Base oil is an oil that is considered as a base for lubricant

Base oil is an oil that is considered as a base for lubricant. The most important component of lubricants in terms of volume is the Base oil and in terms of weight, on average, more than ninety-five percent of the formulation of a lubricant. Recommended for use in the production of automotive and industrial oils, oils and greases, rubber products, white oils and Paraffin oils, etc. 

In some lubricants (compressor and hydraulic oils) 99% of the oil is base oil and only 1% of it is additives. Base oils can be obtained from Petroleum or non-oil sources. Most of the base oils consumed in the world come from refining crude oil. The main constituents of base oils are paraffinic, naphthenic and aromatic compounds.

Base oil is the most important element in the formation of lubricants in terms of volume, so announcing that the share of base oil in the efficiency of the final lubricant is increasing day by day is not far from reality. In this regard, we can refer to turbine oil, of which more than 99% is base oil.

Modern lubricants are made from a wide range of base liquids and chemical additives. The base liquid has several functions, but is primarily a lubricant, providing a layer of fluid that separates moving surfaces or dissipates heat and coats the particles while minimizing friction. Many lubricating properties are enhanced or created by adding special chemical additives to the base liquid.

Base oils can be obtained from oil or non-oil sources, but most of the world's base oils are made from oil refining. The properties of petroleum-based base oils depend on the type of crude oil and how it is refined. Therefore, oil, like crude oil, consists of various substances and compounds, the main components of which are paraffinic, naphthenic and aromatic compounds.
