HOUSTON (February 11, 2009) ConocoPhillips Company, the fourth largest U.S. lubricants supplier, today announced the introduction of Kendall Super-D XA with Liquid Titanium, a premium tier API CJ-4 diesel engine oil formulated with an exclusive liquid-titanium technology that provides reduced bearing corrosion, enhanced engine wear protection, and has increased oxidation stability. Kendall Super-D XA with Liquid Titanium is an enhancement to ConocoPhillips Company™s industry-leading API CJ-4 synthetic blend engine oil made from an advanced, low SAPS (sulfated ash, phosphorous and sulfur) technology, and is approved under the latest heavy duty engine oil specifications from major engine builders.
We are pleased to offer our customers Kendall Super-D XA with Liquid Titanium, the first and only multi-grade, heavy duty engine oil of its kind, which raises the bar for novel diesel engine oil technology, says Reginald Dias, Director, Commercial Products, ConocoPhillips Company. Kendall Super-D XA with Liquid Titanium is engineered from advanced high-performance additives and a blend of synthetic and high-quality Group II base stocks. We chose to add liquid titanium because it is a powerful additive that strongly bonds to metal surfaces at the molecular level, adding an extra layer of protection to further reduce wear on critical parts and help extend engine life. It also increases the oxidation stability of the oil, helping to prolong oil life during service. These product enhancements provide added value to fleet owners and operators by helping to improve engine performance, reduce maintenance, extend drain intervals, and protect the investment.
In addition to previously documented performance benefits, where the ConocoPhillips premium API CJ-4 engine oil was already proven to outperform leading competitive products in several key performance features, Kendall Super-D XA with Liquid Titanium features extra engine-protection characteristics including reduced wear of critical parts in the severe Cummins ISB test and reduced wear, less deposits and increased oil-oxidation stability in other industry standard engine tests and bench tests.
With the introduction of Kendall Super-D XA with Liquid Titanium, ConocoPhillips Company continues to be a leader in the heavy duty lubricants industry, says Dias. We are dedicated to exceeding our customers™ needs by providing them with the latest products that save them time and money, and ultimately make them more successful.
Kendall Super-D XA with Liquid Titanium replaces Kendall Super-D XA product in ConocoPhillips™ existing API CJ-4 heavy duty engine oil line, and is available now.
