GRIFLUBE® Bio-Syn Biodegradable Hydraulic Fluid

Posted by Hill and Griffith Company on May 14, 2019 9:57:00 AM

GRIFLUBE® Bio-Syn will readily biodegrade as defined by OECD 301 C; and will easily exceed the 60% minimum biodegradability standard, converting CH3-CH2 molecular groups to CO2 within a maximum of 7 days, which exceeds the biodegradability rate of any polyether or polyol ester type fluid.


Hill and Griffith is pleased to submit the following technical information on our Factory Mutual approved fire resistant GRIFLUBE® Bio-Syn hydraulic fluid, as the proactive chemistry of choice for high production foundries, steel mills, casting operations, refineries, and any application which might be predisposed to elevated temperature extremes and have the potential for fire. GRIFLUBE® Bio-Syn was researched and designed as a superior biodegradable fire resistant hydraulic fluid, in comparison to conventional polyol esters, PAG/polyethers, and especially phosphate esters; to offer greater latitude relative to toxicological and environmental compliance, enhanced fire resistance, and maximum lubrication value, for extended wear characteristics in vane and axial piston pumps.
