We, at Shamrock are proactively thinking of our customers’ needs and we are proud to announce that we have an additional source of poly alpha-olefins, from state of art refinery which expects to produce more than 9,000 tons of PAOs in 2021. As of now, we can provide a wider range of PAO grades, as following:  2, 4, 6,10, 12, 20 & 25 cSt.

Shamrock can arrange deliveries to any port in different types of packing, such as drums, IBCs or flexitanks, to meet your requirements in terms of delivery, price, and deferred payment solutions.

What is PAO:

Polyalphaolefins (PAOs) are hydrocarbons manufactured by a process of catalytic oligomerisation polymerisation to low molecular weight linear-olefins, particularly 10 (C10) or 12 (C12) carbon atoms. The majority of synthetic base oils are used in industrial and automotive lubricants. It is a synthetic hydrocarbon (SHC) that mimics the best hydrocarbon structure found in mineral oils. PAOs are classified as Group IV and commercially have viscosities between 2 and 100 cSt @ 100°C, with viscosities between 4 and 8 cSt representing 80% of the total volume of PAOs.

Considering climate change, sustainability concerns and the pursuit of higher performance by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) result in greater use of synthetic lubricants. In the past, demand was constrained by the higher cost of synthetic base fluids compare to G1 and G2, but today more than ever, the gap is close, and the opportunity is there!

Applications:

Due to their enhanced wear protection, greater oxidation stability, and exemplary behavior at low and high temperatures, PAOs are ideal for multiple applications. To name a few:

  • Engine oils: 0w16, 0w20, 0w30 and 0w40.
  • Industrial lubricants: Compressor Oils, Gear Oils, Heat Transfer Fluids, Hydraulic oils
  • Top tier greases and Food grade lubricants.
