About ProOne
Based in Orange County, California, ProOne, Inc. has developed proprietary lubrication technology which reduces friction better than anything else on the market and has over 50 times the film strength of conventional lubricants. ProOne products are environmentally friendly being mostly vegetable based, non-corrosive, non-reportable, and helping to reduce the consumption of natural resources such as electricity and fossil fuels.

ProOne's XPL+ (Xtreme Pressure Lubrication) technology dramatically reduces heat & friction at points of metal-to-metal contact, helping to reduce wear, extend equipment life, lower energy consumption, prevent costly downtime and lower maintenance costs. While typical lubricants tend to migrate away from heat sources, XPL+ has a strong ionic (+) charge which allows it to bond to metal even under extreme heat and pressure, giving XPL+ lubricants unprecedented film strength and extreme pressure protection. ProOne's line of lubricants includes engine treatments, cutting oils, cutting fluids, motor oils, gear lubes, hydraulic oils, spray lubricants and greases, many of which are biodegradable.

Marketing its proprietary XPL+ (Xtreme Pressure Lubrication) lubrication technology globally, ProOne's primary focus is on the commercial and industrial markets where its environmentally friendly line of products takes lubrication to the next level of performance.

The principals involved with ProOne have decades of experience in the lubrication industry developing and marketing patented state-of-the-art technology. Formed in 2007 to market environmentally friendly lubrication products, ProOne, Inc. is the operating division of ProOne Holdings, Inc.
