Lubricating Performance: Using Soybean Oil for Performance and Sustainability

Brought to you by the United Soybean Board


Overview

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
