Ballistol is biodegradable. Neither its use or disposal will pollute our precious water, it’s natural decomposition will not produce any by products that may be harmful to the environment and the aerosol does not contain any CFC’s - butane and propane are used as the propellants. BALLISTOL allows you to protect, clean, preserve, lubricate, impregnate and disinfect your equipment without contaminating the environment.
BALLISTOL is based on medicinally pure white oil. This kind of oil is used in the field of pharmacy as a component of medicines. To people and animals as well as lower organisms it is absolutely non-toxic. As we also know today it does not contaminate water. If BALLISTOL oil gets into the soil it is decomposed by micro-organisms and integrated into natural circulation.
The active ingredients contained in BALLISTOL are to be found combined or uncombined with other elements in nature. Therefore they are decomposed in the course of natural circulation like all substances and compounds that have come into existence naturally. Consequently, they are no ecological risks. Neither is there any kind of chlorinated hydrocarbon in BALLISTOL, nor are there any other components in it, which would be detrimental to our environment such as PCB’s or dioxins.
Although sprays are objectionable in the eyes of environmentalists, we can't do without them in many fields of application. BALLISTOL-Spray comes up to the demands on an environment-friendly spray. It contains propane and butane as propellants and, in contrast to BALLISTOL-oil, pure hydrocarbon to improve the atomising effect. Propane, butane and this solvent are decomposed in the lower atmosphere within a fortnight to carbon dioxide and water. These two elements are also components of the natural circulation.
BALLISTOL makes a positive contribution to keeping our country tidy. BALLISTOL has always been bottled in glass, which can easily be recycled. In larger quantities BALLISTOL is only available in metal containers, never in plastic containers. These metals are also fully recyclable. The same is relevant to empty spray cans
As you can see, BALLISTOL has been ecologically aware and environment-friendly for decades, which we hope is an additional reason why BALLISTOL is number one product for you.
