Tribology is the science of friction and wear and the chemistry behind managing friction & wear is Lubricant. Chemistry and technology of lubricant had been limited to mineral oil and natural oil-based resources since foundation. However, as technology evolves and performance requirements becoming more demanding, there is a clear shift to new generation chemistry of Semi-synthetics and Synthetics which are a blend of precise molecules and designed to deliver demanding performance requirements.
