In a study entitled "Blends: Friends or Foes?" Nynas researchers argue that the lubrication industry has a lot to gain from promoting base oil blends for grease formulations.
Blends offer the opportunity to turn the disadvantages of the current surplus of Group II and Group III oils into an advantage. Nynas researchers found that by blending these with naphthenic oil, the two main drawbacks of Group II and III base stock – reduced solvency or solvent power, and a lack of high viscosity oil grades – can be overcome easily. In their study, they produced three lithium-based greases by blending Group I, II and III oil with naphthenic oil. All three greases displayed good results in a number of tests. The lubricating grease based on the blend of paraffinic Group II and naphthenic oil performed particularly well.
As usual, Nynas will have a strong presence at the STLE Annual Meeting, presenting three different technical papers.Read more about The premier event for tribology research and lubrication engineering
Nynas has launched an Arctic grade transformer oil that withstands the toughest of climate conditions. It complies with one of the world’s most advancedstandards regulating the use of mineral oils in transformers. The new oil, NYTRO® Polaris GXN, is an example of Nynas’ broad global product range thatmeets practically any regional requirements.Read more about Arctic grade transformer oil to withstand the toughest climate
