Naphthenic process oils show excellent compatibility with non-polar polymers such as Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer rubber (EPDM) and Butyl Rubber (IIR). To properly plasticize a rubber, a suitable solvent power is required. Low volatility is a key requirement in the curing and processing of EPDM. Our highly refined process oils from the Nyflex and Nypar series offer the best solution.
We offer plasticizing oils in a wide range of viscosities and polarities ensuring a high compatibility with each rubber. Some of our products even fulfil the FDA(b) and FDA(c) criteria which may be important for certain applications.
If a picture is said to say more than a thousand words, at least the same can be said for diagrammes in technical contexts. In the graph below, a schematic overview of Nynas offering for the industrial rubber industry can be seen.
