Naphthenic base oils are known for their high solvency, low pour points, and appealing color characteristics, making them perfect for a diverse array of applications such as metalworking fluids, grease, adhesives, printing inks, and transformer oils.

Applications of Naphthenic Base Oil:

Naphthenic base oils are utilized in a variety of end-use applications, including printing inks, adhesives and sealants, gear oils, oil extender polymers, process oils, metalworking, and battery separators. They are extensively used across several industries, such as automotive, industrial, and tire manufacturing.

Naphthenic oils are the preferred choice for applications that require:
  • High solvency
  • Exceptional low-temperature properties
  • High compatibility with specific resins or polymers
  • Low pour points
  • Low paraffin (wax) content
  • Good color

Produced by hydro-treating sweet crude distillates at pressures over 2500 psi, naphthenic base oils feature a low pour point, excellent liquidity, low wax content, and low aromatic content. Moreover, they exhibit outstanding low-temperature capabilities, enhancing the low-temperature performance of lubricant compositions. Naphthenic base oils outperform paraffinic oils in low-temperature conditions, making them ideal for hydraulic and automatic transmission fluid formulations. Their high solvency power also allows naphthenic oils to respond effectively to antioxidants and additives.

Specific Applications of Naphthenic Base Oil:
  • Metalworking fluids
  • Industrial lubricants
  • Transformer oil
  • Lubricant base oil
  • Process oil
  • Hydraulic fluids
  • Pump oil
  • Paint and coatings
  • Insecticides
