Helicot Trading Company has begun its distribution of the patented, UK-manufactured engine care product, Cataclean in Hong Kong and Macau.
The company says the engine and fuel system cleaning technology in Cataclean enables drivers to reduce vehicle emissions and improve fuel efficiency, thereby helping to benefit the environment as well as offering a potential fuel cost saving.
It can be used in cars, vans, motorcycles and specialist heavy duty machinery.
It says independent tests and user testimonials have verified that Cataclean reduces exhaust emissions often by enough to make the difference between a vehicle failing or passing an MOT emissions test.
One real-world test, conducted on trucks working in challenging stop-start conditions at an Asian container terminal - independently validated by faculty at JMU, Liverpool - found that Cataclean resulted in an average reduction in emissions of 33.3% and fuel savings of 9.7%.
According to research conducted by The University of Hong Kong, the level of pollutants in the city air is substantially higher than levels found in other cities such as London and New York.
Jeremy Masters, Cataclean's regional representative for Asia said, “We are very pleased that Helicot Trading has become our distributor in Hong Kong and Macau.
"Helicot’s well-established presence in the key automotive and truck service channels in this market ensures that both our car and industrial product sales will have the opportunity to progress steadily in Hong Kong and Macau.”
