Penn Grade 1® Partial Synthetic SAE 5W-30 and SAE 60 added to the High Performance Oil line
American Refining Group, Inc. (ARG) (the former Kendall Refinery), manufacturer of quality Brad Penn® Lubricants, announced the addition of Penn Grade 1® Partial Synthetic SAE 5W-30 and SAE 60 to its High Performance “The Green Oil®” line.
The Penn Grade 1® Partial Synthetic SAE 5W-30 High Performance Oil is targeted to the racing market for ‘crate engines’ as well as the classic car market and is available in 12/1 quart bottles and 55 gallon drum.
“The Penn Grade 1® Partial Synthetic SAE 5W-30 is ideally suited in today’s street/racing market ‘crate engines’ that require this viscosity. It contains strong detergent, dispersant and 1500 PPM ZDDP anti-wear additive to help protect critical engine parts,” according to Ken Tyger, Sr. Technical Service Representative for Brad Penn® Lubricants.
The Penn Grade 1® SAE 60 High Performance Oil will be aimed at fulfilling the need for both racers and older Harley Davidson® motorcycles that require an SAE 60 High Performance Oil. The SAE 60 is also available in 12/1 quart bottles and 55 gallon drums. The Penn Grade 1® SAE 60 High Performance Oil also contains 1500 PPM ZDDP which assists in providing vital protection to flat tappet and roller cams and safeguards various “hot spots” in the engine.
According to Tyger, “The Penn Grade 1® SAE 60 is suitable for use in gas, alcohol and nitro methane fueled engines where this viscosity is desired. The high viscosity of this oil allows excessive dumping of fuel into the lubrication fluid while maintaining critical protection for expensive, high performance racing engines and their components. The SAE 60 is suited for the heavier viscosity lubrication needs of the early classic motorcycles / engines like Harley Davidson® Flathead®, Knucklehead®, Panhead®, Shovelhead®, etc and others.”
“Our ever popular Penn Grade 1® High Performance Oils have really taken off since their introduction in 2001. Our customers recognize the benefit to using a product refined from Pennsylvania Grade Crude Oil that enables us to produce a unique base oil that clings on engine parts and contains elevated Zinc and Phosphorous levels. The vast knowledge from years of experience in formulating high performance oils is reflected in the outstanding formulation of the Penn Grade 1® High Performance Oil line,” stated Jennifer Taylor, Marketing Specialist for Brad Penn® Lubricants.
In addition to the newly introduced products, the Penn Grade 1® line also offers a variety of outstanding High Performance Oils available in several viscosity grades including, partial synthetic SAE 0W-30, partial synthetic SAE 10W-30, partial synthetic SAE 10W-40, partial synthetic SAE 15W-40, partial synthetic SAE 20W-50, SAE 30, SAE 40, SAE 50 and NITRO 70.
