Phoenix has joined the world’s major oil brands as it managed to list six of its lubricants in the Japanese Automotive Standards Organization (JASO) Engine Oil Standards Implementation Panel, and seven in the American Petroleum Institute (API).
Based on the physical and chemical properties of the Phoenix lubricant products, which have passed the clutch friction test included in the JASO T903:2016 requirements, the homegrown oil company was able to register four motorcycle oils and two scooter oils under its Cyclomax line.
“The JASO classification of our Phoenix Cyclomax brand has always been part of our strategy to promote the excellent quality of our lubricants. After five years, it has now been accomplished, and all this is in line with our pursuit to give the best experience to our customers,” said Phoenix General Manager for Lubricants Sales and Distribution Jay Mujar.
Phoenix’s Cyclomax Racing 4T 10W-50, Cyclomax Syntech 4T 10W-40, Cyclomax Titan 4T 20W-40, and Cyclomax Force 4T 20W-50 were given the MA2 rating, which means these products can deliver higher clutch frictional performance. Meanwhile, Cyclomax Scooter Syntech 10W-30 and Cyclomax Scooter Titan 20W-40 were given the MB rating for the products’ ability to deliver friction performance resulting in fuel economy.
With this achievement, the aforementioned Phoenix products are now officially registered and classified by JASO, and will soon have the emblem of the organization on the packaging. Composed of major vehicle manufacturers in Japan, JASO is a quality standard classification entity for engine oils.
Aside from JASO, API has also recently recognized seven other Phoenix lubricants. After Phoenix earned its first API approval in October with the Accelerate Super G 15W-40, it was able to register six other products the following month. Accelerate Racing 5W-30 (API SN), Accelerate Syntech 5W-40 (API SN), Phoenix Zoelo Extreme 15W-40 ( API CI-4/SL), Phoenix Zoelo Syntech 10W-30 (API CI-4) Zoelo Max 15W-40 (API CH-4/SL), Zoelo Powertech 5W-40 (API CJ-4/SN) are now listed in the API Licensee Directory, and will soon be packaged with the API donut symbol.
Encompassing multiple segments in the oil and gas industry, API is considered as the most recognized certifying body for automotive lubricants with over 600 members and more than 700 standards to enhance operational and environmental safety, efficiency, and sustainability.
“Now, more than ever, our customers can expect excellent quality from our lubricants as two of the world’s esteemed motor oil standard classification organizations have recognized our products. JASO has rated our motorcycle oils, while the quality of our main engine oils is now fully backed up by API,” said Asst. Vice President for Technical Services and QAPD Jaime Diago.
Phoenix engine oils and lubricating products are available in Phoenix gas stations and its network of retailers nationwide.
