Rubber Process Oil Description
Rubber Process oil is produced by Crude oil distillation process obtained from the composition and chemical interactions and isolation material extracted called Raffinate.
The primary characteristics is the presence of the double bonded mix ring carbon structure. Aromatic extracts procured from refineries are suitably blended to meet stringent specifications with different Viscosity.
Heavy RPO is also an aromatic process oil with higher viscosity and is specifically developed for use as an extender oil in the manufacture of polystyrene butadiene rubber. This aromatic type of rubber process oil is dark in color and has good solvency. It is compatible with most rubber polymers.
Rubber process oil, both synthetic and natural is commercially used to produce products from rubber bands to a toy to the giant tires for various vehicles including aircraft. Rubber Process Oils are used during the mixing of rubber compounds.
Rubber process oil is an oil composition which has a kinematic viscosity at 100 °C of from 32 to 50 CST and which contains less than 3%. Polynuclear aromatic compounds are employed as a process oil for rubber compounds, especially aromatic rubbers.

Heavy Rubber Process Oil
heavy / high Aromatic Process Oil Product Is Fully Rich Aromatic RPO By-Product From Solvent Extracting Process To Modify Physical Properties Of The Vulcanization And To Reduce The Cost Of The Finished Product. This Product Has Good Elastomeric Compatibility And Low Volatility. heavy Aromatic Process Oil Well-Known According To Its Viscosity Which Meet ASTM standards and ISO 3104 (American Society For Testing And Materials) Standard Test Method For Kinematic Viscosity Of Transparent And Opaque Liquids (Calculation Of Dynamic Viscosity).
Uses of RPO
It is compatible with most rubber polymers and suitable for use in the manufacture of automobile rubber tires, belting, battery case etc. where color is not an important parameter. Heavy RPO was specially developed for use in SBS rubber.
