NYCO is launching Nycobase® SNG EL and Nycobase® SMP EL, performance base fluids for environmentally sensitive applications. Together with Nycobase® STM EL and Nycobase® 8318S EL, they constitute a line of saturated synthetic esters that comply with the requirements of the European Ecolabel and the Vessel General Permit. They are also LuSC listed, thus extending the line of now 13 registered Nycobase® EL esters on this list.
Nycobase® SNG EL and Nycobase® 8318S EL (ISO VGV 46), STM EL (ISO VG 100), and SMP EL (ISO VG 150) cover a wide range of viscosities. They are designed to deliver the best performance features in marine applications (hydraulic systems, stern tubes, thrusters, stabilisers, rudders, propellers, wire ropes, etc.) and in any other partial or total loss lubrication applications, where lubricants may be released to the environment (dams, tunnels and other public works lubrication systems).
In particular, they demonstrate excellent oxidation stability, air and water separation properties, as well as superior seal compatibility performance. They also show excellent lubricity features.
Nycobase® SNG EL, 8318S EL, STM EL and SMP EL allow you to minimize the environmental impact of your lubricants whilst ensuring the best performance features for your customers.
