"In the upcoming bauma CONEXPO INDIA 2018, GS Caltex (a 50:50 JV between Chevron USA and GS Holdings South Korea) will display its strength with its Kixx LUBO and its technological advancements and form strategic partnerships. Kixx LUBO, a famous name in base oils, is a combination of the GS Caltex family brand Kixx and lube base oil. The Kixx name originates from the etymology "kick" to describe speed, strength, and dynamism."

Industrial demand is moving towards HVI hydraulic fluids and high oxidation stability turbine oils.

OEMs have been under considerable pressure to offer engines that are more durable, more fuel-efficient and produce less emission. New legislative mandates along with exhaust after-treatment system and engine hardware changes are creating harsher conditions in which lubricants are operating and affecting the overall performance of the oil.

To maximize lubrication effectiveness, minimize cost, and reduce the risk of application-induced failure, the appropriate choice of lubricant is essential and needs to be determined by the nature of the environment in which it will be used. Different types of lubricants excel at various uses, depending on their precise combination of ingredients and formulation.

The need for lubricant marketers to meet more stringent regulatory standards and challenging specifications is growing. The ongoing shift to higher quality automotive lubricants is driven mainly by the automobile industry’s increasingly demanding requirements such as severe vehicle emission standards. Since more than 80% of the content of lubricants consists of base oil, higher quality base oil is essential for producing higher quality lubricants.

GS Caltex Group II/III base oils give optimal solution for top quality lubricants, which conventional base oils are not able to provide.

The high-performance lubricants from GS Caltex offer reliability at all temperatures, lower oil consumption, significantly lower fuel consumption, and extended service intervals. Whenever engines and gearboxes run freer and more reliably, operating costs are lower because they consume less. And depending on operating conditions, just 1% lower fuel consumption means fuel savings of several hundred rupees per vehicle in a year.

Kixx D1 Platinum Plus
We recently launched PAO-based fully synthetic Engine Oils and Gear Oils for the Indian market.

Research and Development is the core strength of GS Caltex in developing product competitiveness for lubricants and polymers. GSC 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 are moving ahead in the market place with development of futuristic engine oils meeting API CK4 and FA4 categories with our own base oils.

GS Caltex Group II/III base oil has excellent low temperature properties and exceptionally bright white, clear, transparent qualities. The Group II/III base oil produced by GS Caltex 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 outcome of the latest cutting-edge hydrocracking technology.
