SK Releases Bright Stock
SK Lubricants Americas last month started bringing in volumes of a new API Group II bright stock to the United States. SK120 BS is a bright stock with a high level of saturates, no sulfur content, a viscosity of 24 centistokes at 100 degrees Celsius and a viscosity index over 102. It has a low pour point between -30 and -36 C, which gives automotive gear lubricants extremely low Brookfield viscosity and requires less shear stable polymer treatments for SAE 75W-XX and SAE 80W-XX gear oils, the base oil producer notes. It can also be used in process oils and is available from SKs bulk terminal in Houston. Web: www.
