Lubricating Oils

A lubricant is a substance introduced to reduce friction between moving surfaces. It may also have the function of transporting foreign particles. The property of reducing friction is known as lubricity. Typically lubricants contain 90% base oil (most often petroleum fractions, called mineral oils) and less than 10% additives.

Types of lubricants

Automotive applications dominate, but other industrial, marine, and metal working applications are also big consumers of lubricants. Although air and other gas-based lubricants are known, e.g., in fluid bearings, liquid and solid lubricants dominate the market, especially the former.

Lubricants are generally composed of a majority of base oil plus a variety of additives to impart desirable characteristics. Although generally lubricants are based on one type of base oil, mixtures of the base oils also are used to meet performance requirements.

The lubricant base oil is generally classified into three categories depending on the prevailing compositions:

  • Paraffinic
  • Naphthenic
  • Aromatic
