Q8Oils Lubricant base Oils

Mineral oil

Mineral oil is made by distilling and refining crude oil. Its properties depend largely on the quality and consistency of the crude oil from which it is refined and on the refining process itself.

Synthetic oil

Synthetic oils are free of impurities and generally have a higher viscosity and better oxidation stability than mineral base oils, resulting in a better and longer lasting performance. The properties of synthetic oil are determined entirely by its manufacturing process. 

Semi-synthetic oil

Semi-synthetic oils are blended from a combination of mineral and synthetic base oils, which provide some of the benefits of synthetic oil.
