Industrial lubricants are oils, fluids, greases, and other compounds that reduce friction, binding, wear, or exclude moisture. Their primary function is to displace solid surfaces with a fluid film. They are otherwise used to modify surface properties, regulate temperature, or remove debris. The ideal lubricant minimalizes solid-to-solid contact and reduces any amount of friction that would otherwise impede movement and induce wear.
