Product Description
What is Drill Rod Grease?
Is a premium quality bio-based/biodegradable for drill rod grease product, formulated with the best optimized Biotechbased™ USA-grown natural vegetable oils and a aluminum complex base thickener. To meet the demanding environmental requirements of the drilling and mining industry. The product features is to improved water washout properties and is made almost entirely of renewable bio-based materials with no heavy metals.
How Drill Rod Grease works?
Bio-based/biodegradable drill rod greases are aluminum-complex lubricants that incorporate environmentally safe additives to increase their mass density. The greases are particularly effective in and around high water flow with a balance of adhesiveness and cohesiveness.
What are the benefits of Drill Rod Grease?
"• Contains advanced extreme pressure additives and graphite for excellent protection • Reduces friction and wear • Formulated to be applied on wet surfaces • Better coefficient of friction than most petroleum-based grease • Improves efficiency and superior lubricity • Higher flash point than major petroleum greases for increased safety • Biodegradable formula reduces damage to the environment • Meets EPA’s Environmental Preferable Purchasing (EPP) criteria • Meets USDA’s proposed Biobased product definition for EO 13101 • Manufactured from renewable USA-grown crop-based oils"
