Lube-Tech PUBLISHED BY LUBE: Summary


Biobased and biodegradable lubricants offer great potential to be offered alongside conventional lubricants.


Mineral oil-based lubricants have had years of standardisation and offer consistency and quality with known performance.


Vegetable oils on the other hand have significant amount of variability and range both in stability and price. Ultimately, the end use of the product will dictate which base vegetable oil to use.


The choices range from commodity vegetable oils, genetically enhanced or transgenic varieties that offer more stability, and a variety of chemically modified or esterified base oils that offer consistency and higher performance but could cost 2x to 3x more than vegetable oils or conventional mineral oils. Vegetable oils offer the best performance and price for select lost-in-use applications.

BIOBASED/VGP BIODEGRADABLE


No.127 page 6


Biobased lubricants - other factors There are other factors that should be considered when formulating biobased lubricants and greases. Details are beyond the scope of this paper, but compatibility with packaging polymers, with elastomeric seals and hoses, with some metals, and with other mineral oil-based lubricants should be understood when a product is being formulated.


Some antioxidants cause extreme colour changes in the products. Some food colouring or conventional dyes used for colouring greases could show incompatibility with vegetable oil-based lubricants and greases.
