Castrol MAGNATEC

Leading the fight against warm-up wear

Castrol MAGNATEC’s intelligent molecules, now ultra-refined, for protection you can see, hear and feel.
Up to 75% of engine wear happens while your engine warms up. Right from the start, Castrol MAGNATEC can solve the problem. Castrol MAGNATEC’s ultra-refined intelligent molecules cling to the engine, providing an extra layer of protection and dramatically reducing engine wear.

Demonstrate the superior protection

The unseen damage that’s eating away at your engine

Up to 75% of engine wear happens during warm-up, and that can take as long as 20 minutes.
During that time, the engine oil will not be at optimum operating temperature, and conventional anti-wear technology will not be active.

Castrol MAGNATEC’s intelligent molecules defy gravity

As you have seen, most engine wear happens during warm-up.

The breakthrough we have achieved is Castrol MAGNATEC’s intelligent molecules – molecules that cling to critical parts, providing an extra layer of protection from the start, and throughout warm-up.

> NEVER TOO LATE TO CHANGE
Even if you haven’t been using Castrol MAGNATEC, it’s worth making the change…

Instant protection from the moment you start

Engine protection we can prove

Up to 15x smoother

SEE the difference

The image shows two engine test parts from two identical engines. On the left, clear evidence of scratches can be seen. Compare that to the one on the right that was protected by Castrol MAGNATEC intelligent molecules. It is much smoother, with very few signs of wear.

HEAR the difference

We analysed the sound of critical engine parts with and without protection from Castrol MAGNATEC intelligent molecules. The result was a more than 1.5 dBA difference in sound pressure level in rig testing.

FEEL the difference

Engine parts protected with Castrol MAGNATEC intelligent molecules are 15 times smoother* than those without. In fact, they are far smoother than silk! Come and feel the difference with our new tactile icon on every pack.



99% agreed**

that critical engine parts protected by Castrol MAGNATEC intelligent molecules were smoother than those not protected by Castrol MAGNATEC.
