Cortec recently introduced a new bio-based lubricant in an air-powered spray can to dispense lubricating fluid without the use of flammable or ozone-depleting propellants.

The EcoAir Biobased CLP can be utilized for a wide range of purposes, such as loosening rusted parts and protecting equipment components from wear and corrosion. It can be sprayed in any direction, even upside down. Once the product is fully dispensed, the empty can is recyclable.

Unlike most clean, lubricate and protect (CLP) products, which are made of mineral oils and other petroleum-based solvents, the EcoAir Biobased CLP features a canola oil base and contains 89 percent bio-based content. It is formulated to provide penetrating, lubricating and rust-preventing action for industrial, shop and home use.

The spray lubricant leaves behind a layer that resists corrosion for up to 24 months. If needed, the layer can also be easily removed with common detergents.

The product can be sprayed on carbon steel, galvanized steel, stainless steel, aluminum and aluminum alloys. Typical applications include in-plant machining, bar and chain oiling, flange lubrication, lock and hinge maintenance, and mold release.

The EcoAir Biobased CLP is freeze-stable and comes packaged in 10-ounce (284-gram) recyclable steel cans.
