AVI-OIL has been supplying aviation lubricants to the Defence Services since 1994. The product of AVI-OIL include a wide range of high performance aero-engine oils, hydraulic fluids, greases, protective, and specialities designed to meet stringent requirements of operations over a wide temperature range.

Development of new products for the Defence and Industry is a continuous process at AVI-OIL, through the efforts of its in-house Research & Development unit. The primary aim of the R & D program is to develop mineral and synthetic high performance lubricating oils for the Defence and industrial sectors with particular emphasis on the products required for aircraft in order to achieve self-reliance in this strategic area.

Till date more than 50 grades have been developed and commercialised. Notable among them are:
