Product Overview

Lubricants refer to any material which aids to reduce friction between surfaces connected mutually. Lubricants avoid corrosion when applied on both inner and outer surfaces. Industrial lubricant is a mixture of components such as liquid, fluid, and greases used to reduce binding and friction and also to lessen the wear and tear of substances. Industrial lubricants contain emulsions, mineral oils, synthetic lubricants, or petroleum. Industrial lubricants can be solid, semi-solid, fluid, or plastic material. They have an organic or inorganic base. It is used for the lubrication of all types of products related to industrial machines including turbines, hydraulic systems, open and closed gears, compressors, industrial transmission, and pneumatic tools. They enhance the performance and efficiency of machinery and offer them a longer life. They are primarily used in automotive, aerospace, marine, and military services.
