Plantoil Ltd is the UK's leading supplier of bio-lubricants, dedicated to providing UK arborists, foresters and sawmillers with highly-effective, non-toxic, biodegradable lubricants.
Best known for our successful lubricants for Chain Saws and Harvesters, which we introduced into Britain over 15 years ago, our portfolio of cost-effective bio-lubricants also includes a range of Sawmilling Lubricants, 2-Stroke Oil, Hydraulic Oil and alkylate petrol.
Plant-based oils are more efficient lubricants than mineral oils; they naturally provide higher lubricity and superior adhesion to metal. The result is more effective lubrication, reduced usage and longer life-cycles for saw blades.
Plantoil lubricants are readily biodegradable and toxologically safe, which means they have minimum impact on the environment and the people who use them; users are no longer exposed to the health risks and discomfort associated with mineral oils.
The UK Woodland Assurance Standard (UKWAS) states that biodegradable oils should be used 'where practical' and Forestry Commission policy requires that its own machines use bio-chain and bio-hydraulic oils as a best practice standard for the industry. The use of biodegradable chain oil is compulsory for contractors working in Forestry Commission forests.
