This text details the design of cost-effective, environmentally friendly lubricant additive technologies and components for the automotive, industrial, manufacturing, food, and aerospace industries. Presenting methods to improve the performance and stability of lubricants, protect metal surfaces against wear, and to control deposits and contaminants such as wear debris, sludge, acids, and peroxides, Lubricant Additives is a worthy addition to libraries used by mechanical, lubrication, chemical, automotive, aerospace, design, aeronautical, heat transfer, and petroleum engineers, tribologists, research and petroleum chemists, lubricant formulators, and upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in these disciplines. It also contains a disk displaying current Internet resources for the lubricant industry.
