Global leader in automotive lubricants Castrol has announced the launch of its “highly anticipated” Castrol MAGNATEC with DUALOCK technology, which is now available in Africa and “promises to transform its consumer’s driving experience by providing nonstop protection at every start”.

The company has released the Castrol MAGNATEC with DUALOCK technology as a demonstration of its “unwavering commitment” to excellence and as a mark of dedication to producing products that deliver “excellent engine protection, efficiency and best performance”.

Castrol Africa marketing director Jennifer Heyes elaborates: “Castol has consistently set the standard, earning the trust and recommendation of mechanics in the industry. It is the result of extensive research and development, solidifying Castrol’s commitment to innovation and delivering performance to motorists worldwide.”

She notes that Castrol MAGNATEC with DUALOCK technology embodies the brand’s “pioneering spirit, combining cutting-edge innovation with a sleek design”.

The ‘Can of the Best’ campaign – with the Castrol MAGNATEC with DUALOCK technology released to celebrate the campaign’s twentieth anniversary – further entrenches Castrol as “the leading partner for automotive enthusiasts and professionals alike”.

She says the lubricant’s technology features a unique blend of “intelligent” molecules that lock together, forming a strong and resilient protective layer that protects critical engine parts, even after the engine has been turned off.

The new product’s technology helps to significantly reduce engine wear and tear by up to 50% during the critical startup phase. Further, the product was formulated based on modern day traffic conditions, in which the average driver can stop and start as many as 18 000 times a year and spend up to a third of the journey time idling, placing up to 66% more load on critical engine parts as compared to driving on the open road.

Heyes notes that it also actively responds to temperature variations, providing protection under all driving conditions, and across various terrains.

“Castrol MAGNATEC with DUALOCK technology sets a new standard in engine lubrication, ensuring that your vehicle's engine is protected every time you start your car. It is the result of extensive research and development, solidifying Castrol’s commitment to innovation and delivering performance to motorists worldwide,” Heyes concludes.
