This soft, semifluid coating grease is a certified Environmentally Acceptable Lubricant, recommended for use in applications on or near waterways. It is perfect for oil-to-sea interfaces as well as deck applications. It meets the specifications required by the EPA’s Vessel General Permit; it is readily biodegradable, exhibits minimal aquatic toxicity and will not accumulate in the cells of fish and other aquatic life forms.
Earthwise EAL Wire Rope Grease is an NLGI 0 grease designed to coat wire rope as well as moving chain and cable parts to ensure long life and smooth, quiet operation. Its semi-tacky, water-resistant characteristics enable it to adhere to the application, seal out damaging moisture, protect against rust formation, and shield against acid attack. The formulation includes a robust additive package, including LE’s proprietary Almasol® and Quinplex® additives, to further help the grease protect against wear, corrosion, impact, rust and oxidation.
LE’s R&D team worked hard to come up with a formulation that would fit the bill for an environmentally acceptable lubricant as well as reliably perform in the application. “After extensive field tests, we landed on a product that will help our customers worldwide protect their assets while meeting today’s environmental regulations,” said John Sander, vice president of technology. “Next up, we will broaden the EarthwiseTM line to include additional types of lubricants. We look forward to continuing to help our customers with their lubrication reliability challenges.”.
