Whether gear oil, machine grease or hydraulic oil: Industrial lubricants keep the economy going
The main function of lubricants is to keep friction surfaces separate from each other. The formation of a lubricant film prevents direct material contact between the frictional partner surfaces. In that however, the lubricants must ensure the greatest possible force transfer and at the same time reduce the friction and the resulting material wear. Lubricants also have a series of additional functions such as protection against rust formation, sealing of the lubrication point against dirt and environmental influences and removal of heat that occurs.
