Shell Malaysia Trading Sdn Bhd recently introduced a new 18-litre pail for its best-selling Shell Rimula R4X heavy duty engine oil.

Shell Rimula Provides Triple Protection

With the introduction of the 18-litre pail, Shell Rimula R4X 15W 40 is now available in five different sizes to meet different customer needs.  The other sizes are the 209-litre drum, 20-litre pail, five-litre pail and one-litre pack.

Formulated with Shell’s ‘innovative Dynamic Protection technology’, the Shell Rimula R4X is seen as a favourite among driver-owners of small and medium trucks and heavy equipment operators. This engine oil provides Triple Protection, which is said to be proven to provide up to 50 per cent better acid corrosion protection in engine and laboratory tests and field trials under real-world truck driving conditions.

It also maintains strong protective oil films to keep critical engine components working, as proven in the Mack T-10 engine test.  It exceeds the API CI-4 specification by up to 30 per cent, providing enhanced wear protection for engine piston rings and cylinder liners.

Furthermore, it demonstrated up to a 50-per cent improvement in engine cleanliness and resists high-temperature oxidation, keeping engines free from deposits. This results in reduced engine sludge across various engine parts, as validated in key engine tests to meet US and European specifications.

According to Nyon Kam Yew, Shell Lubricants General Manager for Malaysia and Singapore, the introduction of the 18-litre pail was aimed at minimising wastage and enhancing the affordability of the popular Shell Rimula R4X.

“This new smaller pail was very well received when Shell introduced it in Vietnam and Thailand. The company believes customers in Malaysia would also appreciate the convenience of the new size. You could just pick it up and go from any authorised spare-part shop or independent workshop,” he said.

Despite the availability of more efficient and lower emission synthetic lubricants, mineral oils such as Shell Rimula R4X currently make up about 89 per cent of the heavy-duty engine oil market in Malaysia. Shell Malaysia said it aimed to step up efforts to heighten awareness of the benefits of using synthetic oils among its customers.

Shell continually works to address various misconceptions such as doubts on the ability of ‘thinner’ synthetic oils to offer critical engine protection and ‘higher’ price points among others. Numerous trials with customers in the transport and logistics sectors have proven that Shell Rimula’s synthetic range could offer superior wear protection, remain in grade for far longer and therefore, help extend oil drain intervals for lower total costs of ownership,” explained Nyon.

He also highlighted that the Shell Rimula R4 Plus, an entry-level synthetic technology heavy duty engine oil, would be a cost-effective next step up for fleet owners aiming to reduce the carbon emissions of their vehicles.
