Chevron ISO 100 is a very high grade of synthetic hydraulic/turbine oil with exceptional high temperature stability.

ISO designation is industrial oil
ISO oil used in Food Machines has an FM designation,

The comparison in viscosity for ISO 100 is in the range of SAE 30 weight oil

ISO 100 is a designation of viscosity. It is comparable to a SAE 30/40 weight.  You would need more information to determine how the oil was formulated. Could be a compressor oil, hydraulic oil, etc. I doubt it would be an engine oil if it does not have the engine type ratings.

You would have to find more information from the packaging label. You have two identifiers, the manufacturer is Chevron and the viscosity is ISO 100. The other missing identifier would be the product identifier. There is no way of determining the use the product was formulated for without the product name.

But it makes little difference if you are going to use it for bar oil. It may not have the tackifiers that bar oil has but it is heavy enough to cling to your bar and chain long enough to provide the necessary lubrication. The only problem may be flow in cold weather.

Oils are formulated first by blending various feed stocks to establish the viscosity. Then they add various special additives like anti wear, extreme pressure, detergents, seal softeners, tackifiers, colors, etc for the intended use. It's nearly impossible to backtrack to determine the additives without a product label.

So it would be risky to use as an engine oil or hydraulic oil, compressor oil, or gear oil where specific additives are essential. Bar oil just needs to stick so the lubricant can do it's single pass job. It does not have to resist long term breakdown from heat nor suspend carbon nor keep seals soft nor protect gear teeth from extreme pressures. Just stick to it.

Here is another Chevron ISO 100 that Google found.  Rando HD

Now we know that Chevron makes both Aries and Rando HD in an ISO 100 viscosity, nothing more.

OK, my Reply #2 was a direct quote from a Chevron site that I Googled.  That was their definition, not mine.   :)
