Nynas has launched NYFLEX® 2120B, a hydrotreated, very low viscosity naphthenic oil, which is a reliable and cost-efficient alternative to traditional silicone fluids.

The FEICA European Adhesive and Sealant Conference & EXPO is a key event in the adhesive and sealant industry. Attracting influencers and decision makers from around the globe, delegates discuss the latest market drivers and trends, network with colleagues and customers, and look to the future with a focus on important topics such as developments in sustainability and technological advancements.

Nynas, a sponsor of this year’s event in Dubrovnik, Croatia, from 11-13 September, will be available to meet visitors at Table No. 7.

“Anna Eriksson, our Technical Manager, will present an extensive study of mineral oil in silicone sealant formulations, which examines the performance of different types of oil in terms of compatibility, rheological properties and UV exposure resistance,’’ says Ghislain de Quatrebarbes, Market Manager for the chemical industry segment.

A trusted supplier of highly refined process oil grades, Nynas offers a wide product portfolio, providing customers with tailored solutions that work for them, both globally and locally.

NYFLEX® 2120B has been specially developed for use in silicone sealant formulations. With a tight supply of silicone straining the market, driving up prices and causing difficulties for many sealant producers, this naphthenic process oil is an efficient alternative to traditional silicone fluids which reduces cost while maintaining the highest quality.

“With great fluidity, high solvency, and a natural prevention of bacterial growth, formulators can count on NYFLEX® 2120B to perform. We look forward to meeting our customers at FEICA 2019 to talk about the wide range of solutions we offer to help them achieve the best performance for their products,’’ concludes Ghislain de Quatrebarbes.
