Chevron Oronite introduces new top-tier heavy-duty engine oil additive package

Chevron Oronite recently introduced OLOA 61011, its new top-tier additive package suitable for both heavy- and light-duty commercial vehicles meeting Euro V and Euro VI emissions requirements, as well as vehicles meeting EU stage IIIA, IIIB and IV, and U.S. Tier 4 emissions standards in a broad range of off-road applications.

According to a statement issued by Chevron, this new additive package is in line with their commitment to deliver value and flexibility to its heavy-duty engine oil (HDEO) customers, the company said in a statement. “This new additive package has been designed to help lubricant manufacturers respond to the latest market requirements in terms of emissions, fuel economy and durability,” said Teri Crosby, global product manager, Automotive Engine Oils, Chevron Oronite. “It meets the latest industry and OEM specifications and is ready for the next generation of heavy-duty specifications such as ACEA 2016, API CK-4 and VDS 4.5.”

The additive package is available in SAE 10W-40 and 10W-30 grades, both in low and high HTHS (high-temperature high-shear), and Chevron assures that it has been developed with the globally available paratone enhanced Olefin Copolymer (OCP) and is formulated with a majority of Group II base oil, which provides formulation flexibility to the blender and makes it a competitive alternative.

 Marta Sabater Ferret, automotive engine oil product line manager, Europe-Africa-Middle East Region, Chevron Oronite added, “The new package exhibits first-rate engine protection features. Its outstanding wear protection, ability to help keep pistons clean, and excellent corrosion control performance have been demonstrated in various tests.”
