BIOLUBE 8 is a blended synthetic oil for spray, drip, or wick systems. Synthetic blended oil lubricant designed for use on hardwoods and softwoods where saw performance is critical. The flashpoint is >400 degrees F, mild odor, no silicone, biodegradable, and low health hazard.
A blend of low viscosity synthetic oil lubricants designed for high-performance applications. Lubie® #8 is designed to lubricate, cool, and retard resin and pitch build-up on the band saw blades, circular saw blades, and another wood tooling. Biolube Lubie #8 provides over three times the lubricating strength of diesel fuel or vegetable oils. Many mills use #8 to lubricate the headrig ways and carriage wheels and rails.
Biolube Lubie® #8 replaces diesel fuel in spray and wick systems on headrigs and line bar resaws. Mills using about 2 quarts per shift of #8 find the cost equal to diesel fuel while eliminating the fire hazard, personal safety and odor problems of diesel.
- Biolube #8 is moderate in cost, odorless, not a skin irritant, is nontoxic, biodegradable, has FDA approval, and is environmentally friendly.
- It does not contain any chemicals listed in SARA Title III, Section 313, or in OSHA 29 CFR 1910.
- Biolube #8 does not contain silicones and will not stain or discolor wood.
Lubie® #8 is most effectively applied through Biolube spray systems which give the ultimate in application and volume adjustment. Wick, drip, and other spray systems have run Biolube #8 effectively.
