Caltex™ Announces New Havoline® With Deposit Shield Motor Oil

November 03, 2009

KUALA LUMPUR, November 3, 2009 – Caltex™ today introduced its latest Havoline® with Deposit Shield motor oil, formulated to protect against deposit build up which can cause engines to underperform.  

“Deposit build up and increased viscosity caused by high engine temperatures can trigger interference with moving parts so they don’t slide past each other easily. In many ways it is like the sticky sensation you feel when walking with chewing gum stuck to the sole of your shoe. In a car engine it can sap engine power and lead to long-term engine-harming effects. Havoline® with Deposit Shield simply helps prevent deposits from building up in the first place, much like a surface with a non-stick coating,” said Ashraff Ab. Rahim, Sales Manager, Singapore/Malaysia, Global Lubricants, Chevron Malaysia Limited.  

Piston ring wear and engine deposits can lead to loss in power and premature aging of engines. Common occurrences in cars, these problems are typically unseen and therefore go unchecked.  Havoline® with Deposit Shield’s secret is an advanced detergent formula that provides improved oil stability for increased engine protection. This formula works immediately upon contact with the engine’s moving parts, creating a protective coating that shields against deposit formation. This makes Havoline® with Deposit Shield a good choice for modern high efficiency engines operating in today’s demanding stop-and-go urban city traffic. 

The new formula also has exceptional viscosity control that helps maintain engine power and preserve fuel economy, while supporting the smooth-running operation of the engine.

“The new Deposit Shield formula improves on two key attributes that Havoline® is known for, outstanding protection and value,” said Ashraff. 

Havoline® with Deposit Shield range of products include Havoline® Formula, Havoline® Synthetic Blend and Havoline® Fully Synthetic. All are offered with a protection factor exceeding the latest and most stringent industrial standards (API SM) set by the American Petroleum Institute (API).  Consumers can select the most appropriate Havoline® Deposit Shield variant that is suitable to their vehicle and operating conditions. For the ultimate protection of high performance engines, Havoline® Fully Synthetic is recommended. 

While stocks last, customers who purchase the Havoline® range will also be entitled to free gifts. Packages include a Lock & Lock® Container Set for every purchase of a combo pack (Havoline® Fully Synthetic 4L + Brake Fluid (DOT 4) 0.5L + Coolant 1L); a 24” Auto Umbrella for every purchase of a 4L pack of Havoline® Synthetic Blend 10W-40; and two boxes of Havoline® Tissue Packs with every purchase of a 4L pack of Havoline® Formula 10W-30 or 15W-40. 

Chevron Malaysia Limited operates under its retail brand, Caltex™, which has been offering Malaysians high quality products and services for more than 70 years.
