Specialty esters (Group V) for replacement of mineral oils
CEREPLAS™ specialty esters enhance the performance of functional fluids (e.g. in hydraulics), enabling formulators to move away from mineral oils. These synthetic esters are sold under the CEREPLAS™ trademark.
Within the adipates range, CEREPLAS™ DTDA is mainly used in biodegradable hydraulic oils due to the relatively high viscosity for a diester, good oxidation and thermal stability, low pour point, and high flash point. CEREPLAS™ DIDA is used in glass lubricants, greases, and as a seal swell in PAO-based oil. CEREPLAS™ DOA is used primarily in automotive engine and gear oils.
The trimellitates range (CEREPLAS™ OTM / L8TM / L810TM / IDTM / B68TM / B100TM) typically finds use in high-temperature applications – such as compressor oils and chain oils – due to their low-volatility, viscosity, or diluent performance.
The sebacate esters are used in synthetic engine oils for automotive or jet engines due to their high-thermal and oxidation stability.
