As the media reports that global supply of silicone remains tight and continued strong demand drives up prices, silicone based product and sealant producers are looking for a cost-efficient and compatible alternative.
Nynas has developed a range of specially designed silicone fluid alternatives: NYFLEX® 8120, NYFLEX® 8005, and NYFLEX® 3011.
Although we primarily think of the construction industry as the main user of silicone, it forms an important part of a wide variety of applications: the manufacture of marine vessel, car, and aviation parts; healthcare and pharmaceutical products; electronic components; personal care and consumer products; and industrial processes, including lubricants and anti-foaming agents.
With overall production capacity unable to meet the market demand, raw material costs soaring over the last eighteen months, and prices increasing accordingly, Nynas' products represent a cost-efficient and high-quality option for helping to bridge the supply gap.
''Our NYFLEX® range of silicone fluid products ensure the highest compatibility, UV stability, and bacteria growth prevention,'' explains Ghislain de Quatrebarbes, Market Manager, Chemical Industry.
''With a tight supply straining the market and causing difficulties for many silicone sealant producers, we can provide a solution.''
More information about the NYFLEX® product range can be found in our Process Oils section, and Nynas' team of technical specialists are ready to help find the right solution for you www.nynas.com/en/contacts/
A number of initiatives are needed to attract new groups and in general to increase diversity in the industry. There is otherwise the risk of a serious skills shortage in the future.Read more about Talking point: recruiting new talent
