Lanolin Industrial Grade

Lanolin for Industrial Application


Over the centuries, people have discovered that the valuable qualities of wool wax can also be used for a variety of technical applications, such as lubricants or protective preparations for ferrous metals. Indeed, the number of potential uses for lanolin has increased dramatically as a result of its use in important industrial processes and a wide range of technical applications such as an anti-corrosive, lubricant and so on.
Although chemically classified as a wax, lanolin also has all of the physical properties of grease. The biocompatible, biodegradable and non-toxic nature of lanolin make it an attractive lubricant. Due to its high tackiness to metals and superb lubricating qualities, crude wool grease and technical grade lanolin can be used as cost-efficient anti-friction agents for many technical processes.The biocompatible, biodegradable and non-toxic nature of lanolin make it an attractive alternative to mineral oils.
