mo­tive En­gine Oils, Chevron Oronite. “It's the lat­est ex­am­ple of our PCFlex ADD­van­tage, which rep­re­sents the value, per­for­mance and flex­i­bil­ity our cus­tomers can achieve by work­ing with our team of ex­perts.”

OLOA 55600 is for­mu­lated with their award- win­ning OLOA 55516 tech­nol­ogy in mind. Oronite plans to of­fer ad­di­tional flex­i­bil­ity to cus­tomers by mak­ing OLOA 55516 API SP and ILSAC GF- 6 A& B ca­pa­ble. Oronite will also of­fer this tech­nol­ogy with an em­bed­ded pour point de­pres­sant to in­ter­ested cus­tomers.
