WHY PC-11 ?
The next generation of heavy duty engine oils in coming, establishing new industry standards to deliver significant improvements in engine protection and fuel economy.
Output on the market
CK-4 & FA-4
Both deliver superior performance over current oils.
Backward compatible, superseding API CJ-4.
For modern engines only, with fuel economy benefits.
Better protection against wear
HDEO are evolving for the better to deliver a cleaner and more durable oil category. Proposed Category 11 (PC-11) oils will be more robust and resistant to wear.
Using FA-4 oils will improve fuel economy while also lowering carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
Fuel economy benefits
Changes to the oil : lower viscosity oils.
Customers benefits : Better fuel economy benefits without sacrificing engine protection.
Changes to the oil : Increases resistance to shearing under severe stress which causes viscosity decrease and increased wear.
Customers benefits : Better protection when coping with higher loads of next generation engines. Risk of oil pressure loss is diminished.
Changes to the oil : enhances resistance to oxidation which degrades the oil, causing harmful sludge and viscosity increase.
Customers benefits : Better protection of next generation engines operating at higher temperatures.
Changes to the oil : Reduces bubbles in the oil which hampers the ability of the oil to cool and protect an engine.
Customers benefits : Better engine efficiency and protection.
