Biodegradable oils are combinations of selected biodegradable bases (vegetable oils, rape, sunflower, synthetic esters) which are non-toxic, and special additives which give them their desired properties. Needless to say, the choice of base oil is fundamental and will determine the oil’s performance and its service life.
- Easily degrade in the environment.
- The residues are less toxic or harmless.
- If synthetic oil is used then its properties can be tailor-made to meet specific requirements.
- High flashpoint.
- Reduction in the quantities of the product lost through evaporation.
- Low pour point
