Plant-based lubricant solutions for a sustainable future

What makes TAL's Biolubricants special?

All TAL lubricants are plant-based lubricants produced using TAL’s patented electromagnetic force-field system. TAL’s carbons come from photosynthesis and the lubricants leave a Carbon-zero footprint. All additives used to create TAL’s greases, antiseize compounds etc. are bio-based and/ or carbon neutral.


There are no hydrocarbon ingredients in TAL lubricants other than the propellant in the aerosol. This is a very important detail because large companies often produce and sell "Biobased lubricants" that are very toxic because all they have to do to earn a "Biobased" label is have 58% biobased content in their lubricants. Their very own safety data sheets often disclose this fact and provide customers an easy point of comparison vs. TAL's safety data sheets.

TAL's biobased rating is 93% for Enviro Oil and 96% for the Dry Lube.  All other products are 100% biobased. This fact makes TAL's portfolio of lubricants unequivocally the best for the environment.

About us

TAL lubricants was founded by a Eric M. Pettersen, Major United States Air Force (Ret). Eric worked on classified programs locating ground targets from ground, airborne platforms by finding enemy combatants through their electromagnetic signals. After being medically retired and given 100% VA disability (2004), Eric started R&D with electromagnetic forces and oils. Eric's expertise is complemented by several other lubricant industry experts.


Matthew S. Pettersen has a Bachelor’s Degree in Agriculture and a Master’s degree in Plant Pathology. Matt worked as a biological scientist at Shand’s Hospital University of Florida and was the first to recognize biostatic and standalone lubricant properties of oils.

Jerry F. Stults has a Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry and 42 years’ experience in working with lipids. Using his experience, TAL has found a way to make all liquids biostatic.

Martin (Marty) Palmer is a Master Machinist who designed and built TAL’s processing system using off the shelf materials. This process has improved output significantly while reducing complexity including improving the production on Tesla car parts using TAL greases.

Dana Elza is a key member of the technical team whose insights and expertise are continuously used in Development, Testing and Certification of TAL materials.

TAL's Chemistry

Lubricant chemistry requires significant additives such as antifungal, anti-bacteria, anti-corrosive etc. properties. This can lead to toxicity and pollutants in many lubricants. TAL’s force fields and plant-based lubricants provide these protections without additives or pollution. The TAL process produces non-toxic, anti-corrosive, biodegradable oils/grease etc. that do not harm the environment or workers, while being easier to clean and dispose of.

Tal’s lubricants are comprised of two key lubricants -- base oil and molybdenum disulfide. When treated in a reactor using TAL’s patented process, they become outstanding lubricants. After the oil is treated molybdenum is removed via centrifugation. These oils stand on their own as outstanding lubricants, and when mixed with biobased ingredients, they produce very high-quality greases, dry lube, anti-seizes, progressive die greases etc.
