Formulated from renewable, biodegradable vegetable oils, the LubriMatic Green™ products from Plews/Edelmann are designed to replace and mix readily in conventional petroleum products for a more environmentally friendly lubricant. With its high viscosity index, bio-based oil is less likely to "thin down" at high temperatures, which leads to lower operating temperatures and a higher degree of lube safety, especially in high-speed applications.
Hutch 101 Green is a non-soap, water-based lubricant with all the benefits of oil-based formulations, but none of the downsides. The company says this environmentally safe product designed to meet the needs of the ceramics industry also costs less than oil-based lubes.
