BRP launches new lubricants and boat-care products


BRP introduced a new line of care products and lubricants under its XPS brand. The company said in a statement that the 20 lubricants and 21 care products will work with all brands of marine and powersports applications.

“The investment to develop this expertise is huge; only an OEM that has access to the staff, test equipment, latest advanced technologies and large vehicle fleets can afford to do it,” the company said in the statement. “BRP’s best engine, driveline and materials engineers, and the best lubricant and chemical engineers are tasked with ensuring BRP vehicles and engines deliver outstanding performance over the long haul. That mandate has expanded to include lubricants and care products for all motorized recreational brands.”

The XPS product line includes synthetic oils; hull cleaners for personal watercraft, fiberglass and aluminum boats; washes and waxes; degreasers; and other products. BRP said many of the lubricants were tested in racing conditions.
