Automotive lubricants

MobilTM-brand lubricants supported technological evolution even before the first gasoline engine was invented. Mobil has played important roles in a number of famous historical events: the Wright brothers' first flight, space station launches and Formula One engines from the very first to the latest models. Mobil automotive lubricants meet the latest standards set by API (American Petroleum Institute), ILSAC (International Lubricant Standardization and Approval Committee), ACEA (European Automobile Manufacturers Association) and other organizations and protect engines effectively to help vehicles achieve the best performance in all situations from routine car maintenance to use in harsh conditions. Mobil 1, in particular, is a synthetic engine oil manufactured using high-performance base oil and advanced additive technology, and continues to be the oil of choice for customers around the world. In addition to the domestic sale of Mobil-brand automotive lubricants like Mobil 1, we are also involved in the joint development of next-generation products with major Japanese auto manufacturers to supply high-quality oils to better meet the latest needs of customers.

Industrial lubricants

Mobil-brand industrial lubricants have led lubricant technology for over 100 years. Our vast expertise and experience achieved through research in this field are used extensively to develop lubricants designed for advanced industrial machinery. Such lubricants make great contributions to improved equipment productivity and energy conservation.

Striving to improve productivity and conserve energy, we have created the synthetic lubricant Mobil SHCTM, using leading-edge technology. Mobil-brand industrial lubricants, which provide superior technological support and are recommended by major international machinery manufacturers, demonstrate their strong performance particularly in the manufacturing and electricity industries, including wind power generation.
