Used to grease the wear bushings in hydraulic breakers, Epiroc's new bio chisel paste helps prevent bushing wear and prolong working tool life. The formulation is based on special synthetic esters that are easily biodegradable, and have been approved by the European commission for use in environmentally sensitive applications.

This has been developed as inside a hydraulic breaker the ambient working temperature reaches up to 1100°C under extreme load. In these conditions, the standard greases available on the market will liquify and disappear. Without adequate lubrication, bushings suffer accelerated wear, thereby increasing the cost of breaker operation.

Tailor made for hydraulic breakers, Epiroc bio chisel paste gives excellent performance across a wide range of temperatures from –30°C up to +1100°C. The bio chisel paste has high load carrying characteristics with very good separation capacity, helping to reduce breaker operating costs by reducing bushing wear and working tool breakage. High water resistance also makes it suitable for underwater applications, with the product offering a high level of corrosion protection. For the breaker to benefit from the full protection offered by the Epiroc bio chisel paste, lubrication should be performed at regular intervals, and care should be taken not to over lubricate.

Epiroc Bio chisel paste is suitable for automatic lubrication on Epiroc hydraulic breakers with ContiLubeTM II Micro or ContiLubeTM II, or for manual greasing with a grease gun on Epiroc or any other breakers. The product is supplied in cartridges (refillable) or buckets. Cartridge sizes are: 150g, 400g or 500g. Bucket sizes are: 15 kg or 45 kg, with the packaging bearing the EU Certi ed Eco Label (DE/027/243).
