RS Clare has developed a unique grease thickener technology to create unparalleled levels of performance and stability. The inherent environmental properties of our new BioMarine range allow the greases to exceed the EPA’s requirements meaning they are VGP Compliant. The range has also been granted the EU Ecolabel, “The Official EU Mark for Greener Products”, guaranteeing the lowest level of impact on the environment whilst maintaining high technical performance.
Delivering Enhanced Asset Protection in Marine Applications
Our range of Marine Greases are designed to protect equipment used in marine applications that are subject to challenging operating conditions where there is a greater risk of corrosion from salt water and wear through varying temperatures.

THE VESSEL GENERAL PERMIT REGULATION (VGP)
The Vessel General Permit Regulation 2013 mandates the use of an Environmentally Acceptable Lubricant (EAL) for many applications, primarily where discharge to or contact with seawater is likely. The EPA defines an EAL as not being sheen forming; containing at least 75% readily biodegradable components, with the remainder being non bio-accumulative; and meeting aquatic toxicity EC50 levels of at least 1000mg/l, tested against algae, arthropods and fish.
The BioMarine grease formulations have been assessed according to test methods OECD301B, OECD201, OECD202 and OECD203, and we therefore certify that they are EALs.
