Bio lubricants for range of applications
25 January 2013
For many industries, there are strong arguments for use of biodegradable lubricants derived from crop-based renewable resources in ecologically sensitive applications. Such arguments are important where pollution of soil
FUCHS now offers bio lubricants for a host of applications where previously mineral oils were used.
The list includes: Metalworking and the manufacturing industries, quarrying and mining, and railways.
Formulations have been developed, trialled and put into service for almost all lubricant applications.
Advantages claimed include: High load carrying abilities, good anti-wear character, excellent Coefficient of Friction, low toxicity, natural multigrade properties, low evaporation rates - low emissions to atmosphere, and rapid biodegradability.
