Environmentally compatible lubricants and additives

Through extensive research and development work BECHEM has developed a high-performance range of environmentally compatible lubricants and additives. Besides ecotoxicological harmlessness for water and soil, quick biodegradability and conservation of resources, the bio lubricants made by BECHEM excel in terms of their high lubricating performance.

In addition, BECHEM bio lubricants convince by high efficiency. Evidence for this can be seen in extended machine service life due to less wear and, depending on the application, by extended oil changing intervals.

BECHEM offers their customers the right native, semi or fully synthetic biodegradable lubricants for each individual application.
