BioPreferred Voluntary Labeling
Hangsterfer’s concern for environmental conservation initiatives has always been at the forefront of our operations. At the research and development level, we strive to meet the standards of the USDA BioPreferred program. We have voluntarily labeled these products from our PC Series as meeting the rigorous standards of the BioPreferred program: PC10, PC10 No Odor No Dye, PC28, and PC45.
Hangsterfer’s PC series is based on advanced Very High Flash Point (VHF) chemistry and Polar Cutting (PC) Technology. As speeds and feeds are maximized, the temperature in the work piece zone is ever increasing. As a result, the VHF characteristics are well sought after because of their higher flash point. The PC series not only lubricates the tool, but equally lubricates the metal being cut, creating metal flow conditions that were previously unattainable with traditional technologies. Achieving this performance while being a steward to the environment is our ultimate goal.
Biobased products are derived from plants and other renewable agricultural, marine, and forestry materials and provide an alternative to conventional petroleum derived products. Biobased products include diverse categories such as lubricants, cleaning products, inks, fertilizers, and bioplastics. For purposes of the BioPreferred program, biobased products do not include food, animal feed, or fuel.
