Petro-Canada ENVIRON AW 46

Product Description

Petro-Canada’s ENVIRON AW hydraulic fluids are non-toxic, inherently biodegradable and recyclable and are therefore particularly suited for hydraulic applications in environmentally sensitive locations. ENVIRON AW hydraulic fluids are robust anti-wear straight grade hydraulic fluids designed for use in both mobile and stationary heavy duty hydraulic systems.

ENVIRON AW starts with a 99.9% pure, crystal clear base oil. By removing the impurities that can hinder the performance of competitive conventional oils, and blending in our specialty additives, ENVIRON AW delivers exceptional performance.

Oil Type / Applications

  • Biodegradable
  • Hydraulic Oil

Reduce occurrence of waste water contamination by metals

• Transition metal content in ground water or waste water streams is a concern because it bio-accumulates in the food chain. ENVIRON AW does not contain metal based additives.

Non-toxic and very low odour

• Not acutely toxic to fish, daphnia or algae according to the United Nations Globally Harmonized System (GHS) criteria
• ENVIRON AW contributes to a cleaner, safer and more pleasant work environment


• Can be recycled and reclaimed, unlike vegetable oil based products, which have to be incinerated or land farmed

Inherently biodegradable

• Greater than 30% biodegradability within a 28 day period according to OECD 301B (vs. 20% minimum for inherently biodegradable classification)

Excellent anti-wear, rust and corrosion protection

• Designed to meet or exceed the performance requirements of conventional anti-wear hydraulic oils

Superior oxidation and thermal stability compared to competitive vegetable oil based products and conventional hydraulic oils

• Longer oil life, which extends the time between oil changes
• Helps reduce sludge and varnish deposits to ensure smooth, reliable operation of hydraulic valves and actuators

Excellent water separability and hydrolytic stability allows oil to be reused

• ENVIRON AW separates readily from water without loss of performance additives

Excellent resistance to foaming

Excellent air release performance

• Formulated for use within environmentally sensitive areas as well as for use in industrial manufacturing plants

• Can be used in hydraulic pumps with silver bearings such as Lucas pumps because they will not displace the silver in these bearings, as they do not contain zinc-based anti-wear additives.

• NSF H2 listed (no allowable food contact)
