Anion Environmental Statement
Your Livelihood - Our children's environment - They both count.
Organic based products
Our vegetable oils are obtained from renewable resources and are biodegradable. Thus, they offer specific environmental and economic sustainability benefits over mineral oil-based lubricants. In addition to these benefits, vegetable oils also have certain performance advantages over conventional mineral oil base stocks. These include low volatility, high flash points, super high viscosity index, and excellent lubricity.
ASTM's Highest Rating - Ultimate Biodegradable Pw1
Anion Specialty Chemicals SlickBar ® and SlickSpray ® base carriers are Biodegradable according to ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) D-5864 Aerobic Aquatic Biodegradation of Lubricants, and when noted, are Ultimate Biodegradable Pw1, ASTM's highest rating. The bacterial microorganisms used in biodegradation tests are some of the simplest forms of life, and like all living organisms, are adversely affected by the presence of chemical toxins. The low toxicity of these bio-based products is demonstrated by the microorganism's ability to survive in Anion Specialty Chemicals SlickBar ® and SlickSpray ® base carriers in ASTM biodegradation studies.
Meets Requirements for Government Use
The Farm Security and Investment Act of 2002 (H.R.2646), Executive Orders, and achieves major objectives for the environment, agriculture, and national security.
