What are Lubricants and Lubricating Oil?

In general, it is a substance that reduces friction when placed between two surfaces with relative motion.
There are lubricants with different grades and viscosities, although their functions have a lot of similarities:

  • Reduce friction between two metal surfaces.

  • Protect mechanical components from wear and corrosion.

  • Clean and cool engines.

  • Act as a sealant between the segments/pistons and jackets in order to prevent gas leaks from occurring inside the combustion chamber.
