Lubricating oil is a class of oils used to reduce the friction, heat, and wear between mechanical components that are in contact with each other. Lubricating oil is composed of base oils and additives, and used in motorized vehicles, where it is known specifically as motor oil and transmission fluid. There are two basic categories of lubricating oil: mineral and synthetic. Mineral oils are lubricating oils refined from naturally occurring crude oil. Synthetic oils are lubricating oils that are manufactured. Lubricating grease is a semisolid lubricant, which is composed of three main components: base oil, performance enhancing additives, and thickener. The characteristic feature of greases is that they possess a high initial viscosity. Lubricating oils and greases are commonly used lubricants in lubricating systems. Lubricating oils are often referred to as greases with a small viscosity coefficient, which are liquid at room temperature. Greases are often referred to as slightly larger viscosity coefficients, which are often solid at room temperature.
