NYCO has recently gained NSF HX-1 registration for a new synthetic ester, Nycobase® 30409 FG, a multi-purpose neopolyol ester.
Nycobase® 30409 FG combines high resistance to oxidation, low volatility, high viscosity index, low pour point, and inherent friction modification/anti-wear properties while keeping cost attractiveness, the company said in a statement.
The product is therefore recommended for use in any lubricating application, and in the formulation of lubricants for the food industry in particular, where high performance is required.
“NYCO has been proposing HX-1 certified esters since 2009, starting with three products. Responding to the increasing demand from the lubricant industry for developing oils and greases suitable for the lubrication of equipment where incidental food contact can occur, NYCO has continuously extended its food grade offer. Now, our ester portfolio includes nine products, covering all applications and providing our customers with solutions to formulate high performance lubricants for the food industry,” said NYCO’s Christophe Bocquez, who is director of the company’s Industrial & Automotive Division.
NYCOBASE’s® food grade series includes nine ester base fluids suitable for the formulation of H1 lubricants for incidental food contact. These fluids are used in multiple applications including hydraulic fluids, gear oils, compressor oils, greases and chain lubricants.
Products from the NYCOBASE® FG series are Halal and Kosher certified, and possess superior thermal stability as well as good low temperature properties. Many of them also show high biodegradability and renewability levels.
These products are available in bulk and in packs (drum, IBC) via NYCO’s network of licensed distributors and subsidiaries.
