Ecological, rapidly biodegradable rail and wheel flange lubricant

Performance Features

  • temperature range: -30 / +80 °C
  • protects against corrosion
  • very good adhesion
  • excellent protection against wear
  • the solid lubricant portion guarantees a shear-resistant EP film
  • good resistance to water
  • readily biodegradable acc. to OECD 301 C


LOCOLUB ECO is a dark-grey, smooth semi-fluid grease, based on a rapidly biodegradable oil and containing an inorganic thickener. It also contains an optimized combination of solid lubricants. LOCOLUB ECO is free of halogen compounds and heavy metals.

Field of application

Railroad vehicles:
- wheel flange lubrication
- initial lubrication and maintenance of mechanical components of brake mechanisms, e.g. couplings, adjusting spindles, etc.

Machinery and equipment:
- wheel flange lubrication systems, e.g. on portal crane systems, mobile platforms, etc.
- Open Gears, e.g. of crane equipment, mobile platforms, ect.
- couplings and pin joints

Method of application

LOCOLUB ECO can be applied manually or via automatic wheel flange lubrication systems, e.g. BEKA Fluilub, DeLimon, Rebs, Saxonia, Secheron, SEPULS, Vogel, Woerner, etc.


LOCOLUB ECO has the German Railway material no. “DB-Material-Nr. 00517718” (previously 077.14).
If a few boundary conditions are taken into account, LOCOLUB ECO may also be used for rail head wetting. In such a case please contact our application engineering.

The performance of our products can be influenced by a series of factors, especially the specific use, the method of application, the operational environment, component pretreatment, possible external contamination, etc. For this reason, universally valid statements about the function of our products are not possible. Our products must not be used in aircraft/spacecraft or parts thereof. This does not apply if the products can be removed again before the components are fitted in an aircraft/spacecraft. The information given here represents general, non-binding guidelines. No warranty expressed or implied is given concerning the properties of the product or its suitability for any given application. We therefore recommend that you consult a FUCHS Group application engineer to discuss application conditions and the performance criteria of the products before the products are used. It is the responsibility of the user to test the functional suitability of the products and to use them with the corresponding care. Our products are subject to continuous further development. We therefore retain the right to change our product range, the products, and their manufacturing processes as well as all details on this side at any time and without warning, provided that no customer-specific agreements exist that require otherwise.
