We’re pushing the limits of sustainability and performance beyond the “standards”
Of course, the performance of any lubricant depends upon the quality and performance of its base oils.
That’s why we go beyond certification “standards,” and put the sustainable motor oils and sustainable lubricants made from our SYNTAINICS® base oil technology to the test—off the rig, and out of the lab. And we make sure they provide outstanding performance in some of the most demanding, real-world applications.
CARE FOR CLIMATE® Racing Team
The world's fastest R&D lab for sustainable lubricants
PURAGLOBE is the proud sponsor of the CARE FOR CLIMATE® Racing Team—winners of the legendary 24-hour Endurance Race (AT Class) at Nuerburgring, Germany in 2017, 2018, and 2019 .
In 2017, from the starting line to the winner’s circle, the CARE FOR CLIMATE® Porsche GT4 was running with sustainable SAE 5W50 engine oil and DCT fluid both made with PURAGLOBE Group III base oil technology.
In 2018, we pushed the limits of sustainable lubricants even further. The team raced their Porsche GT3 with an advanced, sustainable SAE 5W40 engine oil made with SYNTAINICS® base oil technology.
And in 2019, the team put a cutting-edge 0W40 engine oil to the test—the first fully-synthetic 0W40 made with SYNTAINICS® technology developed and tested at Nuerburgring.
For us, working with the CARE FOR CLIMATE® Racing Team is like having the world’s fastest R&D lab for sustainable lubricants and base oil technology. It helps us develop winning formulations. And helps us prove that sustainable motor oils and lubricants made with SYNTAINICS® technology provide outstanding performance—even under the harsh conditions of 24-hour, high-speed endurance racing.
Penz13 Racing Team
Sustainable, High-performance Motorcycle Lubricants
Nothing can be more thrilling—or frightening—than speeding through a curve on two wheels barely hovering above the asphalt. Yet that’s what Rico Penzkofer and the members of his Penz13 motorcylce racing team do lap after grueling lap on the most demanding courses in the world.
PURAGLOBE is also proud to sponsor the Penz13 Racing Team—who help us test the performance of our sustainable motorcycle engine oils and lubricants. The Penz13 team has been putting a sustainable 10W50 motorcycle engine oil and other lubricants made with SYNTAINICS® base oil technology to the test throughout the 2019 racing season.
Fine-tuning Sustainable Lubricants & Greases
Bicycle racing doesn’t involve an engine. But it certainly demands performance from both man and machine—and intricate, high-performance lubricants and greases—to win.
PURAGLOBE is proud to sponsor pro-racing cyclist Daniel Harnisch. Aside from helping to promote the CARE FOR CLIMATE® initiative, Daniel puts some of our most nuanced lubricants to the test, including our sustainable, precision chain lubricants and hub greases made from our fully-synthetic SYNTAINICS® Group III/III+ base oils.
