Evonik Oil Additives’ Dr. Michael Webb, Technical Service Manager, will present a paper titled “Evaluation of ILSAC GF-5 Aged Oil Performance by ROBO Test” on Monday, May 6 at 1:30 p.m. at the Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers (STLE) 68th Annual Meeting and Exhibition at the Detroit Marriott in the Renaissance Center in Detroit, Michigan.
High-performance synthetic lubricants are formulated to meet specific application requirements. Proper selection depends, to some extent, on the lubrication goals, such as optimize friction, reduce wear, extend service intervals or simply increase reliability.
Contaminated industrial plants cost billions every year in Germany alone. Special coatings can prevent the build-up of contaminants. Researchers are now able to adapt ultra-thin coatings for an extremely wide range of applications.
Anti-seize pastes are a class of specialty lubricants that contain synergistic combinations of lubricating solids in base oils. High solids content makes these pastes far different than conventional greases, which are formulated with little or no solid lubricants. They are especially suited for severe-duty applications involving high loads, harsh environments, extreme heat, or low sliding speeds or oscillatory movements.
Chemetall, a leading innovator in metalworking fluids, introduces Tech Cool® 35048BF, the ideal solution for global manufacturers requiring premium performance. Boron continues to see increased regulatory pressure in the United States and Europe, resulting in many corporations reducing or eliminating the substance from their chemical programs. Chemetall is proud to offer Tech Cool 35048BF, an improvement to the highly successful Tech Cool 35048 chemistry.
Tribology, the science and engineering of interacting surfaces in relative motion, is used to study the effects of different types of lubricants on friction and wear. A typical tribosystem includes a lubricant, opposing surfaces, different speeds and loads, and the application environment. Choosing a lubricant for effective performance begins with the specific lubrication or friction regime involved.
