PRODUCTS AND SERVICES
Lubricant oil and grease protect engines and machine parts by reducing friction and attrition. These are essential products in the maintenance of the vehicles and equipment that drive industries.
Lubricants are composed of base oil, which can be mineral or synthetic, and additives (such as oxidation, rust and corrosion inhibitors, antifoam, detergents, and dispersants, amongst others). Basically, we have three types of lubricants: mineral (made with 100% fossil fuel base oil), semi-synthetic (produced with mineral and synthetic oils) and synthetic (laboratory-developed).
Moove’s licensee in Brazil and other countries, such as England, Scotland, France, Portugal, Spain, Argentina, Paraguay and Bolivia, the Mobil brand is recognized worldwide for its leadership in premium automotive and industrial lubricants. Higher product quality and better technology result in benefits for customers, such as greater efficiency, productivity, and reliability. Over the last five years, Mobil was the fastest-growing premium brand in Brazil, increasing from 11.5% to 18% market share in 2017. Learn more about our products: Click here.

The base oil is lubricant oil’s main raw material, directly influencing the quality and performance of the finished product. Constantly evolving, engines and machines increasingly require greater efficiency, boosting the demand for base oil advanced technologies.
Moove is the authorized distributor in Brazil of base oil imported from US ExxonMobil (Groups I and II) and the South Korean S-Oil (Group III). The company consolidated a unique portfolio and became Brazil’s largest base oil importer, with strategic facilities located in Brazil’s two major lubricant-producing markets: Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo.
