RSC Bio Solutions Launches High Performance Biodegradable Grease
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (May 16, 2017) – RSC Bio Solutions, a global leader in environmentally acceptable lubricants (EALs) and cleaners, announced today the launch of RSC EnviroLogic® Grease 2 WREP, a water resistant, biodegradable grease. This Lithium Complex, extreme pressure grease is an EAL designed with polyalphaolefin (PAO) and hydrocarbon related type base fluids.
RSC EnviroLogic® Grease 2 WREP is an EAL compliant with the 2013 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Vessel General Permit (VGP). It was formulated to meet or exceed the performance of conventional and biodegradable greases in applications where water resistance is integral to the performance of the equipment.
“The new RSC EnviroLogic® Grease 2 WREP has significant advantages offering exceptional water spray off performance, extreme pressure and anti-wear performance, and broad operating temperature range,” said Dr. Bernard C. Roell, Jr., vice president of research and development at RSC Bio Solutions. “While applications outside of articulated tug and barge equipment are abundant, this grease aligns well with Intercon’s specifications and offers more advantages than any other grease we have encountered on the market.”
RSC EnviroLogic® Grease 2 WREP is specially designed for high performance in a variety of marine and industrial equipment applications where exposure of the lubricant to water and environmental factors is a cause for concern, such as articulated tug boats, barges, dredging, jack-up lifting systems, navigation locks and dams, deck equipment, rudders, and mobile drilling rigs. It is biodegradable and minimally toxic to aquatic life and animals.
RSC EnviroLogic® Grease 2 WREP offers multiple benefits, including:
- Outstanding water spray off performance
- Extreme pressure and anti-wear performance
- Broad operating temperature range (400°F to below freezing)
- Resistance to water wash out
- Ferrous and yellow metals corrosion protection
- Oxidative stability
- Good pumpability
- Good shear stability
- Sealing properties to keep out water and debris
RSC EnviroLogic® sustainable lubricants are suitable, proven and approved for a variety of applications, and meet a wide range of ISO/NLGI grades and industry performance specifications. These solutions maintain technical feasibility evident in the many original equipment manufacturer (OEM) approvals, including: Aegir, Blohm & Voss, Eaton/Vickers, Linde, Rolls Royce, Rexroth, Komatsu and Wärtsilä.
