ASTROBIO™ SR is used in the production of novel bio-based
ASTROBIO™ SR is already used by some of our costumers in the automotive industry.
Among others application, we discovered that ASTROBIO™ SR is really a great and a green
alternative to some grades of white spirits (i.e. dearomatized paraffins D60) when it

enhancing the ecotoxicological profile of their final formulations and their bio-based content.
The use of ASTROBIO™ SR is particularly recommended when the base of the lubricant
also comes from renewable sources or comes from green chemical processes. This
combination makes it possible to obtain a final product that is really 100% renewable and
has a truly green toxicological and eco-toxicological profile.
