Aromatic Oils are generally dark in colour and are compatible with most rubber polymers. They are extensively used in the manufacture of automobile tyres, tread rubber, conveyor belts, automotive components, floor mats, etc., where the colour of the finished product is not important.
Paraffinic Oils are usually light in colour and have a wide viscosity range and higher aniline and flash points. They are used in the manufacturing of butyl tubes and EPDM-based rubber products, such as profiles, hosepipes, and automotive components.
Rubber Process Oils
Naphthenic Oil has good colour stability, solubility, and thermal stability. It is extensively used in the manufacturing of footwear, LPG tubes, hot-water bags, and moulded and extruded products. In addition to the above mentioned oils, Gandhar manufactures low-PCA oils: new-generation oils that meet European Union requirements. They are used to manufacture automobile tyres, tread rubber, conveyor belts, automotive components, floor mats, etc., where the colour of the final product is not an issue.
