Longer equipment lifetime

Modern machines operate at higher speeds and temperatures than ever before, whilst older machines can have very different operating requirements. Because of this we have designed and tested our lubricants to give you the highest levels of protection and productivity to ensure operating reliability 24/7, whilst recognising that every machine is unique.

Lower operational costs

Benefit from high-performance circulating oils that withstand high pressure and wide range of temperatures to increase productivity, limit downtime and avoid maintenance shutdown by getting expert lubricant advice from Q8Oils resulting in lower operational costs.
