Chemistry and Technology of Lubricants
The first edition of this book was adopted as the lubricant industry's bible. This new edition provides an update on recent advances in lubrication and gives information concerning the underlying chemistry of lubricants. All the principal applications of lubricants are covered as are the base fluid types and various classes of additive. Directed principally at those working in the lubricants industry, or those in academia seeking a chemist's viewpoint of lubrication, it is also a critical reference for engineers and technologists who use lubricants and require a more fundamental understanding of the subject.
