Oils with high-performance additives for reliable lubrication

Oils dissipate heat well from the lubricating point. In addition, they have a notedly good creep and wetting behaviour. Therefore oil lubrication is often used at high temperatures or high speeds of rotation. Typical fields of application are gears, chains, friction bearings, hydraulics and compressors.
