Why Poly alpha olefin (PAO) Essential for Automotive Industry? 


Poly alpha olefin (PAO) is mostly used synthetic base oil across industrial and in automotive lubricants. It is a synthetic hydrocarbon (SHC) that replicates the branched structure of the hydrocarbon. Poly alpha olefins (PAO) are well-known for their exceptional non-polar adhesive properties. Because of their resistance to moisture and extreme temperatures, they are also commonly used as a hot-melt adhesive in the packaging industry. PAO is also highly valued in the hygiene and wood-processing industries. Unlike other polyolefins, PAO is completely amorphous and does not crystallize. As a result, they're also known as amorphous or atactic poly alpha olefins (PAO). On-purpose PAO are homopolymers or copolymers of ethylene, propylene, and other chemical units. The demand for poly alpha olefin (PAO) base stock is growing in the forecast period. ExxonMobil, INEOS, and Chevron are three significant providers of PAO base stock. PAOs are nonpolar polymers made by polymerizing alpha olefins. Poly alpha olefins are classified as Group IV by the American Petroleum Institute. They also have several advantages over Group I, II, and III basic stocks.  

Bio-Based Poly alpha olefin (PAO) Gaining Popularity  

The goal of bio-based PAO lubricants is to replace petroleum-based lubricants and they can help with several environmental problems. The advantage of bio-based PAO lubricants is that they can be altered or recycled numerous times before they have an adverse effect on the environment. Because of their favorable environmental impact, bio-based lubricants are gaining popularity, leading to a significant increase in the market for them over the course of the forecast period. Moreover, in comparison to commercial petroleum-based PAO, the parameters of a biobased poly alpha olefin with a viscosity of 40 cSt at 100 °C are frequently used.

Facts to Know? 

Over 310,000 electric vehicles were sold in the US in 2021, and while sales have fluctuated over the previous five years, they are expected to rise as manufacturers like Tesla and Toyota improve their offerings. The popularity of poly alpha olefin used in EV components will rise as the market for electric vehicles grows, which will have a positive impact on the US poly alpha olefin industry. 

Italy's macroeconomic situation is a result of how important infrastructure development is becoming to the nation. Additionally, it is linked to private sector and multilateral financing in Europe, ensuring the economic benefits of infrastructure development. Additionally, the government's plans to construct new airports and increase funding for agricultural and aviation infrastructure may contribute to the growth of poly alpha olefins over the course of the forecast period.

Types of Poly Alpha Olefin (PAO) Existing  

High Viscosity PAO (Poly alpha olefins) Base Stocks are available in viscosities of 40 and 100 cSt at 100°C and are particularly well-suited for industrial oils needing high stability under demanding working conditions. To make a variety of ISO VG industrial and automotive gear oils, they are frequently used as a viscosity booster with lower-viscosity fluids (PAO, mineral oils). 

Medium crude oils are typically a blend of light and heavy oils. Distillation can be used to separate the desired light hydrocarbons. Following the refining process, the heavier oil components, known as "residuum," may be further processed to create more valuable end products, or they may be sold as-is for a lower profit than the light hydrocarbon components. 

Use of a low viscosity PAO oil in the engine minimizes energy loss, viscous drag, and increases overall vehicle economy while also prolonging drain intervals. Lower viscosity formulas flow through the oil pump faster and smoother, using less energy to transport lubricant throughout the engine. Low viscosity oils enhance fuel economy, lowering one of the most expensive aspects of hauling — gasoline. "The combined impact of low viscosity synthetic engine oils and drivetrain lubricants can enhance fuel economy by at least 3%," according to the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) program.
