[Automotive News]


Headed over to the Petronas Twin Towers on 24 Sept 2019 for PETRONAS Lubricants Marketing Malaysia’s (PLMM) launch of their new range of PETRONAS Syntium with °CoolTech™ lubricants formulated to fight against excessive engine heat for better engine performance and efficiency.  

The range comprises the premium low-viscosity PETRONAS Syntium 7000 Ultimate Series featuring PETRONAS Syntium 7000 Hybrid with °CoolTech™, the company’s first oil for hybrid engines, marking PLMM’s entry into the fast-expanding hybrid vehicle market. 

“The new range has been formulated from our experience working with the best in motorsports, the Formula One race, where optimum engine performance is key. In this regard, the °CoolTech™ technology has been developed to help cool critical engine parts so that the machine can run efficiently even when under pressure. Today, we are pleased to bring this technology developed from the track to Malaysian roads to benefit our everyday drivers,” said Dato’ Sri Syed Zainal Abidin Syed Mohamed Tahir, PETRONAS Dagangan Berhad’s Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer and PETRONAS Vice President, Marketing, Downstream Business.

Meeting the latest API SN PLUS Specification and protecting against Low-Speed Pre-Ignition (LSPI) for turbo charged direct injection gasoline powered vehicles, the other oils in the series include the new PETRONAS Syntium 7000 0W-16 with °CoolTech™, PETRONAS Syntium 7000 0W-20 with °CoolTech™, PETRONAS Syntium 3000 5W-30 and PETRONAS 800 5W-30 °CoolTech™.

It was my first time being in one of the towers, and the experience was even more special with Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Motorsport’s Formula One Driver and 5 time World Champion, Lewis Hamilton gracing the event on a pit-stop in Kuala Lumpur after the Singapore Grand Prix. Also present were PETRONAS Lubricants International (PLI) Managing Director and Group Chief Executive Officer, Giuseppe D’Arrigo, as well as Chief Technology Officer, Eric Holthusen.

“PETRONAS Syntium plays such a crucial role in the cooling of our engines and supports us in achieving results on track. The teamwork between our technical organisations has been outstanding, and it’s reassuring to know that we have the best and most reliable fluids for our engines. It makes it easier to stay focused on our ultimate goal and achieve the best result for the team on the race track,” said Lewis Hamilton.

PETRONAS Syntium with °CoolTech™ technology is designed to cool critical engine parts for optimised engine performance, and uses technology derived from Petronas’ partnership with the successful Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Motorsport team which won the FIA Formula One™ World Constructors’ Championship over the last five years.  

Formulated for modern driving conditions, PETRONAS Syntium with °CoolTech™ technology is developed with strong oil chains to defend against excessive engine-damaging heat, optimizing fuel efficiency and keeping engines cool so that drivers, too, can keep their cool.

PLMM has been aggressively expanding its presence across Malaysia with PETRONAS brands now available at more than 1000 retail outlets and 3,000 independent workshops across the country.
