BIOGREASE EP2 is a Lithium/Calcium thickened lubricating grease based on fully saturated synthetic esters. It offers improved operation and lower environmental risk leading to overall cost savings.

BIOGREASE EP2 is designed for use in sensitive marine environments and can be used in a variety of marine applications which demand a NLGI 2 grease.  It is primarily used for the lubrication of bearings and as a protective coating for exposed equipment where there is a potential for loss to occur, for example from wire ropes, winches, rudder stocks or deck equipment.

BIOGREASE EP2 may be applied manually or by suitable mechanical applicators (e.g. grease compressor).  The grease also has a wide operating temperature with a lower working temperature of -25°C and an upper temperature of +130°C.

BIOGREASE EP2 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:

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

BIOGREASE EP2 meets the detailed ecological definitions and requirements laid down in the 2013 Vessel General Permit (VGP) published by the US EPA in March 2013.
