We adhere to a strict shelf-life policy and are committed to shipping orders on-time and in-full every time. To make sure we offer the best support possible, we maintain a constant feedback loop with our customers.


tetramer (RM50142)

Highly branched mono-olefin (C12 rich) used in the manufacturing of several compounds, such as branched alkyl benzenes, phenates, sulfonates, alcohols, alkyl succinic anhydride and other products.

pentamer (RM50440)

Highly branched mono-olefin (C15 rich) used in isoparrafin and applications similar to propylene tetramer where a longer chain is required to improve solubility and other physical and chemical properties of various compounds.

PIBSA (OLOA® 15500)

1000 molecular weight polyisobutylene succinic anhydride commonly used as an intermediate for dispersants in lubricating oil applications and emulsifiers for various applications.

alkylate (AL650)

Branched chain alkyl benzene (C15 based) generally used in manufacturing of sulfonic acid and overbased detergents. This additive also has synthetic base oil, refrigeration and heat transfer fluid applications.

alkyphenol (OLOA 200)

Dodecylphenol (DDP) is a C12 branched alkylphenol (90% para) used as an intermediate in lubricating oil additives – phenate, inhibitors, ethoxylates, etc.


phenate (OLOA 219C)

260BN calcium phenate provides a base for neutralizing corrosive acids and excellent detergency for upper-ring, belt-deposit control under the high-operating temperatures encountered in supercharged diesel engines.

sulfonate (OLOA 249SX)

425BN high, overbased (HOB) sulfonate detergent/corrosion inhibitor provides a base for neutralizing corrosive acids and excellent detergency that prevents deposits in engines operating at high temperatures. It is also used in grease and metalworking applications.


dispersant (OLOA 11000 and OLOA 11001)

Ashless 1000 MW mono and bis succinimide dispersants provide excellent low-temperature, sludge, varnish control and effective dispersancy in gasoline and diesel engines, natural gas, and marine cylinder lubricants. They also have emulsifier properties for applications including explosives and metalworking.

dispersant (OLOA 12002)

1300 MW borated succinimide dispersant provides acid control, wear control, dispersancy and deposit control in both gasoline and diesel engines. It is also used for various other applications such as metalworking fluids, and as an emulsifier, where dispersancy, wear and corrosion protection is desired.


ZnDTP/ZDDP (OLOA 269R and OLOA 262)

Primary and secondary zinc dithiophosphates provide oxidation, copper-lead bearing corrosion and wear control in engine oils, hydraulic fluids and other industrial oils.
