All Performance No Compromise TM2

Designed for harsh environments but environmentally friendly, VBASE™ lubes and base oils are a new class of saturated and unsaturated synthetic esters exhibiting superior high temperature and hydrolytic stability with exceptional cold weather performance.

VBASE expands the availability of saturated simple synthetic esters to ISO Viscosity Grades from 46 to 100 with excellent lubricity and all-season performance.

New Class of High-Performance Synthetic Esters

  • Increased System Efficiency

    High VI and high shear stability enable reduced flow losses and viscous drag

  • Enhanced Fluid Lifetime and Reliability

    Excellent thermo-oxidative stability, varnish resistance, and hydrolytic stability

  • Superior Compatibility

    Broad compatibility with fluids, coatings, and seals

  • Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants

    Bio-based, Biodegradable, Non-Toxic

  • Stable Production and Supply Capability

    Validated raw material supplies and production capabilities for bulk supply

Sustainability

VBASE strives to produce oils that deliver the highest performance and greatest energy savings while minimizing environmental impact. While VBASE products are environmentally acceptable lubricants (EALs), sustainability is about more than just being biodegradable, biobased, and nontoxic. Sustainable oils also reduce fuel consumption and emissions by increasing overall equipment efficiency. 

As VBASE grows, it is our goal to develop a supply chain that minimizes 
the environmental impact of transportation and distribution while maximizing positive effects on local economies by manufacturing in region and sourcing local natural feedstocks.

Base Oil Products

Well-designed lubricants can provide superior lubricating performance without compromising the need for bioderived, biodegradable, and non-toxic products. Rather than competing with formulated lubricant providers, VBASE is focused on providing base oils to formulators to enable the rapid development of sustainable solutions.

This new class of high-performance synthetic esters surpasses the performance of both mineral base oils and traditional synthetic ester base oils. As a base oil, VBASE™ is available across a range of viscosity grades (ISO 46-100) and provides miscibility with all major base oils, easy formulation, and excellent solvency.

Fully Formulated Lubricants

Although base oils are our focus, we realize base oil performance must be demonstrated in a fully formulated lubricant.

To that end,
the VBASE™ team designed Hydro T-EL™, a fully formulated lubricant developed with support from the US Department of Energy to have the performance characteristics of a traditional Hydropower Turbine oil while eliminating the risk of contamination of public waterways.
