Q8 Oils

Research & development

New product development is at the heart of Q8Oils’ business.


Therefore a Research & Development programme has been created to ensure continuous technological innovation.

Using feedback from customers, manufacturers and suppliers, Q8Oils’ team of scientists, chemists and product application engineers combine their extensive knowledge of lubricants to upgrade existing products and develop new ones.


Q8Oils offers value added services that include oil analysis and monitoring. From clients’ oil samples, scientists prepare a report and recommendations, which are forwarded by email.

This enables clients to view on line the condition of the oil in their fleet or machinery and to track historical trends.


The Research & Development team also provides important information on safety, security, health and environmental issues and gives advice on all aspects of production, product application and quality control.
