Plastic Lubricants Market: Global Industry Analysis 2012 - 2016 and Opportunity Assessment; 2017 - 2027

Market Overview

Introduction: Plastic Lubricants Market

A lubricant is a material, available in the form of organic substance, and is applicable where there is need of reduction of friction between two surfaces. Lubricant can reduces the heat generated between two contacting, interlocking or meshing surfaces. Along with this, lubricants have capability of transmitting, transporting particles along with it within a system. This property which can reduce the friction is called as lubricity. Plastic lubricants are those lubricants which are silicone fluids and they are free from water or solvents. The silicon in the lubricants plays a vital role as it reduces the coefficient of friction between rubber and plastic parts. Plastic lubricants provides excellent lubrication for the rubber and plastic material surfaces. These lubricants are odourless, colourless, and clear and also are non-flammable. Plastic lubricants are available in different viscosities ranging from fifty to one thousand centistoke. The plastic lubricants have various physical properties which makes it popular such as, high dielectric strength, high resistance to shear, provides excellent thermal conductivity and many more. Growth for the plastic lubricants markets is expected gain potential in the near term and is expected to grow with the healthy CAGR in between the forecast period.
