GF-6 Performance, When Finishing First Matters
HiTEC® 11163 – When Performance Matters Most, Afton is There
As with all new ILSAC categories, products must also meet the requirements of existing vehicles, so it is reasonable to expect that GF-6 oils will show improved performance in other general performance areas versus current market GF-5— increasing engine protection in terms of wear, deposit control, oxidation and corrosion. This is the design philosophy behind the latest addition to the Afton engine oil product line, HiTEC® 11163 Passenger Car Engine Oil Additive package, a first intent GF-6 platform designed not only to meet the current targets for new engine designs, but to be robust enough to provide reliable pre-ignition and wear protection as automakers push the operational boundaries of new engine technology in the future.
Particularly in the area of pre-ignition, the Afton objective in addressing this need is a detailed understanding of the mechanism for, and control of, pre-ignition such that Afton technology can provide optimum—zero event—capability however tested. HiTEC® 11163 meets the ILSAC performance needs of OEMs in all viscosity grades through a single technology package, with no compromise in engine protection for SAE 0W-16 for the GF-6B specification at lower high temperature high shear (HTHS) viscosity.
Afton Chemical’s advanced GF-6 chemistry not only delivers performance, but also versatility and flexibility
HiTEC® 11163 offers extensive Group II and Group III base oil coverage, as well as viscosity modifier flexibility, including 25, 35 and 50 SSI OCPs - covering the full breadth of viscosity grades in a single package, enabling performance in both old and new vehicle designs.
Our unique additive package also provides enhanced wear, oxidation and cleanliness performance compared to previous GF-5 platforms, and beyond the minimum performance demands of the GF-6 specification. This design approach means that HiTEC® 11163 is extremely versatile, with performance demonstrated in both a wide range of viscosity grades, such as SAE 0W-16, and base oils, such as Group I, Group II, Group III and rerefined base oil types.
