Barnaby Ngai, category portfolio manager for heavy duty engine and driveline oils for Petro-Canada Lubricants, says Duron UHP 5W-30 (API CK-4 5W-30) is expected to launch in the third quarter of this year while Duron Advanced 5W-30 (API FA-4 5W-30) product is scheduled to debut late next year.

Last month, Chevron Lubricants said the company expects to roll out its Delo 400 XSP SAE 5W-30 and 5W-40 (both API CK-4) full synthetic products this summer as the company continues its focus on the transition for its customers to Delo 400 XLE SAE 10W-30, Delo 400 SDE SAE 15W-40.
