Handbook of Lubricants

compiled by
Michael and Irene Ash


Handbook of Lubricants describes over 8,500 trade name and generic chemicals and materials used to provide lubricating effects in application areas that include:

  • agriculture
  • automotive
  • aviation
  • cosmetics
  • dental products
  • food and food processing
  • heavy equipment
  • fuel additives
  • metalworking
  • mining
  • marine
  • paints/coatings
  • pharmaceuticals
  • plastics/elastomers
  • pulp/paper
  • textiles

Both the reference and CD are designed to function as selection tools for deciding which is the most appropriate lubricant chemical to use in a formulation. A wide variety of lubricant types are included:

  • petroleum lubricants (based on hydrocarbon products)
  • synthetic lubricants (based on silicones, phosphate esters, silicate esters, polyglycol ether compounds, fluoral compounds, etc.)
  • liquid oily lubricants (based on animal and vegetable products)
  • solid lubricants (based on metals, organic, and inorganic compounds)

This reference centralizes information on these currently available chemicals and materials from major manufacturers by profiling both trade name and generic chemicals, detailing their properties, uses, use levels, regulatory status, toxicology, sources for purchase, etc.

Handbook of Lubricants is organized so that the reader can access information on these functional chemicals based on the trade name, chemical composition, function and application area, manufacturer, CAS number, and EINECS/ELINCS number. It is divided into four parts and includes three important appendixes.

Contents

PART I-Trade Name Reference

Trade Name Reference provides an alphabetical listing on more than 6,500 trade name chemicals and materials that are used in formulations requiring lubrication as a key or ancillary function. Each entry includes:

  • the manufacturer's name
  • chemical/material description
  • its detailed functions and applications in all aspects of industry
  • physical properties, such as form, molecular weight, density, solubility, boiling point, cloud point, flash point, pH, freezing point, activity
  • toxicology, storage, precautions, etc.

Software features: Full-text Search with Boolean operator support
Keyword Indexes: Comprehensive Index, Trade Name X-Ref, Generic Chemical X-Ref, Manufacturers X-Ref, CAS X-Ref, EINECS/ELINCS X-Ref, Functional/Applications X-Ref.
Hyperlinking: Trade names manufacturers to Manufacturers Directory and websites; Generic chemicals to Generic Products, Trade Name Cross-Reference

Part II-Chemical Component Cross-Reference

Covers more than 2,000 chemicals and materials that are contained in the trade name products profiled in Part I or generic chemicals that are not linked to trade names but are used in these lubricating formulations.

Each entry contains information including the following:

  • CAS (Chemical Abstract Service)
  • EINECS/ELINCS (European Inventory of Existing Commercial Chemical Substances/European List of Notified Chemical Substances)
  • UN/DOT reference numbers
  • classification
  • definition
  • chemical synonyms
  • empirical and molecular formulas
  • properties
  • toxicology
  • precautions
  • storage
  • uses
  • use level
  • regulatory details
  • manufacturers and distributors

All chemical/material synonyms are cross-referenced back to the main entry. These entries/ are followed by a listing of the trade name products that are either equivalent to the monograph entry or contain it as one or more of its ingredients.

Software features: Full-text Search with Boolean operator support
Keyword Indexes: Comprehensive Index, Trade Name X-Ref, Generic Chemical X-Ref, Manufacturers X-Ref, CAS X-Ref, EINECS/ELINCS X-Ref, Functional/Applications X-Ref., Molecular Formula Dir.
Hyperlinking: Trade names to Trade Name Reference, generic manufacturers to Manufacturers Directory, all cross-references (synonyms) to main entries

Part III-Functional/Application Index

A powerful tool for locating the trade names and chemicals based on their function and/or industrial application area. By searching for key functional words related to lubrication such as antiseize compound, compressor oil, coning oil, EP additive, lubricant, release agent, or specific application areas such as coatings, PVC processing, refrigeration, fuels, tableting, topical pharmaceuticals, creams and lotions, etc., the user is directed to the trade names and/or chemicals that have that specific functional/application attribute. The generic component names are distinguished from the trade names by italic type.

Software features: Full-text Search with Boolean operator support
Hyperlinking: Trade names to Trade name Section, Generics to Generic Chemical section

Part IV-Manufacturers Directory

Detailed contact information for the more than 2,000 worldwide manufacturers and their branches of trade name products and chemical components that are referenced in this handbook. Wherever possible, telephone, telefax, toll-free numbers, e-mail and internet addresses, and complete mailing addresses are included for each manufacturer.

Software features: Full-text Search with Boolean operator support
Keyword Indexes: Comprehensive Index, Manufacturers Dir., Manufacturers X-Ref., MFG Web&Email Directory
Hyperlinking: All cross-references (alternate names) to main entries, Manufacturer Web sites, Manufacturer Email

Additional Indexes

CAS Number Index contains CAS number entries followed by a listing of their trade name product and chemical equivalents in alphabetical order. The chemical name is in boldfaced type

EINECS/ELINCS Number Index contains EINECS/ELINCS number entries followed by a listing of their trade name product and generic chemical equivalents in alphabetical order. The chemical name is in boldfaced type

Glossary contains definitions of terminology associated with lubricants and their application areas

Software features: Full-text Search with Boolean operator support
Keyword Indexes: CAS-to-Chemicals Dir., Chemicals-to-CAS Dir., EINECS/ELINCS-to-Chemicals Dir., Chemicals-to-EINECS/ELINCS Dir.
Hyperlinking: Trade names to Trade name Section, Generics to Generic Chemical section
