Synthetic Base Oils

Base and Process Oils

Synthetic Base Oils – (Often referred to as Group III & IV) – Base Stocks that involve a chemically modified base which can be of a petroleum or chemical origin.

Group III – Base Oils that have been converted by means of a catalytic process in the presence of Hydrogen, usually under greater pressures. These resulting Base Oils are very pure and refined with superior performance to Group I and II Base Stocks.

PAO (Polyalphaolefin) (Group IV) – *For more information, please see our “PAO” page.

Synthetic Esters (Group V) – Derived from diesters, polyolesters, alklylated napthlenes, alkyklated benzenes, etc.)
