Lubricants are products classified as construction chemicals, which are primarily used to reduce the friction that occurs between the surfaces of various objects. This phenomenon is very common when components are in direct contact with each other and move relative to each other. Lubricants penetrate into the gaps between the surfaces and, thanks to their consistency, form a special sliding layer. In this way, the friction is leveled and the objects are not destroyed quickly. These types of products can have different textures. There are solid, semi-fluid, liquid and gas lubricants. Most often, the main ingredients responsible for slipping are silicone oil and towot. Among the additives, you can also find copper, graphite, Teflon and tarflen. Lubricants are also used to improve heat dissipation and protect metal equipment from corrosion.
