Component First Fill Lubrication

Expert solutions to help you to deliver reliability, consistency and economic competitiveness in an ever-developing automotive market.

Castrol’s Liquid Engineers recognise that the automotive industry is always changing and component producers are looking for solutions to ensure trouble free long term lubrication.

We also know there are higher demands with new applications, new materials and more severe conditions and environmental issues to deal with.

Our knowledge of the automotive industry is built on years of experience, which is why we consider ourselves at the forefront in working with organisations when it comes to developing products that meet their current and future needs.  As lubricants continue to play a vital role in ensuring the smooth operation of vehicles on the road, Castrol provide expertise in Constant Velocity (CV) joint greases and a wide variety of On-Car applications designed for lifetime lubrication.

Our expertise tells us that CV greases need to provide low friction and protect against wear for lifetime use, which is why the products we develop are capable of working under adverse conditions, varying from low to high-temperature applications. Our products are also designed to be compatible with elastomer and plastics, as well as able to provide environmental advantages.
