Base oils can’t do it alone. Base oils serve as the foundation of all lubricants used in automotive products, including engine oils, transmission and gear lubricants, and greases. But base oils need the help of additives to maintain the proper viscosity for lubrication, improve performance, prevent contamination, avoid chemical breakdown, and protect engine parts.
Metalworking is in-demand. From the automotive industry to food manufacturing, producing parts, tools, and blades keep metalworking capabilities a top priority. With that heightened demand comes the need for high-performing, cost-effective machinery processes. And that means metalworking fluids, the fluids that make metalworking work.
As summer’s heat and humidity ramp up, the warm weather can be bad news for machinery. High temperatures and wet conditions create an increased threat of corrosion. Thankfully, corrosion inhibitors can help your business protect your agricultural or industrial investments from corrosion’s expensive effects. Read on for more details about what corrosion is and how lubricant additives can help avoid it.
The agricultural industry relies on modular and highly-specialized equipment to function, from tractors and combine harvesters to balers and more. These hard-working machines require special lubricants to make sure they run smoothly. Learn more about the oils and greases that help farm equipment perform its best, making a farmer’s job easier and more efficient.
Summertime is the perfect time to be on the water, whether working or playing. But how can you make sure your marine vehicles are properly lubricated and protected from corrosion? The National Lubricating Grease Institute (NLGI) has a new High-Performance Multiuse (HPM) standard that certifies greases for high performance in water resistance and salt-water corrosion resistance.
