Press Release Summary:
Formulated with soybeans, EcoLine(TM) Bearing, Chain, and Roller Lubricant features 86% bio-based content and incorporates blend of non-toxic, multi-metal Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitor (VpCI(TM)) chemistry. Rust preventative lubricant will not change metal surface properties. Formulated to resist sling-off, it forms thin, tight, layer on metal surface, completely sealing off metal against moisture or air. It provides protection for up to 24 months in aggressive environments.
Original Press Release:
New Bio-Based Lubricant Replaces Oil While Improving Lubricity and Corrosion Protection
Cortec® Corporation is pleased to introduce EcoLine(TM) Bearing, Chain, & Roller Lubricant. This innovative, bio-based, rust preventative lubricant, formulated with American grown soybeans, offers superior lubricity over most conventional lubes. As a sustainable product, EcoLine Bearing, Chain, & Roller Lube contains 86% less petroleum than traditional lubricants without sacrificing performance characteristics or changing the metal surface properties. Cortec's EcoLine(TM) lubricant offers the unparalleled combination of corrosion protection, high performance lubricity, and a significantly lower environmental footprint.
EcoLine(TM) Bearing, Chain, & Roller Lube is specifically formulated for the rigors of high speed chains, bearings, and rollers to resist sling-off. EcoLine incorporates Cortec's proprietary blend of non-toxic, multi-metal Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitor (VpCI(TM)) chemistry. While typical lubricants rely on petroleum-based film formers to prevent corrosion, Cortec's EcoLine(TM) Lube contains VpCI(TM) molecules that form a thin, tight, layer on the metal, surface completely sealing off the metal against moisture or air, protecting it from corrosion. This formulation does not change the properties of the metal surface.
EcoLine(TM) Bearing, Chain, & Roller Lube is ready-to-use, can be applied by automatic or manual equipment, and provides protection for up to 24 months, even in the most aggressive environments. By resisting sling-off on high speed systems, this innovative lubricant reduces the need for reapplication and keeps the work place area cleaner and safer than using traditional lubricants.
The Advanced Green Chemistry used in the EcoLine(TM) formulation is a result of extensive research & development by Cortec® Laboratories. The 86% bio-based content of EcoLine(TM) Bearing, Chain & Roller Lube is verified by tests conducted at Iowa State University as part of the EPA's Federal Bio-based Product Preferred Procurement Program ("FB4P"), dictated by the Farm Bill of 2002.
