 UltraLube® Products Receive USDA BioPreferredSM Designation

(Dixon, Ill., April 5, 2011) — Plews & Edelmann announced today that the complete line of UltraLube® professional-grade biobased greases, oils, and spray lubricants & penetrants has received the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s BioPreferredSM designation.
UltraLube’s biobased oil has four times the natural lubricity of petroleum-based oils, allowing UltraLube to instantly penetrate into areas where lubrication is needed most and create a long-lasting bond to metal and plastic surfaces.  
UltraLube greases and oils are ideal for environmentally sensitive areas, since they are VOC-free and non-flammable with extremely high flash points.
As defined by the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002, biobased products are those composed in whole or in significant part of biological products, forestry materials, or renewable domestic agricultural materials.  Products with the BioPreferred designation can help federal agencies and contractors meet green procurement mandates that require purchases of biobased products within identified categories, such as hydraulic fluids and lubricants.
The line of UltraLube products with the BioPreferredSM designation includes 5th Wheel Trailer Grease, Air Tool Oil, Chainsaw Bar & Chain Oil, Disc/Drum Brake Wheel Bearing Grease, Gear Lube, H1 Food Grade Chain & Cable Lube, H1 Food Machinery Grease, ISO Hydraulic Oil, LMX® “Red” Grease, Moly EP Grease, Multi-Purpose Lithium Grease, Multi-Purpose Lubricant & Penetrant, Universal Hydraulic Tractor Fluid, and White Lithium Grease.  
UltraLube products are sold by leading retailers, industrial suppliers and warehouse distributors across the U.S. and Canada.  For more information, visit www.UltraLube.com or call 800-545-1689.
