Synesstic™ AN base stocks for food-processing equipment lubrication

Choosing Synesstic Alkylated Naphthalene (AN) base stocks  to extend the performance of finished food-grade lubricants in extreme operating environments – that’s just smart.

Available in high (Synesstic 12) and low (Synesstic 5) viscosity grades, Synesstic AN base stocks can help formulators achieve optimal performance with a synthetic lubricant in applications with incidental food contact:

  • U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) inventory of Effective Food Contact Substance Notifications 
  • H1/HX-1 National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) registered 
  • Kosher certification

With ever-tightening health and safety regulations and limits on additive selection/treat rates, Synesstic AN is the smart choice for improving lubricant performance in the moist air and high temperatures often found in food processing. It also gives formulators the peace of mind of knowing that food safety and quality won’t be compromised in the event of incidental contact.

Benefits of using Synesstic AN include: 

  • Thermal and oxidative stability for improved lubricant life and deposit control 
  • Enhanced hydrolytic stability for use in high-moisture environments
