Biosynthetic Technologies Receives Provisional AEGIR-Marine Approval For Its Biobased Biosynthetic® VGP Compliant ISO 68 Hydraulic Fluid

INDIANAPOLIS, Feb. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Biosynthetic® Technologies today announced it has been awarded the provisional AEGIR-Marine approval for its Biosynthetic® ISO 68 hydraulic fluid specifically manufactured for marine applications.

Biosynthetic Technologies has developed a novel class of high-performance, bio-based base oils for the use in finished lubricants.  These base oils utilize the patented estolide technology and are biobased, biodegradable, non-bioaccumulative, and non-toxic. To showcase the efficacy and superior performance characteristics of these base oils, Biosynthetic Technologies has developed an ISO 68 marine hydraulic fluid that is sustainable, biobased, and VGP compliant. The patented estolide technology enhances the lubricity, demulsibility, film strength, hydrolytic stability, and oxidative stability of the lubricant and enhances seal compatibility as well; the perfect combination for demanding marine lubricant applications. 

“We are proud to report that our biobased, VGP compliant marine hydraulic fluid has received provisional AEGIR-Marine approval, indicating that AEGIR’s Prime seals and Biosynthetic Technologies’ lubricants are compatible,” said Dr. Matt Kriech, COO of Biosynthetic Technologies.

AEGIR-Marine’s static compatibility tests found compatibility between the Prime seals Biosynthetic ISO 68 Hydraulic Fluid lubricant. “Meeting our focus of innovations for a sustainable future , receiving AEGIR-Marine approval for our VGP compliant marine lubricants is key to the successful integration of our base oils into the development and manufacture of  Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants (EAL) formulations worldwide.” Said Mr. Mark Miller, CEO of Biosynthetic Technologies. “Our sustainable base oils deliver superior performance, especially in the areas of lubricity, oxidative stability and hydrolytic stability as well as wear performance, providing the market with a high performance alternative to petroleum derived lubricants.”
