Someone else might come up with something else but if it's a trade name it doesn't need to be translated. You just need to put in a note/translate what it's composed of (according to this link) or the description

"...The non-volatile, high-boiling residue from the distillation of products from cumene-phenol process.

It consists predominantly of

substituted phenyl groups crosslinked by carbon-oxygen bonds and phenylaliphatic bonds..."

...but I presume
Benzene, (1-methylethyl)-, oxidized, polyphenyl residue is what it is from the longer explanation

Notes to answerer
Asker: That was the only page I could find myself, too:) Not helping much, unfortunately - I am not sure if translating "Benzene, (1-methylethyl)-, oxidized, polyphenyl residues" would actually be the equivalent of "Z-Oil".
