Lubrication is an essential maintenance task that has to be done even in sensitive environments. Fortunately, it no longer has to follow the status quo of using polluting petroleum-based greases. Instead, maintenance crews can now make a lower impact on the environment by relying on Cortec® Corporation’s EcoLine Heavy Duty Grease wherever an NLGI grade 2 grease is needed in agriculture or industry.
EcoLine Heavy Duty Grease is a premium quality bio-based, biodegradable grease for extreme pressure applications. It is formulated with a vegetable-oil base, lithium-complex-based thickener, and extreme pressure additives for superior lubricity and maximum performance under heavy loads. EcoLine Heavy Duty Grease meets NLGI’s GC-LB specifications for fretting wear protection, oxidation and thermal stability, and resistance to rust and corrosion.
It is good for, but not limited to, the following applications:
- Automotive Chassis
- Wheel bearings
- Fifth Wheels
- Farm Equipment
- Vehicle Fleets
EcoLine Heavy Duty Grease is designed to be biodegradable, non-bioaccumulative, and aquatically nontoxic with no impact on plants. Because of these characteristics, it is recommended for use in environmentally sensitive areas near waterways and also meets requirements for environmentally acceptable lubricants (EALs) under the EPA’s VGP regulation for vessels operating in North American waters. It is therefore an excellent candidate for lubrication of marine azimuth thruster bearings or other shipboard applications.
EcoLine Heavy Duty Grease is ideal for heavy load applications and has a high film strength for superior lubricity. It has excellent oxidation and thermal stability and is compatible with commonly used elastomers.
