Responsible products free of chlorine, boron, formaldehyde, heavy metals and secondary amines.
Castrol’s Performance Bio family is a range of biodegradable oils based on natural and synthetic esters for applications including gears, chains, hydraulics and slideways. They are designed to complement the Metalworking Performance Bio range.
Specially formulated to reduce fluid usage and waste management costs, they can help you meet important compliance, legislative, and financial goals.
At Castrol, we are passionate about investing our time, energy, resources, and expertise in research and development to do the right thing for our customers, our people and the environment. That was the driving force behind this innovation, and we are proud to make our responsible products available to you.
Castrol’s Performance Bio range is here to help you meet both financial and compliance goals
Biodegradable synthetic gear oils.
Castrol Performance BIO GE™ ESS synthetic gear oils are formulated from a synthetic ester and are readily biodegradable (more than 80%) according to CEC L-33-A-93. Anti-wear and corrosion protection additives improve the natural characteristics of the synthetic base oil. Castrol Performance BIO GE ESS gear oils are available in the viscosity grades ISO VG 220 to ISO VG 320.
Biodegradable ester based hydraulic oil.
The Castrol Performance™ Bio HE ESU hydraulic oil range (previously called Carelube™ HES) are based on carefully selected synthetic esters, which are highly biodegradable and recommended for use in situations where leakage or spillage may present a risk of harm to the environment.
Biodegradable ester based slideway lubricant.
Castrol Performance™ Bio SW Range ( previously called Carelube™ SL Range ) is available in ISO 68 and 220 viscosity grades. It is specifically designed for use in machine tool slideway systems.
Unlike petroleum-based lubricants, Castrol’s bio-based Performance Biolubes products deliver superior lubricity without the need for additives like chlorine and sulfur. Their added lubricity lowers friction, which reduces cutting forces and generates less heat in the metal cutting process. By reducing wear on cutting tools and grinding wheels, Performance Biolubes can extend tool life.
Castrol Responsible and Castrol Performance Biolubes products make up our Responsible line. They are an ideal choice for businesses looking to improve workplace environment, benefit the wider community, and combine performance improvements with cost savings.
