1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Dr D M Barr, Lubrizol. on 26 Aug. 2003
Format: Hardcover
It's about time that somebody provided an up-to-date replacement for Mortier & Orszulik's "Chemistry and Technology of Lubricants" and this is definitely it. This book will be one of my cornerstone references many years to come.
Part I features 14 excellent chapters on additive componentry, written by some key industry figures such as Cyril Migdal on Antioxidants and Thomas Buenemann on organic friction modifiers.
Part II covers 5 areas of application. As well as the obligatory chapter on Crankcase (Ewa Bardasz & Gordon Lamb), this section also includes 'niche' areas such as magnetic recording disk drives (Karis & Nagaraj) and food-grade lubricants (Raab & Hamid).
Part III covers trends and includes an informative chapter on crankcase additives from an OEM perspective - Schwartz & Papasavva from GM.
Part IV covers methods and resources and includes many useful pointers to reference books and internet materials. The book also includes a CD with links to many online resources.
Overall, an excellent reference manual and a very worthy investment for Formulators & Technologists in the lubricant industry.
