Greases Procurement in the US

This report is intended to help buyers of greases, which are a type of semisolid lubricant consisting of oil and a thickener. Other ingredients can be added to grease to enhance its longevity, including rust inhibitors and oxidation preventatives. Because of its thicker consistency, grease has a longer working life than liquid oil lubricants and can perform better under high temperatures. These factors make greases a popular choice for lubricating heavy machinery and other industrial equipment that is difficult and expensive to maintain. Furthermore, silicone greases are often used to lubricate rubber components due to the corrosive effect oil has on rubber. Other types of lubricants, such as automotive lubricating oil and hydraulic oil, are excluded from this report.
