DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., August 26, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Univar Inc. (NYSE: UNVR) ("Univar Solutions"), a global chemical and ingredient distributor and provider of value-added services, has been selected to distribute Eastman Turbo Oils and Skydrol™ aviation hydraulic fluids to the military aviation market. Both product lines have been tested and approved across a range of military specifications and have been in use for more than 50 years.
With this agreement, Univar Solutions can leverage its expertise in the military chemicals, oils and lubricant markets to broaden the availability of Eastman Turbo Oils and Skydrol. Eastman Turbo Oils are not only designed to meet the needs of demanding turbine engines, but also include products formulated to meet the high load-carrying capacity of helicopter transmission systems. As a primary fluid used in commercial aerospace service hydraulics, Skydrol's fire-resistance and ability to retain a low viscosity fits well with aircraft conditions of low temperatures at high altitudes.
"I am excited to expand the existing and excellent relationship between Univar Solutions and Eastman to the aviation military market for our Turbo Oil and Skydrol product lines. We appreciate Univar Solutions' expertise in serving this segment of the market and look forward to future combined success," said Matt Stockum, Eastman Aviation Solutions sales director.
"We are extremely excited to represent Eastman's interests in military markets," commented Matt Mannette, business manager for military and aerospace at Univar Solutions. "Not only does this agreement continue to strengthen our companies' existing relationship, it also allows both of us to better serve this extremely dynamic market segment."
