A high‑performance fluoroelastomer material specifically formulated for compatibility with Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants in marine applications.
Bi-O-Lion has been developed as part of an extensive compatibility testing programme designed to provide a clear understanding of the effect on seals and components of switching to Environmentally Acceptable Lubricant (EAL) products.
Through this programme we explored the suitability of a vast range of elastomer formulations against more than 30 major EAL products currently in use.
Bi-O-Lion is a high-performance fluoroelastomer material which has been specifically formulated for compatibility with Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants (EALs) and EAL / seawater media:
Bi-O-Lion has been tested with over 30 of the most common EALs currently in use. As the number of EALs on the market continues to grow, our test programme will also continue. Future results will be published on this website but if a specific lubricant is not currently featured in our results, and you would like it testing, please ask your EAL supplier to contact us.
Bi‑O‑Lion fluoroelastomer has been Type Approved, by Bureau Veritas, for use in a marine propulsion sealing gland application. Download the Bureau Veritas certification here.
