PETER GREVEN – Your partner for ester lubricants

The issue of sustainability, also in the lubricant industry is becoming increasingly important and the demand for bio-lubricants is increasing. Biodegradable lubricants are biodegradable and are made primarily from renewable raw materials.

As we have always produced our additives based on renewable resources and therefore have many years of experience with these raw materials and related production technologies, the future lubricant industry constitutes a main focal point for us.

With the product line LIGALUB® - Sustainable Ester Lubes, we have developed a product which is specifically tailored to the lubricant industry. It includes mono, glycerol, polyol and complex esters which are used as base oils for a variety of lubricants.

As some some products of our LIGALUB® product range have special listings or certifications, they can be used for lubricants with special requirements. LuSC list as well as RSPO and NSF certification can be considered as an example. Further information can be found on the respective subpages.
 

In addition to our range of base oils our product portfolio contains high quality metallic soaps, alkaline soaps and fatty acids that are used as additives for different lubricant applications.

Our base oils and additives are used in the lubricant industry, especially in the following applications:

  • Hydraulic oils
  • Gear oils
  • Chain oils
  • Greases
  • Metal working fluids
