Our Products

ELM's Biotechbased™ products are premium quality Biobased lubricants formulated from renewable, biodegradable USA-grown vegetable oils. Our quality lubricants and greases are designed to replace and mix readily in conventional petroleum products. They help you and your customers use safer and more environmentally friendly lubricants while complying with environmental purchasing programs.



In the demanding world of lubricants, attention to quality must be constantly maintained and expanded. That's why ELM pays such close attention to all aspects of processing and quality assurance.

ELM's commitment to quality starts upon receipt of base oils and additives. Unlike most lubricant facilities ELM utilizes the specialized instrumentation unique to vegetable oils such as the oxidation stability instrument required to test the unique oxidative properties of our products.

Samples are taken routinely from base stock and additive supplies, from blending and packaging operations, and storage vessels. The laboratory staff maintains strict control standards by using the latest instruments.
