Nynas oils contribute to safe and efficient winter tyres

Tyres made with Nynas oils provide low rolling resistance, reducing energy losses and fuel consumption, while maintaining wet grip for improved control on snow and ice.

Nynas naphthenic tyre oils are renowned for their positive contribution to rolling resistance - the force resisting motion when a body rolls on a surface – helping drivers conserve energy and fuel, and contributing to a more efficient drive.

Reduced rolling resistance, resulting in improved fuel economy and a reduction of CO2 emissions, is a key requirement which is expected to shape the industry going forward.

Tyres play an increasingly significant role as the fuel efficiency of cars is broken down into components. Through the benefits they offer, our oils add sustainable value for both manufacturers and drivers themselves,’’ says Dr. Herbert Fruhmann, Market Manager for Tyres.

With cold weather conditions impacting roads in many countries at this time of the year, it is critical that tyres made with Nynas oils do not compromise on other important technical properties.

Our NYTEX® tyre oil range is specially designed to be flexible at low temperatures, while offering durability and reliability, so that drivers can reach their destination safely,’’ adds Dr. Fruhmann.

It is the wax-free nature of naphthenic oils which makes them ideal when used as a tool for winter tyre formulations. Enabling retention of rubber elasticity and dynamic stiffness in winter conditions, naphthenic oils also improve traction, which is a key performance criterion for winter tyres.

Nynas will attend the Tire Technology Expo in Hannover, Germany, on February 25-27th, to meet with customers and producers, and showcase its NYTEX® tyre oil range. Performance of naphthenic oil in winter tyres will also be examined in a presentation by Technical Advisor Dr. Kamyar Alavi, entitled Get a grip: performance of naphthenic oil in winter tires.
