BIOGREASE EP offers improved operation and lower environmental risk leading to overall cost savings.
BIOGREASE EP is a Lithium/Calcium thickened lubricating grease based on fully saturated synthetic esters. It is available in NLGI 0 and NLGI 2 grades.
BIOGREASE EP2 is designed for the lubrication of bearings and as a protective coating for exposed equipment in sensitive marine environments where there is a potential for loss to occur, for example from wire ropes, winches, rudder stocks or deck equipment.
BIOGREASE EP has a biodegradability of greater than 60% in the 28 days OECD 301B test and is proven to be non-toxic in the marine environment based on the following results:
|LC50 exceeds 1000 mg/l||EC50 exceeds 1000 mg/l||EC50 excedes 1000 mg/l|
BIOGREASE EP meets the detailed ecological definitions and requirements laid down in the 2013 Vessel General Permit (VGP) published by the US EPA in March 2013.
|Wider operating temperature||Protects equipment from -25ºC to +130ºC|
|Good adhesion||Resists the washing action of rain and seawater|
|Good corrosion protection||Provides rust resistance to steel and copper|
|Reduces wear and friction||Protects and extends equipment life|
|Good elastomer compatibility||Compatible with most sealing materials including Nitrile and Fluoroelastomers|
|Biodegradable and minimally toxic||Lower environmental risk|
