The new line of Bio-Guard lubricants from JAX do what all lubricants do — protect equipment from friction and wear — but also protect the environment.
The complete line of Bio-Guard products meets the technical requirements established by the Environmental Protection Agency for biodegradability, toxicity and bioaccumulation.
In addition to states that have blanket rules on lubricants and the environment (like California), increasing numbers of industries, such as commercial marine, forestry, agriculture, hydroelectric power, construction and mining, are imposing their own rules.
JAX’s chemists and product development team focused on four key applications – wire rope, gearboxes, bearings and hydraulic systems. The products include:
- JAX Bio-Guard Wire Rope Lube 00. Designed for rust and corrosion protection on steel wire rope and cables.
- JAX Bio-Guard Gear Oils. ISO 150 to 680. Designed for gearboxes used in outdoor environments.
- JAX Bio-Guard Hydraulic Fluids. ISO 32, 46, and 68. Synthetic, readily biodegradable lubricants designed to maximize hydraulic performance.
- JAX Bio-Guard Grease. NLGI 2 grease designed for areas where water resistance and load carrying properties are primary concerns.
