Castrol’s Syntec has a fully synthetic base oil and dedicated additives package combine for hot weather performance. At high summer engine temperatures engine bearings and crankshaft rely on an oil film thinner than a human hair to prevent wear. Syntec’s continuous viscosity provides certain protection as the mercury climbs. As well Syntec’s additives keep engine surfaces free of dirt and deposits, as well antiwear agents prevent engine wear. Castrol also adds antioxidants to reduce the formation of deposits and sludge, viscosity improvers and antifoam agents reduce the air in the oil.
