Meeting your challenges with our expertise.

When you’re trying to drive improvements, you need a partner with technical expertise in the Pulp & Paper industry. So at PLI, we’ve developed specialised products such as PETRONAS Circula PM to reduce maintenance costs and waste, and lower power consumption and CO2 levels. With your industry’s commitment to sustainability, that’s reassuring to know.

Strong partnerships, stronger performance

Superior lubricants allow machinery to operate at maximum efficiency, reducing costs and allowing equipment to perform better, for longer. Ask us about lubricants that require less frequent fluid changes.

Efficiency from your people

It isn’t only in your equipment where you’ll find more efficiency. PLI offer technical training for key personnel. As part of our PETRONAS Solutions, we educate maintenance teams in lubricant storage, handling, and best practices.
