Cortec Corporation has developed the EcoLine extreme lubricant penetrant (ELP), a biodegradable soy-based lubricant and penetrant.
It is formulated from natural seed oils and select additives, which according to the company, provides lubricity and performance superior to conventional lubricants.
EcoLine ELP as an all-purpose lubricant for general maintenance needs. It can be applied to multi-metal parts for general lubrication, penetration, and corrosion protection; milling, tapping, and reaming; cutting, grinding, and drilling; loosening rusty bolts; and quieting squeaky hinges and moving parts.
In addition to providing lubrication and protection against rust and corrosion, EcoLine ELP repels water and allows higher equipment operating speeds by cooling moving parts and reducing smoke.
