Polyalphaolefin (PAO) Production Cost Reports


Polyalphaolefin production cost report provides a comprehensive analysis and know-how for setting up a Polyalphaolefin production plant. The study covers all the requisite aspects that one needs to know for the production of Polyalphaolefin. This includes manufacturing processes, raw material requirements, utility requirements, infrastructure requirements, machinery and technology requirements, manpower requirements, packaging requirements, transportation requirements, etc.

Polyalphaolefin (PAO) is a significant synthetic base oil, a synthetic hydrocarbon (SHC) which resembles the hydrocarbon (branched) structure prominent in mineral oils. The presence of these synthetic hydrocarbons is able to offer superior lubrication performance in comparison to a broader operating-temperature range (of -60 to 125°C) than petroleum oils. The oil has no double bonds, ring structures, nitrogen or sulphur components or waxy hydrocarbons. Owing to the absence of the structures and materials, it forms a very non-polar base oil that has a viscosity index (125 to 145) higher by around 130.

PAO has exceptional properties, including great oxidation stability, low-temperature flow and pour-point, and compatibility with mineral oils, paints, and seals commonly found in lube oil systems. Furthermore, owing to their controlled structure, there is no presence of lighter and more volatile hydrocarbons (tiny), which reduces their volatility, creating significantly lesser emissions of hydrocarbon tailpipe, giving rise to the flash point.

They have many benefits like high viscosity index (vi), strengths, low volatility, high thermal oxidative stability, non-toxic, good flow properties at low temperatures, and great compatibility with mineral oils. PAO-based lubricants usually have the ability to resist water and creep washout and also provide great lubricity across a wide range of substrate material pairings, such as metal-to-metal and metal-to-plastic. The three main kinds of PAO are low viscosity PAO oils (2 – 100 cSt at 100°C), high viscosity pao oils (40 – 100 cst at 100°c), and high viscosity index PAO oils (150 – 1000 cSt at 100°C).

The Polyalphaolefin market is being driven by the oil’s primary application as an industrial and automotive lubricant. PAOs are mainly used in automotive fluids along with bearing oils, hydraulics, and gear, which makes them ideal for use in both hot and cold applications. They find usage as base fluids in certain temperature ranges greases which further its market demand.
