PETRO-CANADA LAUNCHES LUBRICANT PRODUCT LINE TO PLASTICS PROCESSING INDUSTRY IN RESPONSE TO INCREASING EQUIPMENT PERFORMANCE REQUIREMENTS

 

Mississauga, ON … Petro-Canada is offering a one-stop source of high-quality lubricants for plastics manufacturers looking for new ways to increase productivity and lower operating costs without jeopardizing product quality.

The company has launched a line of lubricants tailored to the needs of plastics processors.  The product line includes HYDREX hydraulic fluids, CALFLO AF heat transfer fluid, ULTIMA gear oils, PRECISION greases, and a wide selection of compressor fluids.  They are formulated for use in a variety of plastic processing applications including injection moulding, extrusion, blow moulding, thermoforming, and lamination.

 

“It is essential to use lubricants that can keep up with increasingly demanding operating conditions, including the extreme heat and extreme pressure experienced in the plastics processing industry,” said Brenda Jones, Category Manager, General Manufacturing, Petro-Canada.  “The lubricants that can best meet these demands are the ones that start with the purest base oils, which means virtually all the impurities have been removed to produce fluids that last longer and protect equipment better.  That means more uptime and ultimately lower costs.”

Petro-Canada uses the patented HT purity process to product 99.9 per cent pure, crystal-clear base oils, the purest in the world.  By removing the impurities that hinder the performance of competitive conventional lubricants, Petro-Canada ensures its products retain their fresh oil properties longer.  They have been using this technology for over 25 years, longer than conventional refiners who are only beginning to understand these quality levels.  Specialty additives provide for even longer fluid life, greater equipment protection, and smoother performance.  All of which reduces downtime and costs.

“By tailoring a line of lubricants made with Petro-Canada’s 99.9 per cent pure base oils to the needs of plastics processors, they know they are getting top quality lubricants for all their needs,” says Jones.  “It will also allow for inventory consolidation and simplify the ordering process.”

Petro-Canada, with offices in Canada, the U.S.A., and Europe, blends and packages more than 350 different lubricants, specialty fluids, and greases that are exported to more than 60 countries on six continents.  For more information about Petro-Canada, please call 1-888-284-4572 or e-mail lubecsr@petro-canada.ca.
