  • EcoTain

    Smoothing the way to longer lubricant life

    In our industrialized and fast growing society, demands on lubricants – whether as an end product or in use with machinery and equipment – continue to accumulate. With their not inconsiderable potential for damage to the environment, primarily through water pollution, it makes good sense to take advantage of every possibility to lighten the environmental load, without giving up the edge on performance.

    Superior lubrication and corrosion protection that contributes to protecting machinery and equipment and decreases maintenance costs and downtime is our ongoing goal. Performance is central and Clariant focuses on finding ways to make lubricants more efficient, effective and longer lasting, while fulfilling criteria for sustainability over the long term.

    The products mentioned below have been granted the EcoTain® label based on an approach originally developed in 2012 by Clariant’s Business Unit Industrial & Consumer Specialties. This vetting system was further expanded to a corporate-wide approach within the framework of Clariant’s Portfolio Value Program. All these products will gradually be reviewed according to these revised  EcoTain® guidelines. Please see the link for further information.
