  • Fertile formulations

    Having established in-house coating and testing of solid fertiliser, a Nynas researcher finds that naphthenic process oils offer coating formulations capable of reducing both dust and caking issues.

  • Solvency offers great solutions

    High solvent power is the secret of the success of naphthenic oils in chemical applications. Anna Eriksson, Technical Manager, Nynas Naphthenics, offers a couple of examples that explain why.

  • Hot solution for hot melts

    By boosting the compatibility of ingredients, naphthenic mineral oils are providing hot melt adhesive manufacturers with new and more flexible formulations

  • Mineral oil adhesives in metallocene polyolefin hot melts

    During the past few years, metallocene polyolefin elastomers (mPO) have become significant market players and are growing continuously in several industrial segments.

  • Naphthenic oil improves artificial fertilisers

    The use of fertilisers around the world to boost agricultural production is both vital and constantly under critical scrutiny. Developing products that provide optimum benefits both economically and from an ecological viewpoint is an important challenge for the artificial fertiliser producer. Very small quantities of oil are employed in the production of fertilisers. The market demands optimal products and every link of the chain must be taken into consideration, including the properties of the oil being used.

  • Assisting an agent

    Compatible with all sorts of rubber, naphthenic oil facilitates the dispersion of insoluble sulfur, the vulcanising agent used in the production of tyre rubber. Anna Eriksson explains how this helps improve the quality of the final rubber.
