Environmentally compatible, synthetic stern tube oils
Klüberbio RM 2 oils are ultimately biodegradable oils for stern tubes based on synthetic ester oil showing good ageing and oxidation stability.
Klüberbio RM 2 oils show a high shear stability and form a strong hydrodynamic oil film even when subject to high loads.
As the lubricants are biodegradable and contain carefully selected raw materials, oil loss or leakage are less dangerous to the environment. Klüberbio RM 2 oils contain > 90 % of renewable raw materials and bear the European Ecolabel.
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.
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
FKM elastomers available from leading propeller shaft seal manufacturers are compatible and approved for use with Klüberbio RM 2 oils to prevent leakage and contamination
