What is Prolan?

Raw lanolin (wool grease) is a natural substance secreted by sheep to provide a protective coating on their fleece for protection in harsh conditions. Once the sheep have been shorn, the fleece undergoes a scouring and refining process to extract the lanolin and to clean the fleece.

At Prolan NZ, we use a specialized process to convert raw wool grease into a range of non-toxic environmentally friendly lubricants that are safe and easy to apply. The range of products is known as “PROLAN” and there are multiple ranges of applications from general industrial lubrication and preservation, to the protection of metals and electronics from corrosion and wear.
