Lubricants are not something most people spend their day thinking about. However, if you work in an industry where you use a lot of heavy equipment, manufacturing machinery, cars, trucks, assembly, robotics, or anything with an engine and mechanical moving parts, then lubricants are essential to your job. Without lubricants, parts would wear down a lot sooner, heat inside motors and machinery would become dangerously hot, and it would be harder to transmit power to do work.

Below, we’ll take a look at the different types of lubricants. Call for wholesale lubricant delivery in Ashville today!


  • Oil. Perhaps the original lubricant, oils are thin polymer chains that often carry additives for different purposes. For engine oil, common additives include antioxidants to help prevent oxidation, detergents to help prevent deposits from forming, and corrosion inhibitors to help prevent parts from corroding.
  • Grease. Grease is essentially an oil with an additive, in this case, a thickener. Grease helps the lubricant to stick to surfaces better, or grease is commonly used as a barrier to protect the surface from contaminants that can damage the surface in some way.
  • Penetrating lubricants. Penetrating lubricants’ primary job is to break up rust.
  • Dry lubricants. Dry lubricants are very slippery, so they help to reduce friction between items that come into contact with one another.
