For some years now there has been an increasing awareness of the impact of large amounts of lubricants entering the environment. Several countries have already restricted the use of mineral oil based products in environmentally sensitive areas, and these countries insist on the use of environmentally acceptable lubricants.
We are a world leader in the development of synthetic base oils for use in environments where the possibility of leakage or spillage is a major concern.
We have developed an industry leading range of ester base oils branded under the well known Priolube™ trade name. Many of our products designed for environmentally sensitive areas are made using renewable and sustainable raw materials; all are ultimately biodegradable and have low toxicity towards aquatic organisms. Our products are also European Eco label certified.
Please note that the EU has updated Ecolabel for lubricants with COMMISSION DECISION (EU) 2018/1702 of 8 November 2018. During 2019 there is a transitional period of one year to allow lubricant producers whose products have been awarded the EU Ecolabel for Lubricants based on the criteria set out in Decision 2011/381/EU time to adapt their products to comply with the newly revised criteria and requirements.
Croda’s Priolube™ ester base oils will continue to be available and acceptable for use in the formulation of EU Ecolabel Compliant Lubricants according to (EU) 2018/1702 and 2011/381/EU. We are working to include our range of Priolube products on the upcoming 2019 LuSC list and this website will be updated when this work is complete. Please contact us for more information.
We have a broad range of oxidatively stable and biodegradable esters suitable for HEES environmentally acceptable hydraulic fluids, in ISO grades 22 to 1000. Environmentally acceptable hydraulic fluid applications include:
