Caltex launches high-performance DELO® 400 MGX engine oil

Chevron, marketer of the Caltex™ brand, unveiled its latest premium diesel engine oil, Caltex Delo® 400 MGX SAE 15W-40, to address commercial business needs while meeting stringent Philippine emission regulations. The revolutionary formulation constitutes a higher specification and is specially designed to comply with Philippine market requirements. It will benefit both new and old diesel engines and allow customers to utilize just one heavy-duty engine oil that operates efficiently in both high- and low-sulfur diesel fuel environments.

“Introducing the Caltex Delo® 400 MGX SAE 15W-40 to the Philippine market is proof of our commitment to provide customers with ground-breaking products that not only boost performance, but also reduce operating costs and maximize diesel engine durability,” said Lennard Kwek, Asia Pacific Marketing Manager, Chevron Lubricants.

The Caltex Delo® product range includes lubricants and coolants that provide premium protection, performance and bottom-line value for on- and off-road diesel-powered equipment. These products are utilized in all major heavy industries such as commercial transportation, construction, mining, agriculture and power generation.

Delo®’s industry-leading lubricants have logged 2.4 million kilometers and countless hours offering superior protection to diesel engine parts for smooth vehicle and equipment operations. Thoroughly field-tested in trucks using up to 5000ppm diesel fuel sulfur levels, the Caltex Delo® 400 MGX has demonstrated an exceptional performance capability in neutralizing harmful acids and retaining alkalinity in extended-drain operations.

Heavy industry players are grappling with challenges such as excessive occupational heat exposure and maintaining an age-diverse fleet operating in both high- and ultra-low sulphur environments. With the local launch of the Caltex Delo ® 400 MGX, an American Petroleum Institute (API) and American and European Original Equipment Manufacturers’ (OEM) standard compliant diesel engine oil, heavy industries can finally experience synthetic-like performance at the cost of mineral products, significantly reducing premium lubrication costs,” said Joseph Bronfman, Area Business Manager, Finished Lubricants Philippines & Vietnam.

Advanced formulation and innovative ISOSYN® Technology

Chevron uses ISOSYN® Technology in top-tier Delo® product formulation. ISOSYN® Technology combines premium base oils, high performance additives and the company’s formulation expertise to deliver excellent diesel engine part protection at a competitive value. The Caltex Delo® 400 MGX SAE 15W-40’s new advanced formula delivers excellent soot dispersancy, wear protection and sludge control to guard against loss of engine life and help reduce oil consumption.

Caltex Delo® 400 MGX SAE 15W-40 also has the added advantage of a single fleet oil, which reduces the need for multiple diesel engine oils. Specifically developed to meet local emission regulations, OEM requirements and local market performance specification, Delo® with ISOSYN® helps extend service protection and optimize engine durability and operating costs.

The newly launched Caltex Delo® 400 MGX SAE 15W-40 is currently available in drum and gallon packaging through our appointed distributors at the same price as Delo 400 MG’s SRP.
