BIOGREASE EP is an environmentally acceptable lubricant (EAL), based on fully saturated synthetic esters and meets the detailed ecological definitions and requirements laid down in Vessel General Permit (VGP). BIOGREASE EP offers improved operation and lower environmental risk leading to overall cost savings.
BIOGREASE EP2 and BIOGREASE EP0 are Lithium/Calcium thickened greases. They provide excellent corrosion protection and resistance to wash off from rain and seawater and can be used on deck equipment, wire ropes and as rudder stock.
Vickers Oils also have a range of mineral based greases which deliver a high standard of lubrication and corrosion protection. NEOX DT and NEOX DTX have the consistency of soft grease. Both products are recommended for use on wire ropes and rigging, container lashings, hatch cover bearings and runners, deck winches and slipway rails. Unlike many conventional types of grease these products do not harden excessively or crack when subjected to cold, wet conditions.
Vickers Oils also has a mineral based wire rope dressing which has been formulated to be fluid enough to be applied by brush, spray or mechanical means. The key benefit is that it has de-watering characteristics such that water present on the surface of the metal is displaced leaving a thin continuous film of lubricants, which has excellent anti-corrosion properties.
