SAE 0W-20 API SN PLUS Fully Synthetic engine oil
Latest innovative automotive solution formulated with KNOCK GUARDTM Technology for LSPI Protection.
SUBANG JAYA, 3 July 2018 –UMW GRANTT INTERNATIONAL SDN. BHD. today launched the latest addition to its product line-up, the all-new GRANTT Stellar 8000 SAE 0W-20 API SN PLUS Fully Synthetic engine oil formulated with KNOCK GUARDTM Technology for LSPI Protection. The launch was officiated by Badrul Feisal Abdul Rahim, President & Group CEO, UMW Holdings Berhad, together with Megat Shahrul Azmir Nordin, President of Manufacturing & Engineering (M&E) Division, UMW Corporation Sdn. Bhd.
The all-new GRANTT STELLAR 8000 SAE 0W-20 is now formulated with “KNOCK GUARD™ TECHNOLOGY” for ultimate protection, performance and fuel economy in TGDI / GDI engines; providing users with LSPI protection, cleaner engines and better fuel saving.
“With more car manufacturers developing engines which are increasingly smaller, more efficient, more advanced and at the same time more powerful; this also creates more extreme operating conditions, especially for turbocharged gasoline direct-injection (TGDI) engines. This makes today’s engines more susceptible to Low Speed Pre-Ignition (LSPI) which causes internal engine damage and lead to engine failure. The GRANTT STELLAR 8000 SAE 0W-20 was engineered with this in mind to give drivers outstanding LSPI protection,” said Megat.
LSPI or Low Speed Pre-Ignition, is when early combustion occurs before normal spark-initiated combustion takes place. LSPI can cause severe damage to a vehicle’s engine, and is one of the most challenging factors in engine technology today.
Megat added, “Our goal is to design next generation lubricant technologies to provide a one-step solution to protect against LSPI and enable OEMs to continue their development of fuel-saving, low emission engines. We have a dedicated team of lubricant engineers, certified lubricant specialists and plant professionals who are focused on bringing the very best out of every molecule that goes into the GRANTT formula.”
The all-new GRANTT STELLAR 8000 SAE 0W-20 delivers more than 80% better engine protection against wear and tear. With its unique antioxidant additives to control oil thickening, the formula results in better flow to critical parts throughout the oil drain interval. This offers protection during cold engine start at low temperatures, while retaining viscosity benefits at higher temperatures and operating conditions. Its advanced dispersant and detergent system help to prevent sludge formation and varnish deposits for cleaner and efficient engine performance. Combined with the low viscosity oil, users can expect extra fuel savings.
GRANTT is created to meet the highest international standards with cutting-edge technology and innovative formulations. For the highest level of protection and performance, stringent tests and analysis are conducted at our certified ISO/IEC 17025 accredited laboratory. GRANTT’s commitment in producing products of exceptional quality is supported by the use of American Lubricant Technology in the R&D phase. In addition, GRANTT has surpassed the American Petroleum Institute (API) as well as the European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (ACEA) and key OEMs requirements.
In conjunction with the launch, GRANTT also introduced other new automotive solutions:
GRANTT Quasar SAE 10W-40 API CI-4/SL (7 litres)
A Synthetic Blend grade on top of the current SAE 15W-40 API CI-4/SL mineral grade currently offered in the market, which gives outstanding protection against engine wear, maintains engine power over a longer oil drain interval in most extreme conditions and protects the Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) in low emission engine.
