Volume 23, Issue 6: June 2017 Lubes'n'Greases Magazine
U.S.-based producer Bardahl is pushing its way back into Indonesia a decade after being squeezed out of the countrys lubes market.
At the environmentally sensitive oil-to-water interface, stern tube lubricants must adhere to strict standards. New oils and hardware are vying for the chance to keep seafarers in compliance.
