What are vehicle lubricants
composed of?

Each car requires a specific lubricant depending on its characteristics and those of its engine. Lubricants are obtained from base oils, which are derived from petroleum. These bases contain additives in small quantities, which improve the quality of the product, its benefits and the type of application that is desired. 

What kind of lubricant does your car need?

The quality and performance of lubricants depend on the nature of the bases used, the improvements provided by the additives used and the physical-chemical characteristics of the finished lubricants. The most important oils according to the type of application are:

  • Oils for transmissions and gearboxes
  • Oils for industrial uses
  • Marine Oils
  • Grasas lubricantes (rodamientos)
