Technology for industrial lubricants

Polyalphaolefin (PAO)-based lubricants.

PAO-based lubricants: thermal stability, oxidation resistance and wide range of use for industrial and automotive applications.


Polyalphaolefin (PAO)-based lubricants are a category of synthetic lubricants that are obtained through a polymerization process of olefin, a petroleum-derived base molecule. This allows for larger molecules than those found in crude olefin, resulting in improved lubricant properties compared to traditional mineral lubricants, such as higher thermal stability and a wider use range.

They are also more resistant to oxidation and corrosion, and are used in a wide range of industrial applications, including compressors, turbines, and transmission systems.


  • Polyalphaolefin (PAO)-based fluids are among the most common synthetic base oils used in industrial and automotive lubricants. They are designed to provide superior lubrication performance over a wider operating temperature range than petroleum oils and are generally less volatile.
  • PAO-based lubricants generally resist creep and water runoff and provide good lubrication in a variety of substrate material pairings, including metal-to-metal and metal-to-plastic.
