BIOGREASE EP0 and its components have been evaluated by independent laboratories.  Using these test results, Vickers Oils has determined that it meets the VGP definition of an Environmentally Acceptable Lubricant.

BIOGREASE EP0 is a Lithium/Calcium thickened lubricating grease based on fully saturated synthetic esters. It offers improved operation and lower environmental risk leading to overall cost savings.

BIOGREASE EP0 is designed for use in sensitive marine environments and can be used in a variety of marine applications which demand a semi-fluid NLGI 0 grease, primarily for rudder stocks (centralized lubrication systems) and propeller hubs and caps.

BIOGREASE EP0 may be applied manually or via a centralized lubrication system using suitable pumps. The grease also has a wide operating temperature with a lower working temperature of -25°C and an upper temperature of +140°C.

BIOGREASE EP0 has a biodegradability of greater than 60% in the 28 days OECD 301B test and is proven to be non-toxic in the marine environment based on the following results:

LC50 exceeds 1000 mg/l EC50 exceeds 1000 mg/l EC50 exceeds 1000 mg/l

BIOGREASE EP0 meets the detailed ecological definitions and requirements laid down in the 2013 Vessel General Permit (VGP) published by the US EPA in March 2013.
