Nynas launches process oil for low temperature ink production and silicone fluid replacement

By introducing NYFLEX® 2120B, a hydrotreated, very low viscosity naphthenic oil, Nynas is providing a process oil ideal for use as a printing ink distillate in heatset formulations, as well as a reliable and cost-efficient alternative to traditional silicone fluids.

NYFLEX® 2120B is a hydrocarbon fluid characterised by its solvent power and excellent fluidity. Its unique naphthenic characteristics, allied with high purity, make NYFLEX® 2120B compatible with a wide range of resins used in heatset printing inks (such as C5 and C9 resins, as well as rosin resins). Offering the added advantage of low solubilisation temperatures, NYFLEX® 2120B also meets the most demanding industry requirements, such as the Blue Angel environmental standard.

‘’This latest addition to our process oil portfolio represents a real innovation for the printing industry,’’ explains Ghislain de Quatrebarbes, Market Manager, Chemical Industry. ‘’It is a significant improvement on the paraffinic distillates which are used currently, facilitating the production of low temperature process inks while maintaining a HSE profile that meets the highest standards.’’

NYFLEX® 2120B has also been designed for use in silicone sealant formulations. As the media reports that a strong demand continues to outweigh the global supply of silicone - with the effect of driving up prices -silicone-based product and sealant producers are looking for an efficient and high-quality alternative.

‘’With a tight supply straining the market and causing difficulties for many silicone sealant producers, Nynas is providing the solution,’’ adds Ghislain de Quatrebarbes. ‘’Its fluidity, solvency, and natural prevention of bacterial growth make NYFLEX® 2120B an alternative to traditional silicone fluids which formulators can count on to perform.’’

Nynas is committed to providing consistent and flexible deliveries of specialty naphthenic oils worldwide, and NYFLEX® 2120B is available now in all regions, through their global supply and distribution network.
