New Castrol Activ: Castrol’s best formulation for continuous protection
Superior formulation with improved Actibond molecules
Castrol India Limited today announced the launch of New Castrol Activ.
New Castrol Activ is fortified with Improved Actibond molecules which cling to critical engine parts through all stages of riding and beyond, providing 50% better protection*.
Commenting on the launch of new Castrol Activ, Kedar Apte – Vice President Marketing, Castrol India said, “Modern riding conditions demand a lot from riders and their bikes. There are at least 10 million instances per month where a bike engine could get damaged whilst running. A bike requires continuous protection not just while riding but also during start up and even when the engine is off. The new formulation of Castrol Activ has Improved Actibonds that provide continuous protection during start up, riding and even when the engine is off. In summary, new Castrol Activ is Castrol’s best formulation for continuous protection.”
The superior formulation of new Castrol Activ is designed to protect the engine through all three stages:
- During start up – Most engine wear occurs during warm up, just after starting the bike. The improved Actibond® molecules in new Castrol Activ reduces warm up wear by 75%** thereby reducing wear and tear of vital engine parts
- When riding – New Castrol Activ with improved Actibond molecules fights deposits and provides superior engine cleanliness, to help ensure smooth running and reduce piston wear
- When the engine is off – By clinging to engine parts even when the engine is switched off, Castrol Activ provides excellent protection against corrosion that may occur due to humidity
New Castrol Activ meets API SL and JASO MA2 specifications. It is available in 1 litre and 900 ml packs.
