  Lubricant - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A lubricant (colloquially, lube, although this usually refers to personal lubricants) is a substance (usually a liquid) introduced between two moving surfaces to reduce the friction and wear between them.
Sulfur impurities in fuels also provide some lubrication properties, which has to be taken in account when switching to a low-sulfur diesel; biodiesel is a popular diesel fuel additive providing additional lubricity.
In most countries, there are efficient collection processes for used lubricants and the majority of this is used directly as a heavy fuel oil.

 Oil Analysis and Lubrication Dictionary
The more severe cases of boundary lubrication are defined as extreme pressure conditions; they are met with lubricants containing EP additives that prevent sliding surfaces from fusing together at high local temperatures and pressures.
a system of lubrication in which a metered amount of lubricant or lubricants for the bearing surfaces of a machine or group of machines are supplied from a central location.
The phenomenon observed among gear lubricants and greases when they thicken due to cold weather or other causes, to such an extent that a groove is formed through which the part to be lubricated moves without actually coming in full contact with the lubricant.

 Oil Analysis and Lubrication Dictionary
Centralized lubrication -- a system of lubrication in which a metered amount of lubricant or lubricants for the bearing surfaces of a machine or group of machines are supplied from a central location.
Full-fluid-film lubrication is normally hydrodynamic lubrication, whereby the oil adheres to the moving part and is drawn into the area between the sliding surfaces, where it forms a pressure -- or hydrodynamic -- wedge.
Thin film lubrication -- a condition of lubrication in which the film thickness of the lubricant is such that the friction between the surfaces is determined by the properties of the surfaces as well as by the viscosity of the lubricant.

 Lubricant technology today
Although the use of lubricants is as old as mankind, scientific focus on lubricants and lubrication technology is relatively new.
The lubrication efficiency and the application of lubricants is further dependent upon key parameters like consistency, flow properties or viscosity in the case of oils, which also appear in nearly all lubricant specifications.
Lubricant effectiveness is assessed by bench scale and full scale testing in the laboratory and in the field.

 Personal Lubricant Information Site   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-19)
By using personal lubricant during sex, a ‘comfort barrier’ is formed between the penis and vagina, penis and anus etc. Depending on the texture of the personal lubricant used the personal lubricant can actually increase stimulation.
By using personal lubricant with a condom during sex the risk can be dramatically decreased, this is because the personal lubricant forms a lubricating barrier over the condom reducing the stresses on the condom, and therefore reducing the risk of condom breakage.
When selecting a personal lubricant look for a smooth even texture (more natural feel), last-ability, non-staining (for obvious reasons) condom safe and these day’s natural ingredients are so important (considering the body parts you are using it on), although not essential.

 Pulp & Paper: Right Lubricant for the Right Job Helps Lower Machine Operating Costs, The
Lubricants in wet environments are often prone to sheering.
Because high-performance lubricants can cost more, opting to use one of these lubricants almost always involves overcoming the additional hurdle of "price justification." This becomes somewhat of a "Catch 22" situation, wherein the cost justification required for purchase approval cannot be documented until after the lubricant has been purchased and put to use.
Lubricants should be upgraded whenever the upgraded lubricant produces benefits or savings that exceed the additional cost of the oil.

 Super Slik Lubricant The water based lubricant thats condom safe   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-19)
Natual sexual lubricants do not work well with the latex of a condom as they would with normal skin to skin contact and it is this reason that many condoms come pre lubricated in an attempt to make the experience more natural.
Many couples that have realised that sexual encounters are better when using a condom because of the lubricant have started to use personal lubricants insted of the lubricated condom.
In anal sex NO natural sexual lubricants are released and this can lead to extensive damage to either party and if a condom is being used that can also become damaged.
