Gazpromneft Lubricants, operator of the Gazprom Neft lubricants business, reported on August 28, 2017, that the company has begun production of a specialist lubricant-plasticizer, Gazpromneft TDAE, at its Omsk Lubricants Plant, using its own unique patent technology.
The new product, designed to give plasticity and flexibility to rubber, tyres, and fabricated rubber products, meets the latest international environmental requirements.
Gazpromneft TDAE plasticizers have successfully passed EC registration requirements under the REACH Regulation on chemical safety, as well as laboratory testing on the basis of 24 metrics demanded by one of the world’s most important international tyre producers.
In addition to the tyre component, the research cycle was also applied to finished tyres manufactured using Gazpromneft TDAE.
Coverings for sports tyres demonstrated full compliance – as tested under bench testing and on a special track – with European standards for finished products.
Investment in the project, including the modernisation of a 17,000-tonnes-per-year plasticizer facility at the Omsk Refinery, stands at more than RUB 400 million.
Alexander Trukhan, CEO, Gazpromneft Lubricants, commented: «Gazprom Neft was Russia’s 1st vertically integrated company to start production of safe and environmentally friendly plasticizers, to European standards. The use of pure raw materials, in combination with the application of advanced technologies, gives these oils excellent performance characteristics and makes them safe for human health. This is a 100% domestic product, produced in Russia, from Russian components, under Russian technologies.»
