NEXBASE Base Oils

NEXBASE™ base oils are top-tier Group III base oils. The main applications for our base oils are high-performance engine oils, drive line fluids and industrial lubricants. NEXBASE™ base stocks have high oxidation stability, low evaporation, excellent low temperature fluidity and extremely low sulphur content.

Our extensive NEXBASE™ formulation portfolio is created for our customers to provide the best lubrication solutions for OEMs, motorists and other end users. We ensure that these lubricants will work reliably in all conditions and are better for the environment.

The use of NEXBASE™ base oils in engine oils is growing

New emission legislation is a driver for using better base oils. The latest catalytic converter technologies allow for lower impurity levels, and therefore, better engine lubricants are needed. Conventional mineral oil based lubricants do not fulfil the latest specifications and NEXBASE™ base oils are replacing them in high-performance lubricants.

Our dedicated customer service team is unrivaled in the industry. It has received recognition from our customers and ranks highest in performance and quality.
