Nynas Launch NYNAS® BT 22, a new base oil for metalworking and lubricants applications

High in naphthenic carbon, NYNAS® BT 22 is the latest base oil to be added to the Nynas portfolio, a grade that will be greatly appreciated in a market where the 22 cSt viscosity is much sought after.

NYNAS® BT 22 is a highly refined base oil, with an optimised viscosity index (VI) for maximum cooling and to facilitate the blending with other base oils. “The low temperature performance of NYNAS® BT 22 is an improvement versus existing products at a similar viscosity,” says Dr. Gaia Franzolin, Nynas Global Marketing Director.

NYNAS BT 22 base oil has been developed to fulfil the increased demand for a grade with high naphthenic character. This new product is versatile enough to perform in stable emulsions and as a viscosity correction fluid in various lubricant applications.

 “The emulsion stability of NYNAS® BT 22 is excellent because of its high naphthenic carbon type content (Cn) and suitable aniline point,” adds Professor Thomas Norrby, Senior Specialist Lubricants at Nynas“NYNAS BT 22 will find its place in metalworking fluids formulations such as emulsion coolants for metalworking operations with chip removal, which involve cutting, drilling, milling and turning. NYNAS BT 22 performs well in industrial lubricant applications including hydraulic fluids and greases.

NYNAS BT 22 offers several advantages over paraffinic oils, such as excellent low-temperature properties and superior solvency. The product can be blended with other types of base oils to increase, or reduce, viscosity and improve the solvency of the blends.

“Remaining committed to providing consistent and high-quality specialty naphthenic oils worldwide, we are making NYNAS BT 22 available on a global basis through our extensive supply and distribution network,” concludes Dr. Franzolin.

Time to go circular

More than simply recycling, circular economy is about capturing a larger part of the value that is typically lost in our traditional linear economic model. For Nynas, a circular approach is one of the things that separates us from regular oil companies.
