With cooler weather on its way for the Northern Hemisphere, Cortec® Corporation is pleased to announce its release of EcoLine® Rail Curve Grease, Winter.

This cold temperature rail curve grease addresses two of Cortec's major concerns in one product: 1. How to prolong durability of metal equipment and components. 2. How to do so using more environmentally responsible materials.

EcoLine® Rail Curve Grease, Winter, meets both of these criteria as a premium quality biobased, biodegradable grease designed to reduce friction and protect against wheel and rail wear in high pressure areas where rail curve greases are used. This has the benefit of promoting better fuel efficiency while reducing downtime and high costs associated with rail and wheel replacements.

EcoLine® Rail Curve Grease, Winter, is ideal for prolonged cold temperatures and can be used between 0°F and 100 °F (-17 °C and 37 °C). The grease carries far down the track and contains extreme pressure additives and graphite for heavy loads. It is designed for wayside applicators on rail curves and resists port plugging in wiping bars. It is also ideal for hi-rail application.

Based on vegetable oils and lithium-based thickener, EcoLine® Rail Curve Grease, Winter, reduces damage to the environment because of its biodegradable formula. It contains 80% USDA certified biobased content and is a qualified product under the mandatory federal purchasing initiative of the USDA BioPreferred® Program (see note 1). EcoLine® Rail Curve Grease, Winter, resists migration to the top of the rail better than a major petroleum-based grease and offers better gauge face coefficient of friction than most petroleum-based grease.

With winter approaching in northern climates, now is an excellent time for rail maintenance crews to make the switch to a cold-temperature, biobased, biodegradable grease that allows them to minimize friction in a more environmentally responsible manner (see note 2). Cortec® makes that possible with EcoLine® Rail Curve Grease, Winter
