Quality standards
UNCOMPROMISING HIGH QUALITY AT A REASONABLE PRICE
Thanks to Company’s own synthetic base stocks and the effective production system

THE REQUIRED QUALITY LEVEL IS DETERMINED BY THE FOLLOWING:

AUTOMAKER RECOMMENDATIONS

(QUALITY LEVEL)

Manufacturer’s recommendations include listing of the required level of oil operational properties and, as a rule, listing of properties in compliance with API, ACEA and ILSAC.

TECHNICAL AND ECONOMIC FEASIBILITY

Technical and economic feasibility lies in selecting the oil that fully meets the automaker requirements and with the longest service life possible. And all this at a reasonable cost! In other words, it is necessary to estimate specific fuel costs per kilometer.

BASE STOCK
Basic motor oil is divided into 4 groups. The table presents aggregated information on base stocks
GROUP I GROUP II GROUP III
Common Name Mineral Mineral Synthetic
Quality category of the base stock low quality high quality hydrocracked,
Performance indicators, % conv. 100 120 300
Price category, % conv. 100 110 140
[2.]
ADDITIVES

Manufacturer’s recommendations include listing of the required level of oil operational properties and, as a rule, listing of properties in compliance with API, ACEA and ILSAC.

Additives add additional operational properties to the base stocks.

It is necessary to know that the additives also differ. Their concentration is important as well.

No oil manufacturer produces additives.

These are procured from the three world leaders in this area, i.e.

all oil manufacturers procure additives from the
very same companies.

COMBINATION OF THE BASE STOCK
AND ADDITIVES

The base stock has a direct influence on the oil service life, i.e. replacement interval.

The wear of additives is an important operating characteristic, which defines the oil service life.

Additives (priced 100 c.u.) Group I, II, III, IV base stocks price (100, 110, 140, 400 c.u. respectively).
In accordance with the statistics, the wear of additives after using these oils in the same conditions will make:
The calculation of the technical feasibility is carried out in accordance with the ratio of the cost per 8 kilometers:
OIL А
Group I
and additives 100+100=200 c.u.

200 c.u./8000 km = 25,0 c.u./1000 km

THE ABSOLUTE LEADER
IN PRODUCTION OF GROUP III SYNTHETIC BASE STOCKS

sells these oils to the leading global companies. uses its own Group III base stocks for ZIC oil production. It benefits both the quality and oil cost price.

BASE STOCK COST PRICE

(manufacturer or buyer).

ADDITIVES COST PRICE

(almost the same for all leading companies).

PROFIT

(almost the same for all leading companies).

ADDED VALUE

the margin for the brand (the more popular the brand, the higher the margin).
When using ZIC motor oils:
1.
YOU ARE INSURED AGAINST COUNTERFEITING (only manufactured in South Korea)
2.
NO OVERPAYMENT FOR THE HIGH-QUALITY BASE STOCK (own production)
3.
CONFIDENCE IN QUALITY (all oils are developed on the basis of Group III synthetic base stocks)
4.
TECHNICAL AND ECONOMIC FEASIBILITY AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL (the market’s best price/quality ratio)
