Calsol 5 Series, Nonstaining Naphthenic Oils
When the highest levels of color stability, oxidation and aging resistance are required, the Calsol 5 Oils are a logical choice.
Calsol 5 Series Process Oils are light colored, nonstaining naphthenic oils. They combine excellent initial color and color stability with intermediate levels of aromatic and naphthenic molecular structure. This combination provides good compatibility with unsaturated synthetic polymers at the oil loading used in critical color applications. The higher levels of refining applied here provide better resistance to aging and color degradation as evidenced by the very low levels of polar compounds, measured by ASTM D-2007 and the very low values of UV absorptivity measured by ASTM D-2008. The oil components that absorb ultraviolet light at 260 nm are aromatic compounds that have been shown to contribute significantly to color shifts, oxidation, failure on aging and UV instability when exposed to light. In addition, the naphthenic character of the Calsol 5 Series Oils makes them an ideal choice whenever the balance of hardness and color stability is critical. For example: thermoplastics, radial and styrene block.
