Marine oil by ADDINOL - engine oil for boat engines

With the series ADDINOL AquaPower we have developed a comprehensive product range for lubricants in the field of leisure boats. By meeting numerous specifications and approvals, the oils are suitable for use in international waters. It makes no difference whether you drive a boat in fresh or salt water or whether you have to supply a 2-stroke or 4-stroke engine with lubricants. Our engine oils are approved for many boat engines.

List of supported boot types:

  • Low speed displacers - Small boats of 4-10 meters and 3-20 hp or large boats/yachts of 8-25 meters and 20-150 hp
  • High speed gliding boats - Small boats with 5-10 meters and 20-1000 hp or large boats with 10-25 meters and 200-3000 hp
  • Sailboats with auxiliary engines (5-15 hp) or inboard engines (15-70 hp)

Properties of marine oils

Engine oils for boats must meet the following requirements in order to be used in motor boats, yachts and jet skis:

  • Above average corrosion protection
  • Load capacity of the lubricating film at high speeds and rpm
  • Usability in fresh and salt water
  • Best lubrication with optimum power transmission
  • Excellent engine cleanliness due to best cleaning ability
  • Reliable wear protection for long engine life

The lubricants of the ADDINOL of the AquaPower series have been especially adapted to these complex applications. As a result, they meet and exceed numerous specifications of major organizations.

Important specifications for engine oils for boats

The NMMA (National Marine Manufacturers Association) from the USA is the leading trade association for manufacturers of boats, marine engines and accessories of all kinds. The institute promotes and supports the recreational boating industry. The standards they set for boats, yachts, boat trailers, accessories and oils are recognized worldwide. The demands on two-stroke and four-stroke outboard engines are subject to strict criteria.

The following specifications for marine oils are important:

  • NMMA TC-W3
    • Specification for engine oils for use in two-stroke outboard engines
    • Focus on reducing exhaust emissions and extending engine life
  • NMMA FC-W
    • Specification for engine oils for use in four-stroke outboard engines
    • Focus on reducing exhaust emissions and increasing fuel efficiency
    • Makes extreme demands on corrosion protection

In addition, the classification and approval of engine oils for boats is carried out by other well-known institutions similar to the specifications for engine oils for cars:

  • SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) specifies viscosity classes for the oils, which provide information on the operating temperature and flowability of the oils
  • ACEA (Association des Constructeurs Europeens de l'Automobile) publishes specifications for inboard engines on watercraft
  • API (American Petroleum Institute) issue approvals for two-stroke engines (API TC), four-stroke engines (API SM) and transmission oils (API GL 3 to 5)
  • JASO (Japan Automobile Standards Organization) defines approvals for Japanese boat engines
  • ISO (International Organization for Standardization) also publishes specifications for two-stroke engines in Europe
