Naphthenic Mineral Oil
CROMPTON CORP.

This company offers Kaydol naphthenic mineral oil for use in thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) and adhesive formulations. Many TPE and adhesive manufacturers are searching for a suitable replacement for Shellflex 371, which will be discontinued as a result of Shell’s announced closing of its base oil production at Deer Park, Texas, and Martinez, Calif., facilities. Kaydol naphthenic mineral oil has been used successfully for decades in TPE and adhesive formulations based on styrenic block copolymers.
