Black Bear SHD 15w40


♦ BLACK BEAR SHD ENGINE OIL SAE 15W-40, A.P.I. CK-4 is a highly advanced Heavy Duty engine oil that is enhanced to provide even longer engine life to all diesel and gasoline engines. This oil meets and well exceed the most stringent engine tests, old and new.

♦ Black Bear SHD SAE 15W-40 is versatile engine oil capable of handling the most severe on and off road low emissions!

EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) equipped engines produce a higher level of soot in the engine oil which results in thickening. Soot thickening control is continuing to be a focus of our engine oil technology. Our highly active ashless dispersant technology addresses this concern better than ever before. Specially boosted oxidation protection is added to our SHD 15W-40 CK-4 engine oil to further enhance the high performance additive chemistry.

DPF (Diesel Particulate Filtration) requires a lower sulfated ash engine oil which lowers the possibility of filter blockage. The combination of high ash performance additives employed for EGR alone are not suitable to handle this new challenge. Black Bear has taken an enhanced low ash / high performance approach to these varied engine requirements.

Black Bear starts with a higher quality virgin Group ll Base Oil that is far more resistant to oxidation thickening. SHD 15W40 CK-4 motor oil uses the latest CK-4 additive technology that improves oxidation performance by 60 percent over the older CJ-4 fluids. Use -of this higher performance ashless technology allows maximum use of highly effective ash containing combatants. Our overall low ash combination keeps all engines running cleaner and longer with trouble free operation.
