An introduction

Intermediates Products




An introduction


Alkylates have good low temperature properties, solubility, oxidative and thermal stability. Possible alternatives to more expensive esters or less oxidative stable naphthenic.

Current Alkylate Products

Qualitative Comparison

An introduction

Sulfonates – oleum and mixture of oleum and natural sulfonation yielding neutral and over based sulfonates of Sodium, Barium, Calcium,Magnesium


Sulfonic Acid – oleum sulfonated linear alkylaromatic sulfonic acid

Gelled Sulfonates – crystalline calcium sulfonates in solvent, oil or water carriers.

An introduction

Sulfonic Acid:oleum sulfonated, highly active sulfonic acid with little free acidity and almost no odor which yields products of very light color.



Detergent in lubricant (neutralizing acidic products of combustion and degradation).Rust and corrosion inhibitionBoundary and extreme pressure lubrication in metal working Base for Calcium Sulfonate grease (overbased) Emulsifiers

An introduction

Sulfonate New Products Under Development:

1. Biodegradable Rail Curve Lubricant

2. Grease base (No.1 and 2 grease available)

4. Magnesium Carboxylate

An introduction


Soltex Polybutene products are range from 350 to 2600 MW and from 12cSt at 40C to 4900cSt at 100C. We react, formulate and blend these – to make derivatives of PB and custom PB blends just right for the application.

Polybutenes increase viscosity, add tack, decompose cleanly, are synthetic,

NSF, Kosher and Halal approved, and have good oxidative and thermal stability.
