Commonwealth Oil Corp. has released a line of BioComm readily biodegradable synthetic functional fluids. These synthetic ester functional fluids consist of concrete forming fluids, heavy-duty gear and hydraulic oils, and ram type EDM fluids.
The products biodegrade to their natural state within 28 days when exposed to sunlight, water, and microbial activity. The fluids primarily are intended for severe, extreme-temperature applications, such as excessive heat or arctic temperature conditions as low as -58 degrees F, or where sensitive environmental issues must be considered, such as marine, rail, and oil platform applications.
