    Rubber process oils (RPO) function as internal lubricants, improve the blending of the rubber formulations, facilitate the incorporation of fillers and other additives, improve certain physical characteristics, and function as low-cost extenders. Group I plant closures and restriction on use of high poly aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) content oils for tire manufacturing in Europe has created an opening for new products to penetrate into this market. Against this backdrop, this report will explore market opportunities for aromatic, paraffinic, and naphthenic rubber process oils.
