Nynas’ first bio-based tyre oil supports tyre producer’s sustainability goals

As the market demand for non-mineral oil-based products continues to increase, Nynas is launching NYTEX BIO 6200, the company’s first tyre and rubber process oil to be produced using renewable feedstock. This new product will support customers in reaching their sustainability goals without sacrificing important technical properties.

NYNAS® NYTEX® BIO 6200 tyre oil has been specially developed to provide tyre companies with a product that meets the high-performance standards of all Nynas tyre and rubber oils, while supporting them in reaching their sustainability goals.

‘’The tyre industry has an ambition to become more sustainable, and the introduction of solutions such as NYTEX BIO 6200 demonstrates our commitment to supporting this, while providing our customers with the superior quality they have come to expect from Nynas as a leading global supplier,’’ says Dr Kamyar Alavi, Senior Technical Advisor.

NYTEX BIO 6200 is the first oil produced by Nynas to incorporate renewable feedstock. Moreover, this new addition to the tyre and rubber product portfolio aims to create sustainable value for customers and end users by reducing the rolling resistance of the tyre, an area where Nynas oils continue to deliver very strong results.

‘’During the testing and development stages we saw that NYTEX BIO 6200 not only matched the strict requirements placed on all Nynas tyre tread formulations, but in some areas even surpassed them,’’ notes Dr Kamyar Alavi.

NYTEX BIO 6200 is now available for sampling and order. An official product launch will take place during the Tire Technology Expo Conference in Hannover, on March 5-7, where Dr Kamyar Alavi will give a presentation entitled Sustainability and Performance: Non-Mineral Oil-based Tyre and Rubber Plasticisers.
