Klüberbio EG 2-100

Environmentally compatible, synthetic high-performance gear oils

Product description

Klüberbio EG 2 oils are ultimately biodegradable gear oils based on synthetic ester oil.

They 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).

Klüberbio EG 2 oils show a high shear stability and form a strong hydrodydamic oil film even when subject to high loads. They have a high scuffing resistance, protecting gear teeth reliably against fretting damage even at high peak loads.

Benefits for your application

  • Comply with the requirements for Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants as defined in Appendix A of the EPA 2013 VGP (Vessel General Permit)

  • Ultimately biodegradable and not toxic to marine organisms reducing environmental impact in the event of leakage

  • Klüberbio EG 2 oils have a high scuffing resistance, protecting gear teeth reliably against fretting damage even at high peak loads

  • Standard NBR and FKM elastomers of the leading propeller shaft seal manufacturers are resistant to and approved for use with Klüberbio EG 2 oils, preventing leakages and impurities
