ZF Hydraulic Oils represent a cutting-edge solution in the world of lubrication. These oils are meticulously crafted, devoid of zinc and ash, and are blended using top-tier mineral oils with remarkable characteristics, including a high viscosity index and a low pour point. They are engineered to deliver an extended, trouble-free service life and maintain their chemical stability even when subjected to the harshest operating conditions. Notably, they excel at safeguarding against corrosion, resisting the undesirable formation of emulsification, and preventing the creation of persistent foam.

The ongoing shift towards higher hydraulic system pressures enables enhanced performance and allows for reductions in the size of pumps and equipment. Simultaneously, the hydraulic oil faces increasingly demanding tasks of lubricating, sealing, and cooling the working components, all while contending with rising temperatures, heightened turbulence, and increased pressure. The imperative to uphold performance standards over prolonged service intervals necessitates continuous advancements in additive systems.

ZF Hydraulic Oils are thoughtfully formulated to meet these evolving demands. They leverage paraffinic, high-viscosity index mineral oils as their base, bolstered by a suite of performance-enhancing additives. This includes a specialized ashless multifunctional additive package designed to combat oxidation, rust, and wear, ensuring optimal performance even in the most challenging hydraulic systems.


The performance benefits of ZF Hydraulic Oils include:

  • Exceptional thermal and hydrolytic stability for prolonged performance in demanding conditions.
  • Remarkably high oxidation stability, safeguarding against oil degradation.
  • Effective demulsibility and anti-foam properties, preventing unwanted foam formation and emulsification.
  • Impressive load-bearing capacity, delivering excellent extreme pressure (EP) performance.
  • Outstanding corrosion protection for both steel and non-ferrous metals.
  • Efficient filterability with a reduced tendency to clog filters.
  • Minimized pump wear, ensuring extended equipment lifespan and reliability.


ZF Hydraulic Oils meet or exceed the requirements of many international tests and specifications for industrial and mobile hydraulic and compressor systems including:

  • AFNOR NFE 48-603 (HM, HV)
  • Cincinnati Machine P-68, P-69, P-70
  • Denison HF-0, HF-1, HF-2
  • DIN 51524, parts 1, 2 (HL, HLP)
  • DIN 51506 (VBL, VCL, VDL)
  • ISO11158 (HM)
  • ISO 6743/4 (HM)
  • ISO/DP 6521 (DAA, DAB, DAH, DAG)
  • Parker Hannifin France HF-0
