Increasing NYCO flagship products’ shelf life

NYCO announces the shelf life and re-test dates of some lubricating oils and greases have been modified to bring solutions to our customers to reduce waste and inventory costs, and more importantly to provide our customers more sustainable products.

In fact, laboratory testing of samples packaged and stored in different type of containers and conditions showed that the products’ characteristics and performances remain satisfactory after a prolonged time of storage:

  • Turbonycoil 600 – a synthetic aviation turbine oil approved against MIL-PRF-23699 Class STD, SAE AS-5780 Class SPC, DCSEA 299/A and Def Stan 91-101: Shelf life in sealed cans is extended from 6 to 10 years; re-test after 4 years is no longer necessary and therefore the re-test date is removed from the documentation.
  • Turbonycoil 3516 – a mineral aviation turbine oil for aircraft engine fuel control system approved against MIL-PRF-6081E and AIR 3516/A: Shelf life is extended from 6 to 10 years for any containers; re-test after 4 years is no longer necessary and therefore the re-test date is removed from the documentation.
  • Nyco Grease GN 148 – a multi-purpose synthetic aviation grease approved against BMS 3-33C, AIMS-09-06-002 and MIL-PRF-23827 – and Nyco Grease GN 3058 – a synthetic aviation grease for wheel bearings approved against SAE AMS-3058 and AIMS-09-06-003: Shelf life of all containers is 6 years; re-test after 3 years is no longer necessary and therefore the re-test date is removed from the documentation.
