Environmentally compatible hydraulic oil based on fully-saturated synthetic esters.


The PLANTOSYN HVI oils are environmentally acceptable high-performance hydraulic and lubricating oils based on saturated synthetic esters. These oils can be used universally in all hydraulic systems, even under severe operating conditions. PLANTOSYN 46 HVI has been tested and approved by well-known manufacturers of hydraulic components like Bosch Rexroth and Sauer Sundstrand. PLANTOSYN HVI products fulfill and surpass the requirements according to ISO 15380. PLANTOSYN HVI products are normally compatible with materials usually found in hydraulic systems. For dynamically stressed seals the use of Viton FKM material is recommended.


PLANTOSYN HVI oils are rapidly biodegradable synthetic saturated ester oils for the toughest demands. They can be used in all applications in mobile and stationary hydraulic units where the use of biodegradable synthetic ester based hydraulic oil according to ISO 15380 HEES is recommended. The PLANTOSYN HVI products should be used where oil leakage or oil spillage will lead to soil or water pollution. PLANTOSYN HVI products can be used as an alternative to conventional HLP/HM hydraulic oils and have been proven their perfect suitability in many applications, e.g., construction machinery, earth moving equipment, loading cranes, floor conveyor vehicles and mobile hydraulic platform systems. The application temperatures can be between -30 °C and 100 °C tank temperatures. Temperatures above 100 °C are temporarily possible.

The change over procedures according ISO 15380 should be observed. After changing over to PLANTOSYN HVI fluids the oil filters in the hydraulic system should be checked after 50 operating hours and, if necessary, changed

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.
