The typical function of a lubricant is to protect against friction and wear. Lubricants are also used to protect against corrosion by displacing moisture and leaving a continuous coating on the part.
What considerations are important when choosing a lubricant?
When choosing a lubricant, it is important to consider the intended application as well as the environmental conditions to which the assembly will be exposed. Environmental conditions are critical to the successful selection of the right lubricant product. Factors including high temperature, harsh chemicals and contaminants may have an adverse effect on the expected lubricant performance.
