Our chain lubrication is made from crude glycerol and, after processing, is a Biodegradable Product. It has achieved the OECD 301F Standard for Readily Biodegradable Oil, which is recognised worldwide and is actually water soluble.
Chain oil/lube is classed in the Total Loss Lubricants sector so it's imperative that a Biodegradable oil/lubricant is used to protect our land and streams from pollution. Our oil/lubricant is a totally green product due to it being made from a waste stream which is renewable and sustainable. Most other biodegradable oils are made from vegetable oil which displaces land for food crops to produce the oil and are therefore not totally green.
Although there are many uses for our chain oil, it's main use is in forestry (harvesters/chainsaws) and agriculture (round balers).
All concrete products made in a mould use a mould release oil/lubricant to ensure that the product releases from the mould when set and also gives a smooth finish on the concrete product. This oil is not recoverable and is classed in Total Loss Lubricant category, therefore it's important to use a biodegradable oil/lubricant.
Our mould release oil is biodegradable and made from recycled/processed used cooking oil, which is a renewable sustainable waste resource.
I would like to acknowledge the following for their assistance with product development on this long road to completion.
