Micronox® Industrial Lubricants 

JAX Micronox® Technology is a proprietary, registered antimicrobial preservative that is incorporated into JAX’s USDA/NSF-registered H1 lubricants. This development protects Micronox® lubricants from JAX Micronox® Technology being a potential source of microbial contamination or degradation, making them a superior choice for food and beverage processing plants. Micronox® antimicrobial agents combat bacteria, yeast, and mould, providing immediate and significant protection against microbial colonies, in addition to traditional biostatic colony growth inhibition. This advanced technology is effective for any food or beverage plant’s quality control or hazard analysis and critical control points — HACCP — program and is a groundbreaking advance in food-grade lubrication. Due to concerns about public health claims that the industry has today, it should be noted that; although JAX Micronox® Technology provides protection for the lubricant against contamination or degradation by bacteria from food, it does not protect users or others against these bacteria. 

How does JAX Micronox® Technology Compare to Other Food-grade Lubricants? 

Micronox® Technology offers several unique advantages over other food-grade lubricants, including:

  1. Unsurpassed performance in preserving and protecting food-grade lubricants from microbial contamination or degradation, particularly in meat, poultry, and other meat processing environments.
  2. Provides immediate and significant knockdown of microbial colonies, in addition to traditional biostatic growth inhibition. This makes it ideal for various food processing equipment and machinery, as well as high-temperature aseptic processing environments.
  3. Micronox® is a proprietary, registered antimicrobial preservative that is incorporated into JAX’s USDA/NSF-registered H1 lubricants. It is authorised by the FDA under 21 CFR 178.3570 for use in “Lubricants with Incidental Food Contact”.
  4. Micronox® is stable and retains its antimicrobial activity in acidic, neutral, and alkaline media, and in the presence of proteins, fats, and oils, protecting the lubricant from contamination by foodborne microorganisms and inhibiting contamination and degradation of the lubricant.
  5. JAX has been a pioneer in the field of food-safe lubricants for over 60-years and was the first to introduce food-grade lubricants to the market in 1962, as approved by the United States Department of Agriculture.
