Polyalphaolefins Resources


Synfluid® PAO Blending Matrix Tool

Synfluid® PAOs bring specific advantages that are a perfect fit for today’s and tomorrow’s engine oil needs. The low temperature, oxidative stability and low coefficient of friction performance properties of Synfluid® PAOs are well known.

However, optimizing the many permutations for individual lubricant applications can present a laboratory challenge in time and resources. For instance, seeking low-viscosity options for ULV engine oils and balancing Noack volatility and CCS viscosities can lead to a large number of laboratory blends.

Thanks to the Synfluid® PAO Blending Matrix Tool, you can calculate a variety of properties from any PAO blend. Our experts developed this unique online tool to meet your application challenges and streamline future product development.

USDA and FDA Approvals

Most Synfluid® PAOs are both NSF H1 and HX-1 registered. These products are acceptable as a lubricant with incidental food contact (H1) for use in and around food processing areas. Such compounds may be used on food processing equipment as a protective anti-rust film, as a release agent on gaskets or seals of tank closures, and as a lubricant for machine parts and equipment in locations in which there is a potential exposure of the lubricated part to food. The amount used should be the minimum required to accomplish the desired technical effect on the equipment. If used as an anti-rust film, the compound must be removed from the equipment surface by washing or wiping, as required to leave the surface effectively free of any substance, which could be transferred to food being processed.

Furthermore, they may be used as components of nonfood articles intended for use in contact with food, pursuant to the provisions of 21 CFR 178.3620(b)(1). Synfluid® PAOs also meet the Food and Drug Administration technical white oils specifications as described in 21 CFR 178.3620(b)(1).
