About the Book: Lubricating grease (or grease, to use a short name), leaving aside synthetic grease for the moment, is arguably amongst the highest value added petroleum products. Lubricating greases play very crucial role in the performance of automobiles, industrial machinery and appliances which almost every one of us use, rely upon or work with everyday. Lubricating greases account for about 5% of the global consumption of the lubricants, which in turn account for about 1% of all petroleum products. Thus, in volume terms, lubricating greases constitute a relatively small, specialized industry. Nonetheless, the importance of lubricating greases cannot be overemphasized. The world would quite literally grind to a halt without lubricating greases. There are not many books on lubricating greases. Even the very few books that are available in English language, largely encapsulate the work and knowledge developed in North America and West Europe. Significant scientific and technological advancements were achieved in the erstwhile East Bloc countries during the second half of the 20th century. However, it is only over the last two decades that those outside the erstwhile East Bloc have been getting glimpses of the prolific work done by scientists and technologists in that part of the world. This book endeavours to further this process in a small way.
