Polyalphaolefin
PAO
Polyalphaolefin (a.k.a. PAO) is a polymer made by polymerizing an alpha-olefin usually 1-decene or a mixture of α-olefins containing, in general, a minimum of six and a maximum of twelve carbon atoms. PAOs are manufactured by boron trifluoride-based Friedel–Crafts oligomerization of α-olefins, using alcohols as co-catalysts. This process results in products a high viscosity index, of approximately 130, excellent low-temperature flow and pour-point characteristics, good oxidation stability and compatibility with mineral oils, paints and seals. However, these products has poor fire resistance and biodegradability. PAOs are used in several synthetic products, such as greases, lubricants, fluids, and have emerged as crucial components in many applications and industries.
