Polyalphaolefin (PAO) Production Cost Report

Polyalphaolefin (PAO) is a synthetic hydrocarbon and is considered one of the most widely used polymer materials. It serves as the most common major synthetic base oil used in industrial and automotive lubricants to provide superior lubrication performance. Moreover, PAOs are synthetic lubricants that are extensively utilized in automotive fluids, engine oils, bearing oils, aviation hydraulics, and gear oils, ideal for use in both hot and cold applications, which contribute to longer drain intervals and increased longevity of the engine. They often find usage as base fluids in some wide temperature range greases.

The rising demand for polyalphaolefin (PAO) as a major synthetic base oil in the production of industrial and automotive lubricants is what drives its market . Its usage as a synthetic lubricant in engine oils, automotive fluids, aviation hydraulics, and gear oils further strengthens its demand in the industrial manufacturing, automotive, and aerospace industries. Additionally, it is also utilized as a base fluid in greases that operate over a wide range of temperatures. Moreover, the availability and cost of production of polyalphaolefin (PAO) feedstock (1-decene or 1-dodecene), polyalphaolefin (PAO) market prices, regulatory compliances, supplier relationships, distribution (including trading and shipping), logistics, etc., are some of the elements that influence industrial polyalphaolefin (PAO) procurement.

Raw Material for Polyalphaolefin (PAO) Production

According to the Polyalphaolefin (PAO) manufacturing plant project report, the major raw materials for Polyalphaolefin (PAO) production include Alpha-Olefin (1-decene or 1-dodecene)

Manufacturing Process of Polyalphaolefin (PAO)

The extensive Polyalphaolefin (PAO) production cost report consists of the following industrial manufacturing process:

  • Production from Polymerization: This production process involves the polymerization of alpha-olefins, typically derived from the cracking of petroleum hydrocarbons. In this method, common alpha-olefins used include 1-decene or 1-dodecene that undergo polymerization in the presence of a catalyst, followed by hydrogenation to obtain high-quality polyalphaolefin as the final product.

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.

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, 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).
