NOVVI LLC Gains Denison HFO Approval; First Of Its Kind
Novvi LLC announced that it has secured Denison HF-0, HF-1, and HF-2 approval on hydraulic oil using Novvi’s NovaSpec EL34 base oil.
“From the very beginning of the molecular design of NovaSpec base oil and the formulation of our hydraulic fluid, the Denison HF-0 was a key target. ” noted Dr. Paula Vettel, Director of Formulations at Novvi. “Our customers wanted a product that met the most challenging industry standards, delivering both performance and environmental standards of renewability, biodegradability, and toxicity” continued Vettel.
The securing of a Denison HF-0 approval, together with NovaSpec EL34’s position on the EU ECOLABEL Lubricants Substances Classification (LuSC) list, is a first of its kind. Novvi’s NovaSpec EL34 customers can use the base oil to meet Denison HF-0, as well as meet ECOLABEL requirements along with other environmental specifications such as VGP.
“We are proud of the collaborative effort between ourselves and our additive partners” continued Vettel. ‘We brought our NovaSpec base oils and our understanding of how to formulate with it, and delivered what our customers view as an important approval to gaining business around the world. ‘
Typically, the base oils used to meet EU ECOLABEL are based on various types of natural and synthetic esters. But those esters are prone to breakdown in the demanding conditions that Denison requires to pass its T6H20C pump and bench tests for HF-0 certification.
Novvi has made its base oil available to its customers as well as rebrand opportunities for its proprietary formulations. Customers have already begun to secure rebrand approvals from Denison. Novvi has finally delivered a product that meets the performance expectations of hydraulic users around the world along with the environmental benefits to protect it.
