Klüberbio EG 2 oils are ultimately biodegradable gear oils based on synthetic ester oil.
They contain ≥90 % of renewable raw materials and achieve 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 2013 VGP (Vessel General Permit).
Klüberbio EG 2-150 also complies 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.
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.
