Highest quality ? Lube Base Oils

Highest quality ? Lube Base Oils

The need for lubricant marketers to meet more stringent regulatory standards and challenging specifications is growing. The ongoing shift to higher quality automotive lubricants is driven mainly by the automobile industry's increasingly demanding requirements such as severe vehicle emission standards. Industrial demand is also moving towards HVI hydraulic fluids and high oxidation stability turbine oils.
Since more than 80% of the content of lubricants consists of base oil, higher quality base oil is essential in producing higher quality lubricants. GS Caltex Group II/III base oil can give the optimal solution for top quality lubricants which conventional base oils are not able to provide.

Products & Applications
API Category(1) Viscosity(2) Applications
Group II 150N (3) Automotive / Industrial lubricants
220N Automotive / Industrial lubricants
600N Automotive / Industrial / Marine lubricants
Group III 2 cSt (60N) Process Oil / Transformer Oil
4 cSt (100N) High quality Automotive / Industrial lubricants
6 cSt (150N) High quality Automotive / Industrial lubricants
8 cSt (250N) High quality Industrial lubricants

(1) API(American Petroleum Institute) categorizes base oil into five groups according to saturates, sulfur and viscosity index. Adventages of Group II & III Base Oils compared with Group I are low volatility, high thermal & oxidation stability, better low temperature properties, clear and bright while color, good friction behavior & wear reduction.
(2) Viscosity is a measure of a fluid’s resistance to flow. Often-used measurement units are cSt at 100℉. According to specific speed, temperature, and load condition required for machine and equipment, different viscosity of lubricants is needed.
(3) Changed from acidic oil to neutral oil after refining.
 

Benefits

Through ingenuity in facility design, GS Caltex has the flexibility to control the desired amount of production of Group II and Group III base oil. GS Caltex can also produce high quality heavy grade base oil to replace white Oil and bright stock. GS Caltex Group II/III base oil has excellent low temperature properties and exceptionally b>bright white clear transparent qualities. The Group II/III base oil produced by GS Caltex is environment-friendly with low volatility, reducing oil consumption and improving fuel economy. And GS Caltex offers high thermal and oxidation stability to support drain interval extension. All these advantages are the result from the latest cutting edge hydrocracking technology. These benefits will help GS Caltex adapt more efficiently to changing market conditions and generate greater customer satisfaction.
