are substances that are applied to reduce friction between surfaces that are in contact, to improve the functioning mechanism. Lubricants also help to reduce the heat produced when the lubricated surfaces move and may also serve to transmit forces, and transport foreign particles. Base oils make the majority of lubricants with some additives incorporated to generated favorable characteristics for the required performance. Crude oil is the source of mineral oil lubricants, which include Group I to V, aromatic, naphthenic, and paraffinic. Synthetic oils are derived from synthetic hydrocarbons, which are primarily derived from petroleum. Synthetic oils include Polyalpha-olefin (PAO), Polyalkylene glycols (PAG), phosphate, synthetic and silicate esters, ionic fluids, Alkylated N(AN) and multiple alkylated cyclopentane (MAC). Solid lubricants include Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), inorganic solids, and metal/alloys. Aqueous lubricants are used for specific technological applications, such as in hydrated brush polymers. Biolubricants come from vegetables and various renewable sources and are often triglyceride esters. They include whale oil, castor oil canola, and sunflower seed oil.
