Virgin Base Oils

Newly refined crude oil is referred to as virgin base oil, it has not been previously used and sets the bar for oil quality. Once used in any way, it is then referred to as “used oil” and can then go through further refinement to be considered recycled or re-refined.

Virgin is the mostly commonly used oil found within a wide spectrum of lubricant products on the market and is also used to formulate superior passenger car motor oils, heavy duty motor oils, automatic transmission fluids, and also has agriculture, detergents/dispersants, greases, hydraulic fluids and oils, metalworking, and food contact applications.
