Caltex launches ‘Techron Glides’

The Caltex brand has reformulated its additive package with the addition of a new Clean & Glide technology. The new ingredients are specifically designed to clean and protect metal surfaces within the engine, thereby helping reduce friction and thus wear and tear between key engine components.

Chevron, which markets the Caltex brand, conducted laboratory tests and accumulated up to 600,000km of real world fleet tests to ensure the efficacy of the final formula.

The ability of the new formulation to protect metal surfaces was proven in the High Frequency Reciprocating Rig (HFRR) laboratory test. The standard diesel lubricity test was modified to assess the lubricating properties of gasoline. The results indicated that when compared to its predecessor in a controlled environment, Caltex’s new formulation with Clean & Glide technology was able to reduce metal wear and friction by an average of 38% and 41% respectively using gasoline from around Asia Pacific and South Africa. This is said to be important because Caltex with Techron is formulated to reduce friction in the upper cylinder area of the engine. With continued use, Clean & Glide technology will begin to build–up in the car’s crankcase lubricant to replenish friction modifiers that are consumed during normal operation. Separate laboratory tests simulating this build-up of Techron in the lubricant demonstrated that Clean & Glide technology can improve fuel efficiency by up to 3% when compared to the previous formulation.

The new Techron with Clean & Glide Technology is now available across all gasoline grades at Caltex service stations. Caltex Platinum with Techron is set to replace the Gold variant.
