Biodegradable grease

SKF Biodegradable Bearing Grease LGGB 2
SKF LGGB 2 is a biodegradable, low toxicity, synthetic ester oil based grease, using a lithium-calcium thickener. Its special formulation makes it most suitable for applications where environmental contamination is a concern.
  • Compliance with current regulations on toxicity and biodegradability
  • Good performance in applications with steel-on-steel spherical plain bearings, ball bearings and roller bearings
  • Good low temperature start-up performance
  • Good corrosion inhibiting properties
  • Suitable for medium to high loads

Typical applications:

  • Agricultural and forestry equipment
  • Construction and earthmoving equipment
  • Mining and conveying equipment
  • Water treatment and irrigation
  • Locks, dams, bridges
  • Linkages, rod ends
