We know how tough the roads can be. That’s why the range of Shell Rimula synthetic1 oils with Dynamic Protection Plus continue to provide the excellent performance your engine needs, for long-lasting protection across a variety of road and weather conditions.

Shell scientists developed the range of Shell Rimula synthetic oils1 with Dynamic Protection Plus. Dynamic Protection Plus Technology is a unique combination of Shell PurePlus Technology and Adaptive Additive Technology. For example Shell Rimula R6 LME delivers up to 51% better engine wear protection

What is Shell Rimula with Dynamic Protection Plus Technology?

Shell Rimula synthetic1 oils with Dynamic Protection Plus combine our Shell PurePlus Technology and Adaptive Additive technologies to create our top tier, heavy-duty diesel engine oils.

Why it’s good for your truck or fleet

Shell Rimula heavy-duty diesel engine oils have the synthetic ranges1 to combine these technologies, delivering increased benefits3 for your engine while maintaining durability in the harshest conditions.

The benefits of using Shell Rimula synthetic oils1 with Dynamic Protection Plus Technology vary per product. For Shell Rimula R6 LME, these include: 

Benefits

Increased fuel savings

Increased fuel savings 

Low viscosity could help to improve fuel consumption and the overall maintenance costs to your business.3 Utilising low viscosity oils means reduced fuel consumption because it reduces the energy lost in day to day applications.

Better protection

Better protection against engine wear

Less engine wear and increased durability is vital to avoid any unplanned downtime so you can get the most out of your engine and extend its life span. The anti-wear booster developed by Shell scientists provides better protection against friction in highly stressed areas of the engine.2

Longer oil drain intervals

Longer oil drain intervals

The formulation for Shell Rimula R6 LME delivers outstanding durability for extended oil drain intervals.4 Longer oil drain intervals could mean less vehicle downtime for you, keeping you and your equipment on the road for longer.

Cleaner pistons

Cleaner pistons

Cleaner pistons12 mean a smoother, more efficient engine. Shell Rimula R6 LME include advanced additives which give protection against deposits for extended oil-drain intervals4 and potentially delivering  maintenance savings for you.3 

Equipment compatibility

Emissions equipment compatibility

Efficiently running your engine means effectively managing the wellbeing of your business. After treatment devices such as Diesel Particulate Filters trap potentially harmful soot and ash combustion by-products before they can be released to the environment. Blocked filters increase fuel consumption, so the low-ash additive system in is designed to actively reduce filter blocking.5

Which products have Dynamic Protection Plus Technology?

The Shell Rimula R5 and R6 range use Dynamic Protection Plus Technology1, which could provide real fuel savings3 that can help lower your operation cost and provide protections that can help to reduce maintenance costs. 

Shell Rimula R6 LME

Shell Rimula Products

Shell Rimula Mineral Oils

Mineral oil is the fraction of naturally occurring crude oil with the right properties for lubricating engines. Combined with an optimised additive technology Shell Rimula mineral oil products provide robust engine oils for use in a range of vehicles. 

Shell Rimula Synthetic Technology Oils

Shell Rimula ‘synthetic technology’ oils make use of both synthetic and mineral base stocks to achieve higher performance levels than can be formulated from mineral oils alone.

Shell Rimula Fully Synthetic Oils

Shell Rimula fully synthetic oils are manufactured from 100% synthetic base stock and high quality additives to achieve higher performance levels than both synthetic technology and mineral oils.
