Lubricants are basically substances that are used to control or diminish friction along with wearing of surfaces that are coming in contact with various bodies in relative motion. Lubricants are generally classified into liquid, semi-liquid, solid, and gaseous on the basis of their state. These high-performance substances are extensively used in several end-user industries as corrosion inhibitors, anti-wear additives, friction modifiers, viscosity index improvers, and extreme pressure (EP) additives.
