PolyOne Launches SynPrime™ Lubricant Esters

PolyOne Corporation on June 9 announced the launch of SynPrime™ Lubricant Esters, a family of synthetic base oils and additives featuring customizable diverse chemistries for automotive, aviation and industrial lubricant applications. All of the SynPrime™ Lubricant Esters can be used as either a synthetic base stock or as part of an additive package, the latter primarily in order to compatibilize polar additives with non-polar base stocks.

Optimized for high-performance and specialty applications, SynPrime esters provide high and low-temperature utility as well as long-life lubrication according to the company. Available in customized chemistries, these esters can accelerate manufacturers’ speed-to-market, especially at the lower volumes typical for emerging and specialty oils, fluids, and greases.

“Building on more than 40 years of ester expertise, PolyOne combines a broad product portfolio with flexible and agile manufacturing,” said Don Wiseman, senior vice president, PolyOne and president, Performance Products and Solutions. “Our collaborative approach, coupled with the ability to deliver new specialty esters, can help lubricant formulators meet the dynamic needs of their customers.”

Synthetic esters offer numerous benefits over petroleum-derived mineral oils and other synthetic alternatives such as lower pour point, reduced volatility, better viscosity index, higher flash points and improved biodegradability.

Lubricants formulated with SynPrime esters are ideal for a broad range of high-performance applications in many markets, including gear oils, engine oils, transmission fluids, hydraulic fluids, metalworking fluids, and greases.

The initial launch of PolyOne’s SynPrime Lubricant Ester product line includes eight different base chemistries, available in viscosities ranging from 7.7 cSt to 88.1 cSt at 40C. Ten additional chemistries will be commercialized throughout the remainder of 2016 and 2017.

PolyOne Corporation had revenues of $3.4 billion in 2015.
