The environment is becoming a more and more important focus area for companies. The use of non-toxic and Bio Lubricants and greases is a part of this focus where companies and governments take their responsibility, and change to environmentally more acceptable alternatives. This line of products includes biodegradable hydraulics, gear and many other lubricants as well as a range of greases and concrete mold release agents. High-performance, long life, low toxicity and biodegradability are key factors within this product group.
Biodegradable greases find their applications in many applications where it is likely that grease will end up in the environment. Examples are railway lubrication, forestry equipment, agricultural machines, harbour cranes etc.
Biodegradable Hydraulic Fluids
There are many applications where the risk of spillage of hydraulic oils in the environment is high. The development of a range of biodegradable hydraulic oils using different type of base oils and additive technologies has resulted in Matrix being able to supply suitable biodegradable hydraulic oil for most applications. Besides the use of biodegradable esters in the Ecomax SE line Matrix was able to develop a product (Hydromax HT ECO) with the highest sustainability taking eco toxicity, biodegradability and lifetime into consideration.
Besides hydraulic oils, greases and concrete mould release oils Matrix has a number of biodegradable products available including gear oils, general purpose lubricants, metal working fluids.
