ConocoPhillips Company, the fourth-largest U.S. lubricants supplier, on January 28 announced the introduction of Guardol ECT with Liquid Titanium, a premium tier API CJ-4 diesel engine oil formulated with an exclusive liquid-titanium technology that provides enhanced engine wear protection, reduced bearing corrosion, and has increased oxidation stability. Guardol ECT with Liquid Titanium is an enhancement to ConocoPhillips’ industry-leading API CJ-4 synthetic blend diesel engine oil made from an advanced, low SAPS (sulfated ash, phosphorous and sulfur) technology, and is approved under the latest heavy duty engine oil specifications from major engine builders.
“Guardol ECT with Liquid Titanium is engineered from advanced high-performance additives and a blend of synthetic and high-quality Group II base stocks. It is the first and only multi-grade, heavy duty engine oil of its kind, which raises the bar for novel diesel engine oil technology,” says Reginald Dias, director of commercial products, ConocoPhillips Company. “Liquid Titanium is a powerful additive that strongly bonds to metal surfaces at the molecular level, adding an extra layer of protection to further reduce wear on critical parts and help extend engine life. It also increases the oxidation stability of the oil, helping to prolong oil life during service. These product enhancements provide added value to fleet owners and operators by helping to improve engine performance, reduce maintenance, extend drain intervals, and protect the investment.”
As part of its superior engine-protection features, Guardol ECT with Liquid Titanium shows reduced wear of critical parts in the severe Cummins ISB test. It also shows reduced wear, less deposits and increased oil-oxidation stability in other industry standard engine tests and bench tests. That is on top of the previously documented performance benefits, where the ConocoPhillips premium API CJ-4 engine oil was already shown to outperform leading competitive products in several key performance features.
“Providing today’s heavy duty diesel equipment operators with an advanced lubricant like Guardol ECT with Liquid Titanium further demonstrates our position as a leader in this industry,” says Dias. “ConocoPhillips continues to make our customers a priority by offering them new, technologically advanced products and valuable resources and tools to save time and money, and ultimately make them more successful.”
Guardol ECT with Liquid Titanium replaces Guardol ECT product in ConocoPhillips’ existing API CJ-4 heavy duty engine oil line, and is now available.
