Additional information

The boiling point of other lubricant base oils ranges from 200 to 800°C. A range of 207 to 750°C was reported by CONCAWE (2010a). The boiling point was determined according to the EN 15199 and ASTM D 2887 method. An additional boiling point range of 300 to 800°C for other lubricant base oils was obtained from the CONCAWE (1997) Lubricating Oil Basestocks Product Dossier. The boiling point range for hydrotreated light lubricant base oils is 240-418°C and the boiling point range for hydrotreated heavy naphthenic lubricant base oils is 338-604°C (API, 1987).
