Plastol™ 537

ExxonMobil specialties , Ghana

Product Description

Plastol 537 is a paraffinic low-colour mineral oil, complying with the purity requirements defined by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in chapter 21 CFR 178.3620(c). Although less refined than other Plastol technical white oil grades, it has a markedly better colour and colour stability than conventional rubber process oils.

 

The quality of ExxonMobil White Oils is assured for every delivery. These products are produced and controlled according to the ExxonMobil Product Quality Management System, EN ISO 9000 or equivalent standard.

 

Applications

Elastomers

     •  Plastol 537 is recommended as an extender oil in EPDM or EPDM-based Thermoplastic Olefinics (TPO) and Thermoplastic Vulcanisates (TPV). It provides improved stability against colour and mechanical degradation of EPDM bales during storage, when compared to conventional extender oils. Due to a much higher degree of refining leading to very low sulphur content, Plastol 537 is also well adapted to peroxide curing of EPDM or Thermoplastic Vulcanisates (EPDM).
