The looming introduction of one of the most complex specifications to date is top of mind for formulators. Two companies share how they are preparing for the new standard.
Volume 26, Issue 2: February 2020 Lubes'n'Greases Magazine
The mining industry is infamously dirty, but biobased lubricants are lending a bit of spit and polish to its image.
Testing hydraulic fluids is pricy. Fortunately, a new bench test can help cut costs by weeding out inadequate fluids from the get-go.
Engine oil specs are increasing the technical demands put on base oils and pushing formulators toward using more synthetics--some of which may not even be on the market yet.
Lubes'n'Greases is LNG Publishing'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 two popular supplements: the Global Guide to Base Oil Refining in June and the Global Guide to Nonconventional Base Stocks in September. Digital subscribers in the United States and Canada will also receive these supplements.
