Ecolabel_logoThe EU Ecolabel is a label of environmental excellence that is awarded to products and services meeting high environmental standards throughout their life cycle: from raw material extraction, to production, distribution and disposal.

EU Ecolabel licence number UK/027/017 has been awarded to the ECOSURE EAF range.

These Ecolabel hydraulic fluids, based on synthetic esters, are typically used in water tight doors, ramps, platforms, davits, cranes, winches and capstans where there is potential for fluid loss to occur to the marine environment.

ECOSURE EAF 68 achieves over 330 minutes in the ASTM D-2272 RPVOT oxidation test, demonstrating greater performance and longer fluid life than many competing mineral and biodegradable hydraulic fluids. ECOSURE EAF exhibits excellent low temperature performance with a pour point of < -48°C, making it particularly suitable for use in deck equipment exposed to very cold climates.

ECOSURE EAF achieves biodegradability of greater than 60% in the 28 day OECD 301B test, and is considered non-toxic in the marine environment based on the following results:

FISH DAPHNIA ALGAE
LC50 exceeds 1000 mg/l EC50 exceeds 1000 mg/l EC50 exceeds 1000 mg/l

ECOSURE EAF meets the detailed ecological definitions and requirements laid down in the 2013 Vessel  General Permit (VGP) published by the US EPA in March 2013.

Attribute Benefit
Extended fluid life  Fewer fluid changes, less equipment downtime and lower overall cost of ownership
Improved lubricity  Less wear and longer pump life
Wider operating temperatures  Protects equipment from -35°C to over +100°C
Good hydrolytic stability Resists breakdown of the lubricant by water in high temperature situations
Good oxidative stability  Less sludge and system failures, longer fluid life and less fluid thickening
Good thermal stability  Less fluid thickening and system failures due to lower levels of corrosive decomposition products
Superior demulsification  Excellent water separation allowing easy removal of water and reduced pump wear
Good VI  Fluid remains within the desired viscosity over a broader temperature range
Good shear stability  Less viscosity loss, fewer fluid changes and prolonged pump life
Good seal compatibility  Less leakage and less equipment downtime
Good long term filterability  Less filter blockage and less equipment downtime
Biodegradable and minimally toxic Lower environmental risk
