Cortec® Releases Biobased EcoLine® ELP for General-Purpose Lubrication

General purpose lubrication around the plant, shop, or home is easy and more environmentally friendly with Cortec’s EcoLine® ELP. EcoLine® ELP (Extreme Lubricant Penetrant) is a high performance biodegradable soy-based lubricant and penetrant. It is formulated from natural seed oils and select additives that offer lubricity and performance superior to conventional lubricants. Its excellent performance, biobased nature, and low environmental impact make EcoLine® ELP a highly desirable option for industrial and household applications.

EcoLine® 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, EcoLine® ELP serves as an excellent all-purpose lubricant for general maintenance needs. It can be applied to multi-metal parts for:

  • General lubrication, penetration, and    corrosion protection
  • Milling, tapping, and reaming
  • Cutting, grinding, and drilling
  • Loosening rusty bolts
  • Quieting squeaky hinges and moving  parts
  • And practically any basic lubrication need you can think of!

Having a can of EcoLine® ELP on hand reduces the need to stock multiple lubricants for everyday MRO (Maintenance, Repair, and Operations) 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 (for more information, please visit: ).

EcoLine® ELP comes in 11 oz. (312 g) aerosols for convenient use around your facility. It is also available in pails, totes, and bulk for heavy use. With EcoLine® ELP, extreme lubrication protection with sustainable products is not a dream but a reality.
