These guidelines regard contamination control as a major issue, so risk management demands that lubricants coming into contact with the product are hygienically safe; NSF H1 lubricants should be used exclusively to make manufacturing processes more reliable. This prevents the risk of lubricants being mixed up, and pharmaceutical product contamination with non-NSF H1 lubricants becomes impossible.
Full confidence in NSF H1-registered lubricants’ ability to manage chemical, physical, and biological risk comes from knowing that not only the lubricants but also their production sites are certified by NSF according to the new international ISO 21469 standards.
While facilitating GMP compliance, specialty lubricants can also increase productivity, reliability, and economic operation of machines used in the manufacturing of pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and personal care products.
Further benefits include high resistance to ageing and oxidation, optimised wear protection,
good corrosion protection, good water resistance for protection against wash-out during sterilisation, cleaning and additional anticorrosive effects.
