Lubricants for the food processing and pharmaceutical industry

Food grade lubricants are used for lubrication, power transmission and corrosion protection of machines to manufacture or process foodstuffs, food related commodities, pharmaceutical products, cosmetics, tobacco products and animal feed.

BECHEM products comply with the standards and requirements of modern food grade lubricants. They fulfil the strict regulations of the worldwide operating organisation for product testing and certifications, NSF International. In addition, many of these qualities meet the Islamic requirements and are certified as Halal.

Besides their physiological harmlessness, the food grade BECHEM lubricants have the following properties:

  • Water resistance
  • Oxidation resistance
  • Low wear rate
  • Compatibility with construction materials
  • Good adsorption and adhesion on metal and plastics
  • Steam resistance (when filling wine, beer or soft drinks)
