Cortec has released a bio-based ELP for general purpose lubrication. The EcoLine ELP (Extreme Lubricant Penetrant) is a high performance biodegradable soy-based lubricant and penetrant.

Cortec introduces biodegradable general purpose lubricant1EcoLine ELP is formulated from natural seed oils and select additives that offer lubrication and performance superior to conventional lubricants, according to the company. Its excellent performance, bio-based nature, and low environmental impact make EcoLine ELP ideal for both industrial and household applications.

The product can be used on all types of metal for lubricating moving parts, loosening rusty bolts, or cooling/lubricating basic metal cutting operations. An all-purpose lubricant, EcoLine ELP can be used for general maintenance needs for lubrication, penetration and corrosion protection; milling, tapping, and reaming; cutting, grinding, and drilling; loosening rusty bolts; as well as quieting squeaky hinges and moving parts.

Cortec introduces biodegradable general purpose lubricant2In 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. EcoLine ELP has high flash and fire points, is not toxic to plants, and is chlorine-free. It contains 95% USDA certified bio-based content and is a qualified product under the mandatory federal purchasing initiative of the USDA BioPreferred Program.

Because it is a general purpose lubricant, having a can of EcoLine ELP on hand reduces the need to stock multiple lubricants for everyday maintenance, repair, and operations needs. EcoLine ELP comes in 11 oz. (312 g) aerosols and is also available in pails, totes, and bulk for heavy use.
