You’re going to be hearing a lot more about ZIC
ZIC Motor Oils is arguably the biggest name in our local automotive industry that most people haven’t heard of! That is about to change!
ZIC Motor Oil is a high quality product produced in parent company, SK Lubricants, refinery based in Ulsan, South Korea. The refinery itself is state of the art, covering a whopping 8.2 million square metres, and is currently the second largest refinery on the planet. The refinery produces the main ingredient of ZIC Motor Oils – the SK Lubricants patented ‘Yubase’ Group III Synthetic base oil. Yubase is the world’s largest Group III synthetic base oil by volume.
All ZIC Motor Oils are made using Yubase, giving all ZIC Motor Oils a higher VI (viscosity index) compared to comparable products made using a mineral base oil. When combined with high quality additive packages, the end result is a high quality finished product.
ZIC boasts factory fill for engine oil at Hyundai Motors, Kia Motors, Nissan and Renault, along with the factory fill for GM’s Dexron VI automatic transmission fluid. Supplementing these factory fills is a number of OEM approvals from leading manufacturers including BMW, Ford, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, VW and Volvo. ZIC is also the factory fill gear oil for Tesla.
