Build a better business with Petro-Canada lubricants. The full line that helps protect your bottom line.

Petro-Canada lubricants run long and hard through the toughest conditions. Extreme temperatures. Long hours. Demanding schedules. Remote locations. With all the challenges of the construction industry, the last thing you need is an equipment breakdown. Lost time means lost revenue and downtime costs can add up fast. Whatever construction jobs you’re facing, Petro-Canada lubricants keep you running smoothly and efficiently. We offer a complete line of lubricants formulated to ensure peak performance through all types of weather and conditions. Going with the right lubricants to protect your equipment can have a major impact on your bottom line. That’s why so many OEMs, maintenance managers and purchasing managers of construction equipment count on the industry-leading performance of Petro-Canada lubricants.
Performance that’s pure from the start. Petro-Canada has been creating advanced lubricants for more than 30 years. We use the patented HT purity process to produce 99.9% pure, crystal-clear base oils – among the purest in the world. Base oil quality plays a major role in dispersing engine soot and other impurities that can damage your equipment. Our products retain their fresh oil properties longer to deliver longer fluid life and greater equipment protection.
Petro-Canada’s Tangible Savings Solutions. At Petro-Canada, our job is to make your job easier. That’s why we formulate top-performing lubricants to keep your on-road and off-road equipment running longer and harder. You can count on long-lasting wear protection for your equipment, less frequent change-outs, and exceptional cold temperature performance. We help you improve equipment performance and reduce engine wear while increasing productivity. That means outstanding performance for your operation and tangible savings for your bottom line.
The proven soot-fighter. The soot-fighting performance of DURONTM heavy duty engine oils comes from the advanced Group II and Group III base oils plus special additives that help ensure DURON keeps its “fresh oil” properties longer. That means you get cleaner engines, less top-ups and fewer change-outs while keeping your heavy duty trucks and off-road construction equipment going longer under tough conditions, while reducing your maintenance costs.

The DURONTM-E product line-up is formulated to meet the challenges of ’07 low emissions engines (API CJ-4/SM) and older engines. DURON products are designed to meet the highest needs of pre-2007 engines.
Formulated for long-lasting performance. HYDREXTM hydraulic fluids last up to 3 times longer and offer up to 2 times better wear protection than the leading hydraulic oil brand.† HYDREX means more uptime, increased productivity and better energy efficiencies.†† Its long life helps extend drain intervals for reduced change-out costs. Its strong oxidative stability minimizes harmful sludge build-up that can lead to wear and shortened filter life. By protecting your equipment with HYDREX, you can reduce maintenance and mechanical failure, and prolong your equipment life.

For construction sites in environmentally-sensitive areas, ENVIRONTM is the ideal hydraulic fluid. It’s free of heavy metals, non-toxic, inherently biodegradable and recyclable. Its exceptional oxidation stability means longer oil life compared to competitive vegetable oil based products and conventional hydraulic fluids. That means fewer change-outs, plus less sludge and varnish deposits.

Petro-Canada also provides a full-line of transmission/hydraulic fluids, transmission/drive train oils, gear oils, greases, and automatic transmission fluids. Throughout the wide range of lubricants Petro-Canada offers for the construction industry, you’ll find there’s one thing in common: performance. All of our lubricants are carefully formulated to help keep your off-road and on-road equipment running smoothly to reduce equipment wear and maximize productivity.

Minimize Downtime and Optimize Performance with the Right Oil

A reliable and well-maintained gas-powered engine can lead to a healthier bottom line for plant operators. Operations and service managers need high performing products that have a proven track record of success under a wide range of conditions and should take a proactive approach in carefully selecting a gas engine oil (GEO) to help achieve ideal engine performance. In contrast with other fuel types, gas engines traditionally burn cleaner and hotter and operate at a constant speed. GEOs play a critical role in engine cleanliness and durability, which means they must be specifically formulated to minimize engine downtime, maximize drain intervals and optimize performance.

Natural gas engine oil

Petro-Canada introduces SENTRON 590 – the company’s enhanced nitration control natural gas engine oil. The product was specially formulated to extend oil life along with Petro-Canada’s engine optimization recommendations – by as much as 200 percent – in natural gas engines operating under severe nitrating conditions. This formulation will ultimately help operators reduce the need for frequent change-outs, minimize costly downtime and maximize productivity. SENTRON 590 has undergone comprehensive testing, including field trials in seven Caterpillar 3300 turbocharged and naturally aspirated natural gas engines used in gas gathering operations in Athabasca, Alberta. The collective field trials validated the performance of SENTRON 590 and the results were quite impressive. All engines continued to have excellent oil consumption and wear metal control and, in general, average drain intervals were substantially extended.


DURON-E Synthetic 0W-40 is an extension of Petro Canada’s next-generation, heavy duty engine oil (HDEO) product line. Specially formulated to help on-road and off-road fleets perform in the coldest conditions, DURON-E Synthetic 0W-40 features longer lasting protection in extreme cold temperatures, smoother start-ups, very good soot dispersion and top-up performance, and extended drain capabilities in addition to energy conservation through ease of start-up and less viscous drag. “Our number one priority is bringing quality lubricants to market in a timely manner, to ensure that our customer’s needs are met,” stated Paula Del Cas-tilho, category manager, Commercial Transportation Lubricants, Petro-Canada Lubricants. “Off-road customers in the mining, drilling, forestry and construction industries, for example, generally work in harsh environments. They were in need of an HDEO that could provide a number of performance benefits, including longer lasting protection in extreme cold temperatures, reduced viscous drag, exceptional soot dispersancy and extended drains. We formulated DURON-E Synthetic 0W-40 as the solution, providing all of these benefits and then some.


Petro-Canada has launched DU-RON*-E, their next-generation, heavy duty engine oil (HDEO) brand for the API CJ-4 category (formerly known as PC-10).
