Group I base oils are solvent-refined, which is a simpler refining process. This is why they are the cheapest base oils on the market.
oils group I are transported in iso tanks, flexitanks, trucks and stored in flexi tanks.
They are mostly used in industrial and marine lubricants and in engine oils for older engines.

Group II base oils are are often manufactured by hydro cracking, which is a more complex process than what is used for Group I base oils. Since the entire hydrocarbon molecules of these oils are saturated, Group II base oils have better anti oxidation properties. They also have a clearer color and cost more in comparison to Group I base oils.
Group II base oils are used in different lubricant applications – most lubricants can be made from them.
Ason oil delivers Group II base oils in trucks, flexi-containers and rail tank cars. You can contact us to receive group II base oil specifications – our sales department will help you to choose the product for your particular application.

Group III base oils are refined even more than Group II base oils and generally are severely hydrocracked (higher pressure and heat). This longer process is designed to achieve purer base oil. Although made from crude oil, Group III base oils are sometimes described as synthesized hydrocarbons. Like Group II base oils, these oils are also becoming more prevalent.
The main applications for base oils group III are high-performance engine oils, driveline fluids and industrial lubricants. These products can be found in the lubricant, construction, and chemical industries.
Ason oil can deliver Group III base oils in trucks, flexi-containers and rail tank cars.

Group IV base oils are polyalphaolefins (PAOs). These synthetic base oils are made through a process called synthesizing. They have a much broader temperature range and are great for use in extreme cold conditions and high heat applications.To choose a particular product for your application or find out PAO price please contact our sales department: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Group V base oils are classified as all other base oils, including silicone, phosphate ester, polyalkylene glycol (PAG), polyolester, biolubes, etc. These base oils are at times mixed with other base stocks to enhance the oil’s properties. An example would be PAO-based compressor oil that is mixed with a polyol ester. Esters are common Group V base oils used in different lubricant formulations to improve the properties of the existing base oil. Ester oils can take more abuse at higher temperatures and will provide superior detergency compared to PAO synthetic base oil, which in turn increases the hours of use. Remember, whichever base oil you choose, just be sure it is appropriate for the application, temperature range and conditions in your plant.To choose a particular product for your application or find out esters price please contact our sales department: email@example.com.
