ExxonMobil manufacturers both low and high viscosity polyalphaolefins (PAO) which enables you to work with a single source manufacturer to handle all of your worldwide distribution needs. With commercial viscosity grades ranging from 2 cSt to 10 cSt and high viscosity products up to 150 cSt, we provide our customers the flexibility to formulate and meet the most extreme requirements.

The results is a PAO platform with improved shear stability, higher viscosity index (VI), and lower pour point, providing unprecedented versatility to formulate a wide range of lubricants. Well suited for industrial and automotive applications, SpectraSyn Elite™ MPAO is available in 150cSt and 65 cSt at 100o C.

ExxonMobil Esterex Ester Base Stock

For as long as synthetic basestocks have been used in the lubrication business, ExxonMobil has been developing and manufacturing lubricant-quality esters. With more than 30 years of experience, they have become a true leader in the field, offering a complete line of Esterex esters for synthetic lubricants.

Esters are synthesize to produce molecular structures especially suited for high performance lubrication. With stability and solvency to help limit deposit formation, Esterex TM line includes adipate, neopolyol, phthalate and trimellitate esters. They can be used in applications such as compressor oils, gear oils, transmission fluids and engine oils. Their compatibility with polyalphaolefin (PAO) and other base stocks, also available from ExxonMobil Chemical, is just one more reason to make us your primary supplier.

Esters have a wide operating temperature range and are characterized by good thermal/oxidative stability and solvency, traits important for your lubrication products. They have high stability and low volatility, along with lubricity and cleanliness, which improves durability and lubricant life in tough applications. Plus many esters are biodegradable, so they can be a good choice for applications that require a lubricant’s contact with the environment.

We also offer Synesstic Alkylated Naphthalene as a synthetic basestock fluid for automotive and industrial lubricants.

Synesstic AN is listed on the U.S. FDA inventory of Effective Food Contact Substance Notifications, making it suitable for applications with incidental food contact. In addition SynsessticTM AN is H1/HX-1 National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) registered and Kosher certified.
