    The extra-long-life high performance Hydraulic Kixx HVL range is engineered to make equipment more responsive, operate faster and more efficiently. Its formulation helps prevent varnish deposits that can bog down the hydraulic system. This premium hydraulic oil hold up under higher pressure, and much longer than conventional oils. With premium hydraulic fluids, you gain improved performance while maximizing productivity and fuel efficiency* (*Actual productivity and fuel efficiency will vary depending on equipment type, load and other operation conditions)

    Managing Director & CEO, Rajesh Nagar mentioned, "It is important to get maximum performance and productivity out of your equipment. The role that hydraulic fluids can play in attaining those goals isn’t obvious and may be missing the mark. With most conventional hydraulic oils, equipment runs less efficiently; cycle times are longer; energy is lost. Conventional fluids force you to deal with shorter oil life."

    Kixx GearSyn GL-5 75W-90 is a synthetic, heavy-duty gear oil suitable for use in heavy-duty driven axles and differentials. It is designed for long-drain capability and formulated with a combination of synthetic base oils (Poly Alpha Olefin) and additives. High Viscosity Index and good low temperature fluidity help contribute to component protection across a wide temperature range.

    "With the above new launches in Premium Engine Oils, Hydraulic Oil and Gear Oil categories, GS Caltex will now be able to offer significant value to its premium customers. With significant growth in the Construction and Mining segment, we are bullish to grow significantly," added Nagar.

    Jayanta Ray, GM - Industrial & OEM informed, "Our focus was on showcasing our R&D capability, which is the core strength of GS Caltex in developing product competitiveness for lubricants and polymers. Our R&D facility, located near Seoul in South Korea, has developed many award-winning lubricants to forge partnerships with major OEMs and key accounts."

    "We also stressed on the strength of Kixx LUBO Base Oils and the technology advantages and our focus on establishing strategic partnerships. GS Caltex Group II/III base oil has excellent low temperature properties and exceptionally bright white clear transparent qualities, and is environment-friendly with low volatility, reducing oil consumption and improving fuel economy. GS Caltex offers high thermal and oxidation stability to support drain interval extension. All these advantages are the result from the latest cutting-edge hydrocracking technology," added Ray.
