In order to protect your machinery against wear, rust and corrosion, effective lubricant is essential. We have extensive knowledge of lubricant components used in incidental food contact applications that allow your end formulations to be H1 approved, including:       

  • Gear Lubricants
  • Hydraulic Fluids
  • Chain Oils
  • Bearing Lubricants
  • Greases
  • General Purpose Sprays
  • Anti-Seize & Penetrating Lubricants
  • Mechanical Seal Barrier Fluids
  • Valve & Tap Lubricants

From gear oils to greases we have a variety of components that can be used to design your finished food grade lubricant to meet H1 requirements without compromising performance.
