Although a relatively recent arrival to New Zealand, this is a brand that has been punching above its weight globally since its inception in 1995. ZIC Oil (pronounced ‘Zeak’) is now amongst the largest lubricant producers globally, helped by the fact ZIC’S parent company, SK Lubricants, has its own refinery in South Korea and is the largest producer of Group III base oils for the manufacture of many well-known brands of oil. As such, ZIC is a preferred first-fill lubricant for a wide range of new passenger-vehicle brands, including Hyundai and Gm/holden. ZIC’S range is created using SK Lubricants’ unique VHVI (very high viscosity index) technology, which ensures ultimate protection regardless of climate. While we don’t have the extremes here in New Zealand that ZIC handles with ease in Russia, ZIC is proven to perform. Check out more about ZIC at all good oil vendors, or online at zic.co.nz.
