• Rubbers, either synthetic or natural, both are commercially
used to produce products from rubber bands to a toy to the
giant tires for various vehicles including aircrafts.
• Rubber Process Oils are used during mixing of rubber
compounds. These help in improving the dispersion of
fillers and flow characteristics of the compound during
further processing. IPOL Rubber process oils are specially
developed taking into consideration the type of rubber and
the end product applications.
Rubber Process Oils can be broadly divided in following three categories:
• Aromatic types: The primary characteristics of aromatic
hydrocarbons are the presence of the double bonded mix
ring carbon structure. Aromatic extracts procured from
selected refineries and suitably blended to meet stringent
specifications, are used for compounding batches to
manufacture Tires, calendared and molded sheets, Tread
• Naphthenic types: Naphthenic are a class of hydrocarbons
also referred to as ‘cycloparaffins’. Though their structure is similar to the aromatic ring, these are single
bonded thus having a stable structure. Several such hydrocarbon rings may be linked indicating a variety
of available grades. Their unique color stability, solubility and good thermal stability makes them ideal for
molded articles, slippers, LPG tubes, floor tiles, etc.
• Paraffinic types: This class of hydrocarbons constitutes branched chain or straight linked hydrocarbon
molecules of various viscosities. As the chain length increases, the viscosity increases and the rubber process.
Top uses of Rubber Processing Oil
Oil becomes more viscous. They find extensive usage in EPDM, Butyl rubbers. IPOL grades include
Paraffinic oils with high viscosity and high flash point for better shelf life of the end product. The
high viscosity and high flash point IPOL paraffinic oils are extensively used in EPDM profiles for
• Used during the process of manufacturing rubber products such as automobile tires,
rubber shock absorbers, footwear, industrial hoses, wire and cable coverings, flooring
materials and carrier fluid or solvent in manufacture of adhesives, sealants, polishes and
• To improve physical properties of vulcanization to reduce the cost of finished rubber
• Tire, Rubber and Dhoop (incense) Industry.
• Used as a Lubricant in Rubber Processing.
• Used in manufacturing of White Oil.
• Used as a component in Ink Production.
