Vickers BIOGREASE EP2
BIOGREASE EP2 is an environmentally acceptable Lithium/Calcium thickened lubricating grease based on fully saturated renewable esters. Wide operating temperature with a lower working temperature of -25°C and an upper temperature of +130°C
It is designed for use in sensitive marine environments and can be used in a variety of marine applications which demand a NLGI 2 grease, for example:
-general greasing points
BIOGREASE EP2 may be applied manually or by suitable mechanical applicators e.g. grease compressor. The grease also has a wide operating temperature with a lower working temperature of -25°C and an upper temperature of +130°C.
BIOGREASE EP2 achieves a biodegradability of greater than 60% in the 28 day OECD 301B test and is considered practically non-toxic to the marine environment.
-Has good resistance to the washing action of rain and seawater.
-Provides effective corrosion protection to metals commonly found in the marineenvironment.
-Contains EP additives to reduce wear and friction and has good EP/load carryingcapabilities.
-Resistant to oxidation (ASTM D-942).
-Compatible with Nitrile and Fluroelastomers (ASTM D-4289).
Contains EP additives to reduce wear and friction and has good EP/load carrying characteristics. Performance in a 4 ball EP weld test >480 kgf (ASTM D2596). Performance in an EP Timken test showed OK load >40 lbs (ASTM D2509).
Provides effective corrosion protection to metals commonly found in the marine environment. Performance in copper corrosion shows good resistance to copper (1b ASTM D4048) and in the dynamic anti-rust (EMCOR) test achieves a 0.1 rating (ASTM D6138).
Shows good resistance to the washing action of rain and sea water giving 1.8% washout at 38 °C and 6.1% washout at 79 °C (ASTM D1264).
Compatible with Nitrile and Fluoroelastomers (ASTM D4289).
