ENVIROLIN and PANOLIN® are in compliance with sustainable development principles: marketed products are non toxic, biodegradable and non water soluble (VDMA 24 568 and ISO 15380 directives). These are the ideal lubricants for public works and construction sites, the marine, transportation, agriculture, forestry, power plants, mining exploration and oil rigs because they help to safeguard sensitive environments.

A material is said to be biodegradable if it is decomposed by micro-organisms like bacteria, fungi and algae.

In compliance with directives, OCDE 301B __ ASTM D-6046-98a (PW1, TW1, TS1) __ ISO 9439 __ OPPTS 85.3110 , PANOLIN® chose the ultimate biodegradability – a complete degradation of an organic compound by micro-organisms leading to the production of CO2, water, mineral salts and other natural components. The results are expressed in % of elimination within a maturity period of 28 days.
