Stockholm – Nynas has introduced a hydrotreated, very low viscosity naphthenic process oil as a “reliable and cost-efficient” alternative to traditional silicone fluids.
Nyflex 2120B is a hydrocarbon fluid characterised by its solvent power and "excellent" fluidity, Nynas said in a 17 June statement.
The high-purity oil has naphthenic characteristics making it compatible with a wide range of resins used in heatset printing inks, including C5 and C9 resins.
In addition to that, the oil has also been designed for use in silicone sealant formulations.
The product’s fluidity, solvency, and prevention of bacterial growth make it an ‘efficient and high-quality’ alternative to traditional silicone fluids, said Ghislain de Quatrebarbes, market manager, chemical industry.
‘’With a tight supply straining the market and causing difficulties for many silicone sealant producers, Nynas is providing the solution,’’ he added.
