Lubes'n'Greases is LNG's flagship, award-winning, independent monthly magazine for and about the global lubricants industry. Every month, print and digital editions deliver hard news, features and informed opinions covering automotive and industrial lubricants, metalworking fluids, greases, base stocks, additives, packaging, biodegradable and synthetic products, companies, people, issues and trends affecting the industry.
The print edition is free to qualified subscribers in the United States and Canada and available on a paid-subscription basis elsewhere. The digital edition, an exact replica of the print magazine, is free to qualified subscribers worldwide.
All print-edition subscriptions include three popular supplements: the Global Guide to Base Oil Refining in June, the Lubricants Industry Factbook in August, and the Global Guide to Nonconventional Base Stocks in September. Digital subscribers in the United States and Canada will also receive these supplements.
