Your Foundation for Innovation

Chevron Phillips Chemical leads the industry in developing high-quality polyalphaolefins (PAOs). PAOs are specially designed chemicals made from alpha olefins. They are used in many synthetic products such as lubricants, greases and fluids, and have emerged as essential components in many industries and applications. The stability of the PAO molecule, among other performance characteristics, makes it superior to mineral oils for a growing number of applications.
