NYNAS™ T 600 – A high Viscosity Addition to Nynas’ Base Oil Portfolio

Clear and bright in appearance, NYNAS™ T 600 is a highly refined naphthenic oil with a viscosity of approximately 600 cSt at 40 ⁰C, and further extends the range of solutions which Nynas offers globally to the grease and lubricant industry.

Dr. Gaia Franzolin, Nynas Global Marketing Manager Naphthenics, advises that NYNAS T 600 is suitable for all applications where high viscosity and high solvent power are critical, and notes that NYNAS T 600 offers several advantages over paraffinic oils, including excellent low-temperature properties.

The new base oil is an ideal component for lubricating greases, where it improves process economies with a reduction of Lithium soap up to 50%. NYNAS T 600 is also suitable for use in several industrial lubricant formulations, such as gear oil, metal rolling and forming.

“Formulators can also use NYNAS T 600 naphthenic base oil in combination with paraffinic oils to increase viscosity, improve low-temperature performance, and enhance additive solubility as a result of its excellent solvency,” says Dr. Franzolin.

Nynas is committed to providing consistent and high-quality naphthenic oils worldwide, and NYNAS T 600 will be made available in all regions, through its outstanding supply and distribution network.
