Lubricants consist of a base oil generally derived from mixing crude oil and additives. Compounds are added in small amounts until a lubricating oil forms, matching the desired level of quality and type of application. Lubricants are used for reducing friction and wear caused when two surfaces rub together. Lubricants also play an essential role in sealing, cooling, protecting and cleaning machinery – guaranteeing their effective operation and longevity.
