Petro-Canada Lubricants announced immediate availability of its new Duron next generation line of PC-11 heavy-duty engine oils for both the CK-4 and FA-4 categories in four product tiers.

In the CK-4 category, Petro-Canada now offers three formulations in increasing levels of durability, engine protection, oil drain intervals and extreme temperature performance: Duron HP (High Performance) 15W-40, Duron SHP (Super High Performance) 10W-30 and 15W-40, Duron UHP (Ultra High Performance) 10W-40 and 5W-30.

The company also now offers its Duron Advanced FA-4 oil in 10W-30 and plans to roll out a 5W-30 formulation in the next 12 months.

“The new CK-4 and FA-4 oils represent the most significant change in the heavy-duty engine oil industry in the last decade,” said Barnaby Ngai, category portfolio manager for heavy-duty engine and driveline oils. “With the launch, we are one of the first [oil companies] with both product lines available globally.”

Petro-Canada Lubricants says performance tests showed the new Duron next generation CK-4 oils yielded a 53 percent improvement in tappet wear and 55 percent improvement in cam wear compared to previous-generation Duron-E CJ-4 oils.

To avoid potential misapplication during service oil changes, the Duron Advanced FA-4 engine oil has gold packaging, while the CK-4 engine oils are packaged in black or silver. The company also launched the educational website that contains FAQs, videos, product overviews and comparisons to the previous CJ-4 category oils to help owner-operators and fleet equipment managers make the right choices when switching to PC-11 oils.
