Embracing the Change: Naphthenic Rubber Process Oils for EPDM Applications
Naphthenic process oils have been largely used as process oils for the rubber industry. Their performance in the tire rubber applications, has been a proven since many years of use by the tire industry, while their performance in other rubber types, such as EPDM, may not be equally paramount.
In this presentation, we will focus on the performance and benefits of naphthenic rubber process oils in EPDM applications. Test compounds are designed to cover a range of different industrial applications, and plasticizing effect of naphthenic rubber process will be compared to that of other plasticisers commonly used in the industry.
