Mineral oil residue contamination of food packaging is increasingly becoming an issue for consumer protection organisations. Instead of waiting for legislation to force action, OKS has launched its first MOSH/MOAH-free adhesive lubricant.


Mineral Oil Saturated Hydrocarbons (MOSH) and Mineral Oil Aromatic Hydrocarbons (MOAH) in recycled paper and cardbord food packaging can pass into the packaged food. To protect consumers, OKS is undertaking a long-term development program to avoid these substances in lubricants for the food industry.

The first result of the program is OKS 3750 / 3751 Adhesive Lubricant with PTFE, whihc has been modified to be free from MOSH/MOAH.

NSF H1 certified, the product is especially suitable for lubricating drive and transport chains on sorting, conveying and packaging systems. OKS 3750 / 3751 is PTFE-enriched to enhance its wear protection, pressure absorption, oxidation, aging-resistance and creeping properties. 

It also provides good resistance to media such as cold and hot water, steam, alkaline and acidic disinfectants and cleaning agents.
