Technical Bulletin 56: Acids & Bases

Technical Bulletin 56 explores the properties of acids and bases and their influence on lubricants. The importance of assessing acids and bases is discussed, as are the methods of assessment, and the positive and negative effects of acids and bases on industrial and mobile equipment.
