Lubrizol launches a portfolio of EALs, additives and components

Lubrizol has introduced the EcoAssurant™ portfolio of products made up of environmentally acceptable finished fluids, additive packages and components. As environmental protection becomes a top priority for companies worldwide, environmentally acceptable lubricant (EAL) offerings are gaining popularity.

The term “environmentally acceptable lubricant (EAL)” describes lubricants that have been demonstrated to meet regulatory standards for biodegradability, non-bioaccumulative potential and minimal toxicity to aquatic life compared to conventional lubricants.

The company said the EcoAssurant™ portfolio will play a vital role in elevating the environmentally protective qualities of lubricants in industrial applications worldwide. Lubrizol further added that all the products in the portfolio have been rigorously tested and certified by top regulatory bodies to meet these criteria, helping to enhance oil manufacturers’ eco-responsible reputations without compromising on product performance.

“EcoAssurant represents a single-source solution for manufacturers to expand their customer base and grow their market share in hydraulics, industrial gear oil, metalworking and grease applications on a global scale,” said Craig Paterson, VP of Lubrizol Industrial Specialties. “Our customers are continually looking to us to help unlock possibilities at the molecular level to drive measurable results, and EcoAssurant products do exactly that. Because the entire portfolio is environmentally certified and performance validated, Lubrizol has already worked to ensure its EAL solutions give our customers a competitive edge. Customers can bring their EAL offerings to market quickly and with confidence.”

For finished fluid customers, the EcoAssurant portfolio will eliminate the complexities and costs of formulating and blending. Lubrizol can act as an extension of manufacturers’ product development teams to provide a breadth of solutions and expertise, simplifying their ability to bring EAL solutions to market. For customers of components and additive packages, EcoAssurant solutions assure lubricant formulators of products that are both environmentally compliant and high performing.
