NYCO ex­tends the new LuSC list with 11 Ny­cobase EL base fluid es­ters

Lubricant World - - PANORAMA WORLDWIDE -

The new cri­te­ria of com­pli­ance with the Eu­ro­pean Eco­la­bel were pub­lished in Novem­ber 2018. Com­pared to the pre­vi­ous ver­sion, the cur­rent re­quire­ments are more strin­gent on en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pact, amongst other as­pects. They also de­fine new cat­e­gories of lu­bri­cants that open the scope for in­creased us­age of cer­ti­fied lu­bri­cants in a greater num­ber of ap­pli­ca­tions.

The LuSC list ( Lu­bri­cant Sub­stance Clas­si­fi­ca­tion list) is a pos­i­tive list of com­po­nents that have been ap­proved for di­rect use in lu­bri­cat­ing for­mu­la­tions in­tended to be sub­mit­ted for Eu­ro­pean Eco­la­bel cer­ti­fi­ca­tion. Ap­pli­cants us­ing com­po­nents from the LuSC list do not need to pro­vide any ad­di­tional doc­u­ments to sup­port their com­pli­ance. Thus it rep­re­sents a for­mu­la­tion aid, mak­ing this some­times tricky task eas­ier for ac­tors wish­ing to de­velop, pro­mote and cer­tify low en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pact lu­bri­cants.

NYCO con­trib­utes ac­tively to this ben­e­fi­cial trend for the en­vi­ron­ment and en­riches the LuSC list with 11 base fluid es­ters, in­clud­ing 3 new prod­ucts: Ny­cobase 7300 EL, Ny­cobase 9300 EL and Ny­cobase 3118 EL. This prod­uct line con­sti­tutes a full range of high per­for­mance es­ters ded­i­cated to en­vi­ron­men­tally sen­si­tive ap­pli­ca­tions that are el­i­gi­ble to Eu­ro­pean Eco­la­bel cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, such as:

• hy­draulic sys­tems

• hy­draulic tur­bine oils

• oils for closed gears and bear­ings

• stern tube oils

• greases for ca­bles and open gears

• 2 stroke en­gine oils
