The Castrol Magnatec Brand Story - Castrol SA

As a global business, Castrol develops engine oils and lubricants for a vast range of applications and industries – from car and motorcycle oils to specialist industrial lubricants for the marine and offshore industries.

For over 80 years, driven by technology, we’ve tested our engine oils in the most extreme situations – from rigorous lab and industry testing to the highly competitive world of motorsports.

Castrol MAGNATEC, one of Castrol’s leading engine oil brands, has been helping motorists protect their car engines for almost 20 years by offering instant protection from the moment you start. The intelligent molecules in Castrol MAGNATEC are specially formulated to cling to critical engine parts, and dramatically reduce engine wear.

Castrol MAGNATEC Molecules

It’s Castrol MAGNATEC’s intelligent molecules that truly set it apart from other engine oils. These ultra-refined molecular components cling to your engine throughout all driving conditions, and even when the engine is off.

When the engine stops, oil drains back to the sump, but Castrol MAGNATEC’s intelligent molecules don’t. They cling to critical engine parts like a magnet, providing an extra layer of protection from the start, and throughout warm-up.
