Sinopec is one of the world’s largest companies and second largest global oil refiner. Sinopec ranks amongst the top lubricant companies in both size and product performance. In Australia, Sinopec is used by many of the largest mining companies working under extreme conditions in remote locations across the country. Sinopec has constantly outperformed the brand it replaced in each case. This has contributed to the impressive growth of the brand around the country.
How well does Sinopec perform under Australian conditions?
Sinopec is being used under extreme conditions around Australia. The products are tested by our customers on an ongoing basis and many have been able to extend oil servicing intervals as the oil is holding its integrity for longer. ILD and Sinopec have been able to demonstrate extended parts life and reductions in wear on equipment used both on and off road. This has led to the brand's success in the Australian mining industry where lubricants face the most torturous conditions.
