Royal Purple, based in Porter, Texas, U.S.A., announced the launch of its all-new BioMax™ line of environmentally acceptable lubricants (EAL), engineered to deliver unparalleled performance and protection, even in the most corrosive marine environments.
Royal Purple’s BioMax Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants meet all environmental standards mandated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and are Vessel General Permit (VGP) compliant for use in oil-to-sea interfaces in vessels measuring 79 feet or greater in length.
BioMax lubricants are formulated with proprietary advanced additive technology, Synerlec®. Synerlec, the company, said creates an ionic bond that adheres to metal parts and forms a tough, slippery, synthetic film on all metal surfaces, significantly improving lubrication and maintaining longer lasting results due to the oil film’s thickness and strength. In addition, Synerlec enables moisture to be displaced, protecting all metals from rust, corrosion and the detrimental effects of heat, which often leads to oxidation.
Royal Purple’s BioMax EAL line includes products suitable for use with marine hydraulic systems and gears, as well as stabilizers, rudders, thrusters, controllable pitch propellers and azipods.
“As an environmentally aware company we are proud to manufacture a product that not only protects our oceans and marine life, but stays true to the Royal Purple standard of offering the highest level of performance and protection in the industry,” said Michael Crosby, vice president of industrial sales.
