Lubricating grease is formulated based on certain composition of components of materials. The components are the base oil, thickener and additives. To be used as lubricant grease, it has to be tested to be sure that it is suitable to be grade as lubricant grease. This formulation of lubricant grease is generally called a bio-grease because of the raw material used to make the lubricant grease-are- from-natural resources. To formulate this grease, it has to be certain with the composition of the components. The behavior of the grease is depends on the materials' type and its amount of composition in use. Thus, certain analysis is done towards this formulation of lubricant grease to discover or determine its characteristic. The analysis or characterizations are the penetration, dropping point test, kinematic viscosity, and density analysis. The result shows that this formulation is NLGI 0 which is soft in texture. While dropping point test within 2 hours shows that the melting point for this formulation is up to 220.67'C.
