Castrol RLX Super 40

Monograde diesel engine lubricant

DESCRIPTION

Castrol RLX Super 40 is a 5th Generation (LMOA) zinc and chlorine free engine crankcase lubricant which has been
specifically designed for the lubrication of diesel propulsion, diesel electric and stationary power generation installations
where a zinc-free lubricant is specified.

APPLICATIONS

Castrol RLX Super 40 is formulated to meet the requirements of engines manufactured by General Motors Electromotive
Division (GM-EMD), General Electric (GE) and ALCO. This grade is suitable for all engines fitted with silver bearings,
particularly those used in Marine and Offshore power generation sets.

ADVANTAGES
  • Optimum balance of detergency and dispersancy reduces ring sticking and engine deposits, resulting in cleaner
    engines that maximise operating performance. With extended oil drain intervals, engine downtime is further
    reduced.
  • Selected additive system provides excellent protection against wear and acid corrosion resulting in increased
    engine component life.
  • Exceeds detergency requirements of API CF and CF-2.
  • High viscosity index base oil allows control of oil consumption and maintains excellent oil film between bearings at
    high operating temperatures.
  • Castrol RLX Super 40 is fully compatible with other 5th generation (LMOA) lubricants.
