Petronas, one of the world's leading oil companies, is also a key player in the lubricant market. To improve the performance and efficiency of the mechanical parts, to protect the transmission systems from wear and to extend the service life, the company released its new Tutela Transmission Fluids range in Turkey.
Producing lubricants to meet ever-increasing performance levels and industry standards in automotive technologies, Petronas launched its transmission fluids range Tutela. The Tutela range has been developed separately for automatic (ATF), automated manual and manual (MTF) transmission systems including the dry type DCT, and axle, differential and direct gear systems. It helps to increase the performance of vehicles with a wide range of products at different performance levels. Petronas offers a range of transmission oils in 5 different categories: cars, light commercial vehicles, heavy commercial vehicles, agricultural machinery and construction equipment.
Offers advantage to vehicle owners and fleets
Being aware of the fact that the performance of a vehicle is not just about the engine, Petronas reduces friction while increasing fuel efficiency with Tutela Transmission Fluids. The optimum friction feature in fluids disperses the resulting temperature and compensates for energy loss. Its anti-abrasion and anti-surface deterioration structure extends the life of the transmission system and maintains differentials with exceptional sudden load durability. Suitable for use in multiple applications with its optimum chemical properties and viscosity, Petronas Tutela also functions as clutch fluid in many transmissions. Tutela improves drivers’ comfort by making gear shifts smoother and reducing vibration and noise with its synchromesh compatibility, vibration reducing structure and torque transmission capacity. In addition, Tutela range protects the transmission system even below zero degrees, helping smooth shifts from the moment the engine starts. In commercial vehicles, thanks to its thermal resistance, Petronas Tutela provides longer maintenance intervals by keeping intact under thermal and mechanical stress, thus reduces maintenance costs and work losses due to failures.
Petronas Tutela range also contains solutions that meet the needs and expectations in today's automotive world, where electric vehicles are becoming widespread. It offers lower electrical conductivity, the ability to cope with high temperatures, high thermal conductivity and low evaporation characteristics.
Tested on more than 150 vehicles
Petronas launched the Tutela range with an investment of 12 million dollars. The company carried out product tests with more than 150 vehicles in automobile, minibus, truck and bus grades in the development phase. During the development of Tutela transmission oils, 35 million km of field trials were made, while only for Tutela Multi MTF 700 product, 850 thousand km of field tests were conducted in 37 automobile models representing 21 OEMs in 2 years.
