Outstanding performance equivalent to or even better than Green Marine ISO-32 Biodegradable Hydraulic Fluid.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
1. Why can Lube-V Biodegradable Hydraulic Fluid be both biodegradable and fully synthetic?
With its proprietary synthesis technology and process, carefully selected biorenewable/natural raw materials are used to synthesize the base fluid. The final Lube-V Biodegradable Hydraulic Fluid is then formulated by combining this unique base fluid made from biorenewable raw materials with special additives, which not only enhances the final biodegradability, but also boosts the fluids performance against scuffing, corrosion, and rust. That is why Lube-V HBD32 Hydraulic Fluid can be both biodegradable (made directly from biorenewable/natural materials) and fully synthetic (fully synthesized from raw materials).
All Lube-V Biodegradable Hydraulic Fluids meet globally acknowledged biodegradability standards, including ASTM D5864 and OECD 301B, which further proves that Lube-V Biodegradable Hydraulic Fluids are truly biodegradable.
2. What is difference between Lube-V Synthetic Fluids/Oils and other synthetic fluids/oils?
Not all synthetic fluids/oils are equal. This is especially true in USA. Over 10 years ago, ExxonMobil lost a lawsuit against BP Castrol, which allowed BP and so other companies to claim highly refined petroleum fluid (Group III oil) as “synthetic”. (Simply google “Mobil 1 Castrol synthetic lawsuit” for more details.) However, all the fluid professionals like our Lube-V experts know and can prove that the performance of highly refined Group III petroleum fluids/oils cannot compete with true synthetic fluids/oils.
Lube-V HBD32 Biodegradable, Fully Synthetic Hydraulic Fluids are TRUE synthetics and do NOT contain any Group III petroleum fluids. Therefore, combined with our special proprietary additives, the performance of our Lube-V HBD32 Biodegradable, Fully Hydraulic Fluids is excellent, including long oil service life, enhanced energy efficiency, wide range of operating temperature, etc.
3. What are typical applications of Lube-V HBD32 Biodegradable, Fully Synthetic Hydraulic Fluids?
Lube-V HBD32 Biodegradable, Fully Synthetic Hydraulic Fluid can be used in all systems that require ISO VG 32 hydraulic fluids. Typical applications include PowerPole® systems, trim tabs, jack plates, hatch lifters, etc.
Lube-V also has the capability of customizing hydraulic fluids and lubricating oils specifically for your systems to give you the best performance as well as safe operation. If there is any need, please feel free to contact us for more information.
