Klϋber Lubrication has introduced Klüberbio AG 39-602, an environmentally acceptable adhesive lubricant for open pinion gears and steel cables. Based on ester oil and selected additives, the grease complies with the requirements for environmentally acceptable lubricants (EALs) as defined in Appendix A of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s 2013 Vessel General Permit (VGP).

Klüberbio AG 39-602 contains more than 60 percent of renewable raw materials, resulting in reduced environmental impact in the event of discharge into water. With its good adhesion to surfaces and water resistance, Klüberbio AG 39-602 helps extend relubrication intervals. The product’s anticorrosion and antiwear additives also ensure longer component life and reduced wear. Klüberbio AG 39-602 meets the standards regarding biodegradability, minimal toxicity and bioaccumulation established by the 2013 VGP.

“This specialty grease is designed for applications that require adhesion, corrosion protection, resistance to water washout, and protection from wear,” said Dirk Fabry, marine market manager at Klüber Lubrication. “Protection of wire ropes and open pinion gears on winches is the primary target application, but plain bearing applications, such as rudder posts and lifeboat davits, are also good uses for Klüberbio AG 39-602. Its high base oil viscosity of 600 cSt provides excellent film thickness leading to reduced wear of components.”

Klüberbio AG 39-602 can be applied continuously through transfer lubrication by pinion or brush. Compressed-air lubrication equipment can be used for the lubrication of steel cables. The required lubricant quantity depends on the operating conditions in each individual case.
