This Information Leaflet will be of interest/relevance if you are looking to reduce equipment down-time
and costs of lubricants, or are looking to reduce your Company’s Carbon Footprint, but particularly if
you have vessels sailing in Ecologically Important Seas and US Waters.
With a heritage of over 60 years of successful Swiss Oil Technology and having had a focus on bio
-
degradable and low toxicity lubricants for the past 25 plus years, PANOLIN today, is a global leader
in Environmentally Considerate Lubricants. Using the knowledge gained over the years, our «Doctors» of
lubrication technology have developed a family of lubricants to meet the high performance requirements
of the most demanding of applications. Our ECLs are not «brand new» to the market – they have already
been working in the most arduous of applications and conditions for over 20 years, on land and off
shore – but we have added PANOLIN ATLANTIS and STELLA MARIS to the Marine Portfolio, to meet
the demands being placed on lubricants for vessels.
PANOLIN‘s Focus on the Vessel Market
For many years, PANOLIN ECLs have been applied in hydraulics and component lubrication systems
in excavator, forestry, hydro and wave power, dredging, offshore and sub-sea equipment, not only for
their outstanding resistance to thermal oxidation (anti-ageing), stability at elevated temperatures (higher
than many specialist mineral oil based lubricants), wear protection and long life between refills, but also
for their environmental benefits in areas of great ecological sensitivity. Accreditations from Blue Angel,
Euromargerite (Ecolabel) and Swedish Standard bear testimony to the stringent targets for biodegrada
-
bility, toxicity and bioaccumulation, met by PANOLIN ECLs. Major OEM’s specify the use of PANOLIN
lubricants in their equipment.

PANOLIN’s well-established products have been engineered for the demanding marine environment
and exceed all requirements in performance. These lubricants are readily biodegradable, meet toxicity
requirements, produce no bioaccumulation and
reduce CO

emissions
– by offering the potential
of much better equipment efficiency through lower friction and greatly reducing the need to dispose of
used lubricant (the conservation of resources through longer oil change intervals). With our products and
our knowledge of application requirements, we have ensured that there is no financial penalty using our
lubricants either, due to their long-life capabilities. PANOLIN has a unique technology, using our spe
-
cially developed Saturated Synthetic Esters and specially selected additives to produce our outstanding
performance GREENMARINE products, to address all the issues facing the use of Lubricants today.

There is a
step-change
coming within the Marine Industry
at the end of this year!
In the 2008 US Environmental Protection Agency Vessel General Permit (that regulates discharges from
vessels – particularly oils and greases), it is stated that environmentally preferable lubricants should be
used. However, the new 2013 VGP states that commencing 19
th
December 2013, every ship operator
navigating in, or entering, US waters must use Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants in all applications
with «oil-to-sea interface». The EPA is particularly citing lubricant discharges from Oil-to-Sea Interface
applications/equipment such as: Controllable Pitch Propellers, Thrusters (all types), Stern Tubes, Stabili
-
zers, Rudders and also Wire Rope and Mechanical Equipment subject to immersion or deck wash-off.
Therefore, we are introducing our portfolio of products now, to the marine vessels sector, supported by
our wealth of experience and our Technical and Laboratory Departments, at this time of great change
for the commercial shipping and recreational boating industry.
The Vessel General Permit draft goes on to state that Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants should be:

«Biodegradable»
– measured by changes in dissolved organic carbon, carbon dioxide and
oxygen, over a certain time span

«Minimally-Toxic»
(to algae, daphnia, fish etc.) and …

Not «Bio-accumulative»
(the build-up of chemicals in organisms)
Additionally, there must be
no visible «sheen»
(iridescent rainbow) on the surface of the water.

Benefits of using lubricants manufactured by PANOLIN

• Meet Biodegradability, Toxicity and Bioaccumulation requirements – and leave no sheen
• No Lacquer formation - due to outstanding thermal oxidation stability
• Superior Viscosity - Temperature behaviour – retains higher viscosity and shear stability than
mineral oils at high temperatures
• Low Pour Point – lower viscosity at low temperatures than mineral oils – good cold start fluidity
and lubrication at low temperature
• Reduced Carbon Footprint – produced from renewable resources – CO
2
emission reduction
• Through-life cost saving – longer life than mineral oil – potentially the life of the equipment.
Less downtime for oil changes to be done; saving of resources and reduction of costs for
disposal of used oil

Environmentally Acceptable Lubricant Labelling Programmes
PANOLIN holds Blue Angel, Euromargerite (European Eco Label) and Swedish Standard accreditations.
These Organisations have defined and established methods to measure the properties of a lubricant that
would qualify it as being environmentally acceptable. The labelling programmes can aid the purchasing
decisions of a vessel Owner/Operator/Management Company, by helping to remove uncertainty.
PANOLIN also holds ABS Type Approval for most
Lubricants and also RINA Green Plus, as complying
with the biodegradability requirements in RINA rules.
