EcoLine ELP Biobased, General-Purpose Lubricant

Oct. 5, 2018
Cortec's biobased lubrication has high flash and fire points so it can be used as a general lubricant for almost any need.

General-purpose lubrication around the plant, shop or home is easy and more environmentally friendly with EcoLine ELP. EcoLine ELP (Extreme Lubricant Penetrant) is a high-performance biodegradable soy-based lubricant and penetrant. It's formulated from natural seed oils and select additives that offer lubricity and performance superior to conventional lubricants.


ELP can be used on all types of metal for multiple purposes around the shop, plant or home. Whether lubricating moving parts, loosening rusty bolts or cooling/lubricating basic metal cutting operations, it serves as an all-purpose lubricant for general maintenance needs.


In addition to providing lubrication and protection against rust and corrosion, EcoLine ELP repels water and allows higher equipment operating speeds by cooling moving parts and reducing smoke. EcoLine ELP has high flash and fire points, is not toxic to plants, and is chlorine-free. It contains 95% USDA-certified biobased content and is a qualified product under the mandatory federal purchasing initiative of the USDA BioPreferred Program.
