NovaSpec renewable, biodegradable base oils have proven successful in creating grease formulations that deliver excellent performance across many applications. They are compatible with a wide variety of high-quality thickeners, including lithium, zinc and calcium sulfonate, giving formulators a sustainable foundation for high-value products.

Improved Performance

NovaSpec-based grease offers a smart choice for protecting bearings and machinery components against wear and corrosion. Suitable for high- and low-temperature environments, NovaSpec formulations reduce friction for smooth performance under the toughest conditions and can match PAO-grease performance in all critical areas. Oxidation resistance and hydrolytic stability provide long lubricant life and excellent equipment protection.

Environmental Benefits

NovaSpec-based greases are a perfect choice for environmentally sensitive areas. They can be used in Ecolabel applications, food-grade use, and marine settings that require compliance with U.S. EPA VGP regulations.

Formulation Advantages

Grease manufacturing is a difficult and technical process. NovaSpec Base Oils are the only renewable and biodegradable option that will compound and manufacture the same as petroleum base oils. This is a significant advantage over esters, allowing easy integration into any product line.
