Shell Rotella energizes its portfolio of engine oils with ladder of protection

The Shell Rotella Energized Protection product portfolio is led by three heavy-duty engine oils that are part of a tiered ladder of protection.

Shell Rotella T5 10W-30 Synthetic Blend Technology, which delivers better fuel economy than T Triple Protection 15W-40 oil, expands the product line of this brand. A new formulation of T6 Full Synthetic offers improved viscosity protection, and T Triple Protection, which features an enhanced engine wear claim, completes the simplified portfolio. T5 and T6 will be available in the fourth quarter of 2009.

Shell Rotella Energized Protection engine oils are formulated with adaptive technology to provide targeted protection across all driving conditions—physically and chemically reacting to the ever-changing needs of an engine. Adaptive technology consists of molecules that, when under load and temperature stresses, form a protective layer on engine surfaces.

These oils provide protection in three critical areas:

  • Acid control—helps protect against corrosion from acids formed as fuel burns.
  • Deposit control—helps keep engines clean for optimum performance and long life.
  • Wear control—helps keep moving metal engine surfaces apart for long life.
Each of the top-tier Energized Protection engine oils meets the requirements of on- and off-highway equipment, including the latest vehicles fitted with diesel particulate filters (DPFs) and catalysts. All Shell Rotella multi-grade engine oils meet API CJ-4 standards.
