About This ReportRelated ReportsTable of Contents

This report is intended to help buyers of greases, a type of semisolid lubricant consisting of oil and a thickener that acts like a sponge to retain the oil. Other ingredients can be added to grease, including rust inhibitors and oxidation preventatives. Because of its thicker consistency, grease has a longer working life than liquid oil lubricants and can perform better under high temperatures. This fact makes greases a popular choice for heavy machinery and other industrial equipment, which is hard to take apart and expensive to maintain. Furthermore, silicone greases are often used to lubricate rubber components due to oil’s corrosive effect on rubber. Suppliers include retailers, wholesalers and, primarily, manufacturers.
