Food grade esters

Safe lubrication for the food industry 


Food processing plants are strongly encouraged to use lubricants approved for incidental food contact to ensure limitation of risks in case of leakage in mechanical equipment.

H1-certified oils and greases have been developed to respond to this growing demand and NYCO offers several synthetic esters (diesters, neopolyol and complex esters), HX-1-certified, approved for use in H1 lubricants.

Main advantages

The NYCOBASE FG series exhibits the same features and provides the same benefits as other synthetic esters:

  • Wide viscosity range up to 10,000 mm2/s at 40°C
  • High thermal and oxidative stability
  • Low volatility
  • High film thickness
  • Excellent low-temperature properties
  • Good solvency


  • Hydraulic fluids
  • Gear oils
  • Air compressor oils
  • High temperature chain oils
  • Greases
