Bio-Chain & Cable™ Lubricants

Bio-Chain & Cable™ Lubricants are ultimately biodegradable1 vegetable oils formulated with Antiwear/EP, rust/corrosion and oxidation inhibitors, and a tackifier. Bio-Chain & Cable™ Lubricants are designed to provide multi-metal corrosion protection and recommended for heavy chains, sprockets, and cables, which are subject to heavy loading or shock loading. These biobased products provide improved fire resistance over equal viscosity petroleum products and contain no chlorine, zinc, or heavy metals. Performance is enhanced by use of the Stabilized HOBS’s natural vegetable oil composition, which provides an oily boundary film. In addition, this oily film has a natural polarity to metal surfaces and helps clean and then penetrates deep into the inner core of the cable or chain link, preventing corrosion and wear. The super high viscosity index of the Stabilized HOBS adds additional lubrication qualities to this high performance lubricant. Laboratory and field tests have shown that the products provide exceptional equipment protection with excellent cold temperature pumpability.

Applications: Forestry, Mining, Marine, Agriculture, Heavy Industry, Rail and Shipping, Pulp and paper mills, saw mills, plywood mills, hoist cables and chains in marine shipping areas, draglines, drives on straddle lift lumber carriers, drip and automatic chain oilers, motorcycle and ATV chains, etc. Field applications can be applied by spray, brush, dip, drip, or pressure boot.

Bio-Chain & Cable™ Lubricants meet the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) 2013 Vessel General Permit (VGP) guidelines for Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants (EALs), and should be used where LOW TOXICITY, BIODEGRADABILITY and NON-BIOACCUMULATION properties are required. They exceed the acute toxicity (LC-50 / EC-50 >1000 ppm) criteria adopted by the US Fish and Wildlife Service and the US EPA. Bio-Chain & Cable™ Lubricants are ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE lubricants that are formulated from renewable agricultural biobased resources.
