HD PORTFOLIO REFRESH & GHS

Helping you find the right products for your heavy commercial vehicle needs

In the U.S., our heavy duty product range has been developed to overcome the lubrication challenges faced by a vast range of sectors and applications. We are proud of our long heritage as a leader in lubricant technology, and we value the strong and lasting relationships we have built with our customers.  In order to remain at the forefront of the industry, we believe that we must simplify our product portfolio and create a borderless brand experience.  

It is important that you can find the core Castrol products that meet your needs.  With that in mind, we are refreshing the Castrol Heavy Duty product line to make it easy to navigate.  

Existing Castrol customers will see some changes to Castrol products including: 
  • Grouping together products with similar application and performance attributes
  • Renaming of some products
  • Changing the specification of some products
  • Phasing out some products to remove duplication or because of limited application
