Infineum M8220

Outstanding product designed for high BMEP engines

Energy demand is rising globally. Bridging the gap to low carbon future fuels, natural gas is seen as a greener source of energy, preferred over fossil fuels and nuclear energy.

Infineum M8220 is the next generation additive lubricant formulated specifically to deliver outstanding protection and durability in high efficiency stationary gas engines that must deliver more power and lower emissions.

The advanced formulation is being assessed against future needs and evolution via field testing with alternative gas including hydrogen and ammonia.
