Lubricating Performance: Using Soybean Oil for Performance and Sustainability
Brought to you by the United Soybean Board
Soybean oil provides a cost-effective base material for a wide range of lubrication fluids while having an environmentally favorable footprint. There are good performance reasons for using soybean oil in lubricant formulations. It has well-established uses and supply chain infrastructure. New developments in chemical modifications and soybean agriculture are leading to more effective soy-based lubricant.
Key Learning Objective
Good lubrication Performance
• Enhanced lubricity
• High viscosity index
• Low evaporation loss
• Low flammability
A sustainable and renewable option for a broad range of lubrication applications requiring low toxicity and readily biodegradability.
Established uses as lubrication fluids in hydraulic cylinders, metalworking machines and moving surfaces where the lubricant is lost directly into the environment.
Improved thermal stability with the recent development of high oleic soybeans.
Renewable by nature, soybean production is responsible for significant greenhouse gas reduction
