Polymer Products: Hydrobrite® Plastics Oils; Sonolube® Compressor Lubricants; White Mineral Oils; Petrolatums; Microcrystalline Waxes

Sonneborn has a long-standing commitment to the polymer industry. We have been consistently at the forefront of developing the most innovative high-purity hydrocarbon products, affording polymer producers greater manufacturing efficiency and higher quality finished products.

As the polymer industries continue to advance, new materials, processes and additional capacities are constantly being developed to accommodate the increased global demand for more and innovative polymers. At the same time, new applications are being found within the industry for highly refined petroleum products, such as Hydrobrite Plastics Oils, Hydrobrite PVC Oil, Sonolube Compressor Lubricants and many other Sonneborn products. Polymer manufacturers, molders, and extruders are incorporating these versatile products into their resin formulations as lubricants and plasticizers as well as processing aids, mold releases, wetting agents, color diluents and resin and catalyst carriers.

Highly refined white mineral oils, petrolatums, microcrystalline waxes and compressor lubricants are essential not only for their functional utility and stability, but also because they meet FDA food grade mineral oil requirements as well as European food contact legislation. This is a critical consideration in producing plastics for food packaging and food handling, toys, personal hygiene articles, and many other purposes.

Adhesives Products: Pharmaceutical Grade and Technical Grade White Mineral Oils; Microcrystalline Waxes

Sonneborn White Mineral Oils, including industry standard Kaydol (with a higher naphthenic content) and Multiwax Microcrystalline Waxes are used to reduce melt viscosity, economically extend, and plasticize adhesive formulations and pressure-sensitive applications. Our commitment to the adhesive industry is another reason we are among the world’s leading white mineral oil and microcrystalline wax suppliers.
