The Story

For more than 20 years, Castrol MAGNATEC’s molecules have been protecting engines during warm-up. But that’s not the only risk that today’s engines face. 

Traffic congestion is getting more severe in an increasingly urbanized world. Drivers are experiencing more stop – start driving than ever before. Did you know that:
  • An average driver can spend upto 33% of urban journey time idling
  • Loads on critical engine parts during idle can be upto 66%# higher than when driving on the open road
#Testing carried out by university of Leeds
Constant decelerating, idling and accelerating increases microscopic engine wear, with metal fragments worn from the surfaces of critical engine parts turning into damaging wear particles.

Introducing NEW CASTROL MAGNATEC with DUALOCK MOLECULES

Building on the pioneering science of Castrol MAGNATEC’s intelligent molecules over 10 years of research and development by Castrol’s technologists- has led to DUALOCK technology, which is Castrol MAGNATEC’s latest breakthrough and a pioneering first in the lubricant industry
It combines a new molecule with Castrol MAGNATEC’s original intelligent molecules to improve wear protection. The original intelligent molecules still cling to critical engine parts to protect against warm up wear. The new molecule clings to protect against stop-start wear. They lock together at a molecular level to form a powerful force field of protection. As a result, warm up* and stop-start ** wear are each reduced by 50%
*Tested versus the sequence IV A API SN wear limit.
**Tested versus the CEC OM646LA ACEA wear limits
