Properties of bio-degradable lubricants

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
