Lubricants are used to reduce friction between moving parts or to reduce the resistance from fixed parts. They are produced by refining crude oil. There are several types of lubricants:
- Fluids (oils)
- Solids (Teflon, graphite)
- Consistents (grease or silicone gel)
Did you know?
Lubricants have different performance characteristics, but share one common characteristic, their main component: the “lubricating base”. The latter is the primary compo
nent of lubricants which can be synthetic or petroleum-based. IGOL offers a comprehensive range of hydraulic fluids, gear oils and other lubricating fluids for all industrial applications. See https://www.igol.com/en/catalog-category/industry/general-lubrication/
