Pennzoil Platinum® and Pennzoil Ultra Platinum™ Full Synthetic motor oils with PurePlus® Technology work in two ways to protect the quality of your engine’s performance and maintain horsepower.
They keep your engine clean by removing performance-robbing deposits. This keeps important mechanisms from accumulating grime that will make them work harder and will wear away at their surfaces.
They also lubricate engine parts to help keep them operating at peak performance by reducing friction and keeping them cool and protected. The more friction placed upon moving parts, the more easily they wear down which can cause a chain reaction as other parts try to compensate for the energy lost. Since friction converts kinetic energy into thermal energy (heat) keeping the moving parts cool as well a lubricated is important to protect them from damage.
