Together with Chevron Phillips Chemicals International NV as the world’s largest manufacturer of alpha olefins, we are your partner for AlphaPlus® NAOs.
In the petrochemical industry, “olefins” is a particularly used generic term and stands for all acyclic and cyclic hydrocarbons with one or more carbon-carbon double bonds. This does not include aromatic compounds. All alkenes, cycloalkenes and polyenes are considered olefins. AlphaPlus® Normal Alpha Olefins (NOA) have a high purity and an extensive quality range (C4 to C30+).
AlphaPlus® NAOs with highly accessible terminal double bonds are ideal materials for the manufacture of numerous products. Alpha-olefins and their derivatives are used extensively as polyethylene comonomers, plasticizers, synthetic motor oils, lubricants, automotive additives, surfactants, paper products and in a wide range of specialty applications. As important petrochemical building blocks, the possible uses in developing new chemical products are practically unlimited.
