EG 2 gear oils

Environmentally-friendly high-performance biodegradable gear oils

Klüber Lubrication’s EG 2 series non-toxic gear oils are:

  • Compliant with requirements for Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants as defined in Appendix A of the 2013 Vessel General Permit
  • Readily biodegradable lubricants with a biodegradability of ≥ 60% acc. to OECD 301 F after 28 days
  • Made using >90% of renewable raw materials and have the European ECO label
  • Suitable for the lubrication of ships’ gearboxes, particularly for thrusters and rudder propeller gears
  • Compliant with DIN 51517-3, CLP requirements
  • Highly scuff-resistant: protecting gear teeth reliably against fretting damage even at high-peak loads
  • Able to offer high micropitting-resistance acc. to FVA 54 GFT ≥10, which offers sufficient protection to gears that are subject to high loads and would normally be susceptible to this type of damage

Most standard NBR and FKM elastomers of the leading propeller and steering shaft seal manufacturers are resistant to and approved for use with Klüberbio EG 2 oils, preventing leakages and impurities.
