Lanka IOC PLC, the marketer of petroleum fuels and lubricants introduced Nitrogen Gas instead of the standard air to inflate vehicle tyres.
Chairman, Lanka IOC S.V. Narasimhan said Nitrogen gas has been used to inflate the tyres of racing cars, aircraft and heavy commercial vehicles due to its many benefits. It is for the same reason that the world is now moving towards using nitrogen gas for normal passenger cars and 2-3 wheelers.
Nitrogen, a colourless, odourless, tasteless and non-toxic gas that forms about 78 percent of the Earth s atmosphere, provides many benefits over compressed air for inflating tyres. It reduces the tyre s running temperature, improves the ride quality, increases tyre life, keeps tyre pressures more constant, slows the rate of pressure loss and doesn t react with the tyre and rim materials he said.
The company also extended its customer base launching a car care service package Servo Express together with 3M recently.
We have diversified our business into different sectors with the purpose of providing excellent customer service. Mainly we have three service categories, Xpress care, Xpress check up and car detailing. For car detailing service we have partnered with 3M Sri Lanka and we have 3M trained service staff to provide excellent car detailing service to our customers, Narasimhan said.
