Taro® 40 XL

Marine Engine Oil

Taro® XL Series

Taro® XL Series lubricants are high-performance, high-BN, diesel engine oils for medium-speed trunk piston diesel engines fueled by residual fuels to a maximum Sulphur level of 4.5%.

Suitable Applications
  • Helps Wear Protection

High BN levels control cylinder liner wear effectively and help to protect bearingsrom corrosion. High-performance, antiwear additives provide excellent protection against adhesive wear for cams, camshaft and bearings. Taro® XL Series lubricants also provide a high degree of water tolerance and antifoam properties.

  • Detergent/Dispersant Properties
The specially formulated detergent and dispersant additive system provides outstanding piston cleanliness as well as control of fuel contaminants. This contributes to the reduction of both “hot” (piston lands and grooves, piston under crown, purifier preheaters) and “cold” (crankcase, cambox, rocker area, fuel pumps, purifier bowl) deposits.
  • Oxidation Stability
Oxidation inhibitors help to protect the oil against high thermal stresses and the engine parts from corrosion and reduce under-crown deposits while promoting lubricant life.
  • Rust Prevention
Helps prevent corrosion of engine parts when the engine is not in operation.
  • Balanced Additive Combination 

Contributes to minimal maintenance and downtime, long engine life and economical operating costs.

  • Taro® XL Series lubricants are blended from high-quality base oils and additives that provide an extra margin of protection against ring sticking, piston deposits and wear under severe operating conditions.
  • Taro® XL Series lubricants have very good viscosity control when used in severe high-temperature service, and their excellent BN retention characteristics help prevent corrosive wear over long periods of operation.
  • Taro® XL Series lubricants provide a high degree of water tolerance and have good water separation and base retention properties
  • Taro® XL Series lubricants are recommended for all types of trunk piston diesel engines burning residual fuels with a maximum sulphur level of 4.5%.
