Our Products

For more than two decades, Chevron Phillips Chemical has been a leader in the development and production of PAOs. We have developed new products designed to meet ever more demanding performance requirements and now offer both a low viscosity and high viscosity product line.  The low viscosity product line consists of PAO 2, PAO 4, PAO 6, PAO 8 and PAO 10 based on C10 alpha olefins, and PAO 2.5, PAO 5, PAO 6 HVI, PAO 7, PAO 8 HVI and PAO 9 based on C12 alpha olefins. We also provide a unique set of unhydrogenated dimer products:  C10 Dimer and C12 Dimer.  Our high viscosity product line consists of mPAO 65, mPAO 100 and mPAO 150 based on C8 alpha olefins. 

Our comprehensive range of PAOs provides our customers with a greater range of physical properties from which to choose, giving them more flexibility and versatility in developing products better suited to their individual applications. 

Most of our Synfluid® products are NSF H1 registered, which meets USDA 1998 H1 guidelines.

We are also pleased to offer Kosher certification upon request.

In addition to our traditional PAOs, we also offer MIL grade products on certain viscosities.  For more information, contact our business development department at 800-231-3260

Product Properties Advantages

PAOs are traditionally known and used for their "problem-solving" abilities. That's because polyalpholefins are impurity-free and contain only well-defined hydrocarbon molecules with specific performance properties.
 
PAOs are made from an intentional process of oligomerizing alpha olefins for targeted performance properties. Refined and hydrocracked mineral oils contain sulfurs, aromatics and other foreign compounds that are not discernable in polyalphaolefins. This provides several advantages, which can be illustrated by Gas Chromatography (GC).
 
GC shows considerable difference between the mineral oil and the PAO. As can be seen in the chart below, the mineral oil has both lighter and heavier components than the PAO. The lighter material causes poorer volatility, as well as lower flash and fire points. The heavier material adversely affects low-temperature performance and pour point.
 
By tailoring the PAO molecules, we can obtain optimal performance properties for these products.
