Petro-Canada Lubricants has expanded its Traxon and Duron product lines with the launches of Duron Advanced 5W-30 and Traxon Synthetic 75W-85.
Duron Advanced 5W-30 is a fully synthetic formulation designed to meet and exceed the requirements of API FA-4. It has also been approved by the major diesel engine manufacturers Cummins and Detroit Diesel.
The Duron Advanced product line offers durable low viscosity, high performing synthetic and synthetic blend heavy duty diesel engine oils that are designed for emerging and future fuel-efficient engines. These oils provide enhanced fuel economy, durability, engine protection and shear stability for the latest heavy-duty engines.
In addition, Traxon Synthetic 75W-85 expands the existing Traxon Synthetic range providing fleet owners and operators with enhanced efficiency and long-lasting wear protection that can extend equipment life and reduce unplanned downtime and associated maintenance costs.
Traxon Synthetic 75W-85 is designed for easier start-ups and improved cold weather shifting for manual transmissions, hypoid gears and rear axles.
This low viscosity hypoid gear oil is designed to meet API Gear Lubricant Service GL-5 and API MT-1 Gear Lubricant standards and MACK GO-J for heavy-duty manual transmissions. It is also approved against the SAE J2360 Global Standard. Traxon Synthetic 75W-85 is suitable for use where Volvo 1273,12 (97312) and Meritor 0-76-J specifications are required.
