Reducing Friction: On Industrial Lubricants

Your car has a lot of moving parts. Most of the time this isn't a problem, but the trouble with moving parts is that friction develops when they move against one another. This results in heat buildup and damage to your car’s mechanical components, whether it's in the engine or in other parts of your vehicle. The primary way to avoid friction is the use of industrial lubricants. Here are a few examples of places in your car that might need their help.

·         The Engine. The combustion process requires pistons moving smoothly and quickly. Normally, grease would be used to ensure piston movement is frictionless; however, some industrial level lubricants can be better for your car if you want optimum performance.
·         The Wheels and Transmission. These are the other main moving parts of your car that need a lot of lubrication, especially if you are traveling long distances. Without adequate lubrication, your wheels will squeak, and the ball bearings and other parts that ensure a smooth ride will wear down more quickly, which can put you in harm’s way.

Finally, your chassis may need some lubrication. Car doors, windows, and your trunk may not seem that important but they are still a part of your car. Needless to say, you wouldn’t want your car doors making creaky sounds as you open them.
