Description of Paraffinic oils
This category of hydrocarbons constitutes branched chain or straight linked hydrocarbon molecules of various viscosities. Because the chain length will increase, the viscosity will increase, and also the rubber process oil becomes a lot of viscous. They find extensive usage in ethylene-propylene rubbers.
These are more stable and have the highest flash purpose for a given viscosity. This class of hydrocarbons constitutes branched chain or straight linked hydrocarbon molecules of various viscosities. As the chain length increases, the viscosity increases and the RPO becomes more viscous.
They find extensive usage in EPDM, Butyl rubbers. Include Paraffinic oils with high viscosity and high flash point is good for shelf life of the end product. The high viscosity and high flash point paraffinic oils are extensively used in EPDM profiles for automotive applications.
Advantages of Paraffinic oils
Paraffinic Oils are generally light in color having wide viscosity range, higher Aniline &Flash Point. It is extensively used in the manufacturing of butyl tubes, EPDM based rubber products, such as profiles, hose pipe& automotive Components.
