Klüberbio LR 9 oils are completely biodegradable, eco-friendly hydraulic fluids based on synthetic ester oils. These oils contain >90 % of renewable raw materials and comply with the European Ecolabel.
The EU Ecolabel is a label of environmental excellence that is awarded to products and services meeting high environmental standards throughout their life-cycle: from raw material extraction, to production, distribution and disposal.
Attaining EU Ecolabel certification provides ship owners and/or operators with independent assurance that the product achieves the U.S. EPA's requirements for classification as an Environmentally Acceptable Lubricant (EAL). Therefore, these high-performance lubricants meet the biodegradability, minimally toxic, and non-bioaccumulating standards set in Appendix A of the U.S. EPA's VGP (Vessel General Permit).
In addition, Klüberbio LR 9 oils meet or even exceed the minimum requirements stipulated in ISO 15380.
